who is me...

Hello,

I am obviously a new user here.. but I will try to give a bit of my story.. as an intro.

I am what I would consider a typical male, love watching sports, even participating though my skillset does equal what I would like it to be.

I have not been officially diagnosed with ADHD, though my GP is very sure of it; he doesn't want to make an official diagnosis, he wanted to refer me to a specialist.

Unfortunately for me - I have no benefits and I can't quite get the $700 required for a diagnosis.

So here I sit, looking not so much for a diagnosis as I (and confirmed by others) exibit pretty much all what the internet calls symptoms.

I am here looking for ways others deal with this, in hopes to be able to cope with it a bit better.

I find it challenging going through this as an adult. I work in computers and have found ways to stay focused at work due to sheer interest.

After doing more research, a lot of it reading stories here, I can think back to my childhood and realize a diagnosis is probably long overdue.

I enjoy cars (well automobiles, love trucks too), photography, computers, coffee, and numerous other beverages.

Other than being a smoker I have no major addictions, I quit smoking for 8 years then went back after getting laid off from a job.. I wish I hadn't but here we are.

I drive a Mustang GT, and love it.. and shockingly I actually drive it pretty respectfully...

Not sure what else to say... other than Hello! and I am looking forward to learning more..

Oh, I was officially diagnoised with General Anxiety Disorder and Severe Depression (they believe this is situational, which I will not mention as yet).

Hope everyone is doing well.. and looking forward to talking more.

Welcome to ADDF!

From your username, can I assume you're a hobby photographer? If so, what kinds of photography do you do?

Re: who is me...

Thank you!

I started with some scenic photography @ the family cottage.

I have done some city photography - buildings, grafitti, and I have taken shots of 1 model.

I *really* like model photography but need to make time to rent studio space to do it right.. and of course find models.

I am not a dirty guy needing to only shoot women (though I do enjoy shooting women I find they are more receptive to having their photo taken).

Do you shoot?
