So I have started a job a few months ago which is my dream job. I began to struggle with organisation and keeping up with tasks. I then got a diagnosis for dyslexia. But I know I’m my heart that this is far more than dyslexia. I think I may have ADHD because I’m unable to concentrate I zone out so much, always daydreaming, low self esteem, always in edge and fidgety, issues with consistency, major procrastination issues, poor time management and disorganisation. It’s really impacting my daily life. I’m 24
It does sound like you need to get tested… Did they test for it with the dyslexia? I’m surprised that they didn’t…. You sound bright and resourceful; this is just the next piece of the puzzle. Please keep us posted
Hi No they didn’t test me for it. I just had a psychological assessment for dyslexia Thank you I think I will definitely need to have an adhd assessment. I really need answers.
Oh, I got my diagnose rather late for adhd rather late in my life. When I was already at the uni. But I can tell you one thing. You ever wondered why you act differently, think differently, behave differently and then you have no professionals or people in the same situation to talk to? Well, when I took my diagnosis it all started to change. I learned new abilities to access my special potential and to control my rather not so good things that come with adhd. Of course I take some medication, but I can tell you with physical and mental exercise you can more or less live relatively drug free and normal. However, I am not you and all diagnoses for adhd are different. You can’t put adhd into a cookie jar or frame it…so instead accept it, embrace it and be the best version of what you can be every day. Stay curious and good luck with all!
