I didn't realize that "adult ADHD" exsisted.. but when I found out it was kind of a "DUH" moment.. lol. Why wouldn't it?
I started reading about it and.. I honestly suspect that I have it. I swear I'm not lazy, really.. but I procrastinate..even at work and for no reason, I can't stay on task for anything, I want to listen intently to my DF all the time.. but I frequently find myself day dreaming, I drive distracted (and I've gotten multiple speeding tickets because of it :( ), I always have to be doing something with my hands, even at work I'm often distracted by e-mails, other conversations, anything. I often rely on either espresso to keep me extra caffeinated to get things done and sometimes at home use marijuana to help me focus on cleaning and getting stuff at home done.
I am unorganized and always have been.. I mean I do try to be organized and I've gotten better and better.. but it's just always been a thing of mine : I'm sweet, kind, compassionate and funny.. I'm also unorganized, distracted, and usually late.. I just thought it was part of my personality.. but maybe it's more?
It's affecting my work, and I'm nervous.
I want to talk to a specialist or something about it.. but who do I seek out? My regular physician or what? I also don't want to look like an idiot.. "Hey.. I'm lazy and I think this is why.. so can I have something for it?" lol.. oh I dont know..
Do any of you experience this.. or have any of you actually been diagnosed?
