Default ADHD diagnosis out of the blue...

Yes, I had severe behavior problems as a child, especially severe meltdowns, almost everyday!!! I was diagnosed ADHD back then, but of course it was really popular in the 90's....

Anyway therapists and psychiatrists told me my childhood behavior was in fact autism and now I also have Bipolar and GAD....

But my last talk with the doc was bizarre... His first question was asking me about my ADHD! I said I haven't been diagnosed with it in a long time... Then he told me to read about it and take online quizzes.... But it doesn't sound like I need meds... I mean if I have ADHD I don't think it's severe for sure... But this talk with the doc was bizarre and came out of left field... Quizzes I have took come back "moderate ADHD"
It's as simple as I love birds...

Default Re: ADHD diagnosis out of the blue...

It can be surprising to learn that you may have it, or to know that your symptoms are judged as more impairing than you would think. People with ADHD learn to cope with their symptoms and tend to assume that their struggles are just a part of who they are, not related to their diagnosis. It could be that you have had ADHD that has been untreated and led to significant challenges in the past. It's worth exploring more to find out if the diagnosis is accurate and if so what the treatment plan might be.
