Hello from Arizona!

Hi everyone! I am a 21-year-old student nurse in Arizona. I have struggled with ADHD symptoms since I was a kid, but my parents chose not to get me tested for it when I was younger. (I have mixed feelings about that.) They are very supportive now, though.

Anyway, school has gotten progressively more difficult for me over the years, and now I am realizing that I may not be able to get through nursing school without medication and other help. Focus is a real issue for me.

So I am not actually diagnosed yet, but I am seeking a diagnosis...I hope it's still ok for me to post here. I am eager to find out more so that I can figure out better ways for me to handle school and work, and maybe feel like I am "on top of things" for the first time in my life, haha.

Welcome to ADDF!

I think there are a few nurses around here.

We definitely welcome people at all stages of the process of diagnosis -- even if it turns out to be something else!

Re: Hello from Arizona!

Yeah I didn't get treated when younger either which would have been nice.
