  • I would just sit down and tell him exactly what you told us... don't worry about feeling foolish or anything, doctors hear everything...you could try finding a doctor in your area that handles Adhd.

    Do you have any other kind of symptoms, physical or mental? Such as racing thoughts, impulsivity?

  • I agree with tntmom1027 - we always think we're going to sound foolish but doctor's hear many different things all the time - they are really just interested in how they can help you. Make a list of questions to take with you to your appointment - that way, you won't have to try and remember since you'll have everything written down. There could be a lot of things going on or something as simple as having a lot on your mind/things to do. Let your doctor diagnose you and then go from there. GL
