Re: Do I have ADD or I am I just lazy/Anxiety or Aviodance

Exercise. It works wonders. Just force yourself to go for a walk. You don't have to talk to people, but physical activity is crucial for everyone's mental balance.
ADHD tends to bring friends to the party. Sometimes the friends can be there with no ADHD. Your psych doc might need to do more testing to make sure you actually have ADHD. My best friend and I are polar opposites... I have always had ADHD and he has always has Chronic Depression/Severe anxiety. I said that to say this. * We both have false positives for what the other has *

That being said, you should go to a diagnostic Phych(ologist/iatrist) to get a full regimen of tests run. My testing took 8 hours over three days, started with a very apparent IQ test and then went through hell and back for the rest of the time. If you do not have ADHD and you are medicated for it, you may see short term improvement in your school work; there's a reason ADHD meds are highly abused in colleges. Then again you may not receive any positive benefits.

Be honest and transparent with your tester. They need to know everything to get a full pi tyre before testing. Past drug abuse/spending issues/compulsions/6 foot stuffed voltron hanging from the ceiling fan... everything. They can determine what.matters, they get paid, and paid well, to filter details.

*anecdotal personal discovery warning*

I felt what most people call anxiety for the first time at age 37. That was 5 days after starting ADHD meds. Once I knew what it was I could find the source and then the anxiety went away. Btw, anxiety sucks. I think my best friend wanted to kill me when he realized that I had 37 years without it.

Sorry for what may be a wall. Posting from a phone, can only see 6 lines.
