Hello Hello

Hi all,

My father was recently diagnosed with ADD. Also found out that when I was little my parents were encouraged to get me evaluated for AD/HD by my teachers, but declined to do so because they didn't want me to be treated differently. I'm fairly certain that I have ADD and have come here mostly in search of ways to cope, get evaluated without being pressured into taking medication and to maybe make a couple of friends along the way!

A little big about me: I'm 28, I live in New York, but I'm from rural New Jersey, just outside of Philly. I work as an architect in Brooklyn, I have a boyfriend of two years, and a recently adopted cat named Bagheera (bonus points if you can guess what he looks like).

For those of you interested in broader topics of psychology and personality types, I'm also an INTJ.

Cheers!
