Yeap, I've got ADHD :/ And some depression but i think and the doc thinks, it stems and is very linked to, the adhd.

 

He showed me some stats and apparently if you have it, your kids have a 57% chance of having it too. Yikes! I don't know if that's just one parent though.

 

Anyways, i'm hopeful i can get some help and help my son too. He has his own doc (developmental pedi) but I'm glad we got this adhd household under wraps. :)

 

I graduated from college with a computer engineering degree. I still have to do something with it - lol - but if I made it that far, I'm hopeful that my son can make it farther :)

I've never been tested as an adult, but self checking the check lists shows me as having it every time.  My doctor asked if I wanted a formal diagnosis last year, but..  I don't really know what the point would be.  

The other day though, I was at work and just having a REALLY bad day of my own.  I'd start to open a file and forget halfway through it what file it was I was supposed to be openning.  I'd read the same stuff seven or eight time, just couldn't concentrate on anything.  I don't have days THAT bad very often, but I do have difficultly concentrating alot set off by periods of hyperfocus, so luckily they sort of counterbalance at work.  But last Friday was just terrible...
