Finally registered. Procrastination waning, only took 15 months.

Hi, I'm 37, male, and was tested for/diagnosed with moderate/severe adult ADHD in Oct 2016.

I have about a billion hobbies/interests. Heavy Woodworking/processing, light metalworkibg/welding, video games, movies, Electronics (audio), snowboarding, mountain biking, target shooting/making ammunition, getting my jeep absolutely nasty. And stopping now, the list wont end... I like to make things, perfect...perfectly imperfect... oh no... here we go. problem #27635.

Ok. I'll get this disclaimer posted here. I, very rarely, mean offense. I am sometimes quite direct/short/blunt. Other times i cant get a two sentences tied together to make a 7. I really truly appreciate direct communication.

If you leave it to me to guess at meaning or infer; I might read the same thing three different ways, 30 minutes apart. If I am offensive, please tell me: I do not wish to be.
If I seem abrasive to you, please send me a PM to let me know exactly why you see it that way. I am working on learning some social skills that I never knew existed. I've only had a year of experience with some things. And yes I felt quite idiotic when, at 37, I started noticing new social cues and asking people what they meant.

Hello! Sounds like you'll fit right in around here.

Re: Finally registered. Procrastination waning, only took 15 months.

Welcome! I too was diagnosed at 37 years old, in October 2015. So I absolutely get where you're coming from. It hasn't even been 3 years yet, and I have learned so much about myself, my brain, my personality, and my coping mechanisms, that it's almost like I am a new person these days. It's an ongoing quest though, there is so much to learn, so much to experience, so much to figure out. You definitely come to the right place, one of the most amazing things about this forum is that you really are dealing with people who share a common situation with you and our are most of the time much more understanding than the average people you meet in everyday life.

Read up, study up, and don't be afraid to ask questions. We're all in this together, and from what I've seen at least, we all want to do what we can to help each other while in turn helping ourselves to better navigate the world of attention deficit disorder.
