Smile The Quest Begins... (Colorado)

Hello all --

While trying for the upteenth time to get my scattered life more organized, I found some links that led me to look into undiagnosed ADHD. I'd never considered this as a possibility before, as I grew up in the 80s and only had a rough preconception of what that meant. (One of my closest friends was labeled "hyperactive" and was on medication, whereas I was considerably calmer on the outside but was always hyperactive on the INSIDE; i.e., in my mind.)

While I realize that the diagnosis process can be fraught with problems, I'm hoping to get up the nerve to get properly evaluated so I can figure out some better coping mechanisms besides anxiety-induced procrastination, hyper-perfectionism, and giving in to fascinating deep-dive research projects that can railroad even the most basic tasks.

Looking forward to learning from everyone here,

J

....So it looks like I might've been overlooking the PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder) diagnosis I received 16 years ago, which might've been causing many of my ADHD-like symptoms to manifest.

Thanks to everyone who's been helping me sort this out in the adult diagnosis thread. This is a great place.
