Hey soo, I’ve never actually been diagnosed with ADHD, but I’m seriously starting to feel like it may be the dominant cause for a lot of my behavior/emotional problems? I’ve tried relating it to dissociation, but I don’t have blank spaces in my memory. It’s like a chronic daydreaming and separation from the present, often imaginary social scenarios that I live out and feel. I fixate on thought experiments and language, and on the difficulty of self expression. Almost all of my drawing/painting is repeating lines/patterns, I fidget with my hands when I’m thinking/processing.. If I try to read a book I go over the lines without internalizing what they say
Had a look at DSM 5 criteria, giving information on ADHD (professional checklist), it will also cover disassociation.
