I'm Finally Going (Anxiety)

For some reason I feel out of place talking here, because the site IS about ADD. But I need to get this all out. I've finally found a counselor who I can go to, and it won't cost a arm and a leg. Now if I can just get myself to make that appointment, we'll be all set. I'm finally going, i'm finally going to do it. I have been thinking, and after reading alot of this site, I was thinking maybe I do have some symptoms of ADD. But then again it could be the hypocondriac in me and i'm making myself believe I do. I never did well in school, mainly because I couldn't concentrate and it was very boring to me. I guess my doctor will finally tell me whats wrong with me and I can get on the fast track to being well.

Good for you!! Let us know how things go for you, and...I'm glad you posted here. Have you already been diagnosed with anxiety, or are you just feeling anxiety from the prospect of getting diagnosed?

I haven't been officially diagnosed, that's why I am going. But I KNOW I have it. I don't need a doctor to tell me that. I'm going to make a appointment today, and i'll let you guys know how it goes. I've been reading alot about medications also, and I think i'm going to just try counseling first. Who knows, maybe that will work.
