Not really sure ... looking around > ***** In Belgium

Hi! I'm new here ... but I'm not really sure I belong here... I think I might have ADD. Is there a place in this forum where I could put my story and get some advice?

I'm 18years old from belgium ... I live for music. And I am a student in college at the moment ..

Don't know what else to say

Re: Not really sure ... looking around ...

Mostly rock music but I'm very open minded about it ... as long as it isn't shallow.

I see a therapist (for various mental problems) and I think he is going to say I have ADD... don't know why really. I've only recently started to read about ADD and it does describe me a bit ...

I'm very chaotic in my head... I think a lot of things at the same time. I get bored very easily and start daydreaming or zone out. I have trouble concentrating if something doesn't interest me (and I have very specific interest fields). If I have to study something then I'll be thinking about something completly different a few minutes later and then I have to bring back my attention to my work again ... and so on.

But I'm rather good at organising things... but then again only if it interests me and then I hyper focus on that one thing and make sure it is perfect in any way (I get really stressed if it isn't perfect).

At high school I could only study when there was pressure ... I always had good marks so nobody commented on it.

I have dealt with severe depression (mostly from past issues, but now I start to think it could be linked to me not fitting in in high school, being bored all the time, thinking too much, ...) also very prone to all sorts of self-destructive behaviour ... I'm a perfectionist and recently ahve been getting panick attacks...

Um ... that's a bit of a summary ... hope it makes sense ...

Re: Not really sure ... looking around ...

to be honest im nto really a pro on all this, but there are others on here who can really help you.
it kinda sounds like you have an OCD or Obsessive Compulsive Disorder maybe as well as ADHD but as i said i dotn really have any expertise.
when do you find out from your therapist what you have?
yeah i love music too. im more into reggae and rnb, used to be into hiphop but its kinda too gangsta. nah reggae's more my style.

Re: Not really sure ... looking around ...

I've seen lots of therapists but I've only been seen this one twice (tommorow again) so I have no idea if he gives diagnoses ... All my previous ones didn't want to give me one .. I don't know...

Reggea is cool

Re: Not really sure ... looking around ...

Um ... I don't know really... I guess my therapist knows a lot about ADD etc... He's really nice so maybe when I've seen him a bit more I'll ask about it ... but i thought I'd ask for some advice here in the meantime because it's all very confusing ...

Oh another thing ... I have incredible mood swings... they drive me crazy... I also make lists and write down things I have to do, to organize things in my head etc..

Re: Not really sure ... looking around ...

Welcome to ADDF and the chances of having ADHD when you think it's there, means you probably have ADHD. I also have bipolar disorder and have some hellish mood swings due to that, we have a "cycling team" here and we welcome others with mood issues as well. There is a lot of support on this site and If i haven't already said it enough... WELCOME!!!

Re: Not really sure ... looking around ...

Some interesting things in that link ... I do feel like a crazy person now though ... like everything is wrong with me or something.

But I'll stop moaning now Thanks for the warm welcome everyone!
