Hey there. I don't know whether it is worth pushing for a referral. I'm feeling more disorganised, procrastinating more, unable to motivate myself to tasks etc. I recently turned 40 and i feel like it's getting worse. I know if I push for a referrral they're going to ask me about my childhood but honestly I know I was a bit dreamy and spacey but I was compliant. Made it through school, uni, masters everything. I was a bit withdrawn but I managed to have some friends at least, although I didn't really understand all the rules around friendship. I had one major blowout with a friend who dumped me 10 years ago and I still haven't recovered. I don't know if it's related.
I'm feeling really lost and not sure if they'll just say I have depression because it looks so similar. I feel as though I hide everything really well but any day now am gonna get found out and lose my job.
Hi I don’t know if this helps I’m a rare case I did not have ADHD as a child, my psychiatrist has given me a diagnose after interviewing my mother and husband. I have had it since I would say my teens... I was misdiagnosed with chronic fatigue syndrome for 20years and have just been diagnosed 5 months ago at the age of 52. I keep asking if I’m making it up because for years I was told you have ME, depression and anxiety. He has to reassure me that I’m not it’s that it is very rare to not to have it as a child .. I am his first and to say I’m struggling is an understatement but I I did go private in the end because I was told a psychiatrist would not see me for ME and the reason I went private I couldn’t cope with the symptoms anymore so it’s worth getting it checked. It could be depression but that what I was told along with ME and anxiety so it is possible.
