Re: Could it be ADHD after all?

I graduated with a degree in elementary education in the early '90's (not so long ago) from one of the best teacher prep schools in my state and never learned about girls having ADHD or Inattentive ADD or Dyscalculia, which I was also diagnosed with when I was diagnosed with Inattentive ADD in 2010.

Even if you did present growing up but your teachers, parents and doctor aren't aware it exists or don't believe in it, especially if you did well academically, then nothing they saw would clue them in.

As someone said you are 2/2 as far as psychiatrists diagnosing it then the anti-depressants and mood stabilizers didn't work but the ADHD meds did.

Look at it like research. If it were put to the test: what does the evidence show?
What does the evidence show? Good question. I'm really not sure.

Maybe it is baby brain (or maybe just because I haven't done anything else in the last 18 months). I mean these days my brain is super muddled. I don't know if you guys have noticed but I think my posts have become even more rambling. I start a post, lose the thread halfway and am incapable of really making any point whatsoever. Lots of times I also fall asleep while posting. In addition, with the crazy stuff auto correction spits out I'm honestly amazing how anyone understands anything I write.
