hi there, have been getting fed up with never being able to complete anything, read up on ADD and i have nearly all symptoms and have done for years, i have an appointment booked for tuesday to speak to doctor. Heres some things i do every day *say i'm going to excercise, diet, clean and dont do it *overeat constantly *forget things i was supposed to do *speak over my husband/kids or cut in *laze about a lot *write lists of what i'm going to do but rarely do it *easily distracted *cant listen to people for very long if subject is boring me *start doing something then leave it halfway through *get obsessed with tv series or book and have to watch/read in one go

sorry so long, what do yous all think? xx

If the symptoms appeared recently it may be depression instead.

Do you have anyone around that knew you as a child?

adhd symptoms must have been present in childhood for it to be considered adhd.

Dont think I was as forgetful as a child, I, ll speak to my mum. My head just feels so overactive all the time, was just hoping to find an answer, I have been depressed last year but came off the medication as I didnt want to be reliant on them, hopefully gp can tell, thanks for your help xx
