I think I might have adult ADHD

I think I might have adult ADHD and I took this quiz. My results are down below. I scored an 88. It turns out that anxiety and depression often accompnay ADHD and I have suffered from both. I am looking into it and it is very interesting.

Serious ADHD Likely!

I scored a 53. I have moderate ADHD. But seriously, I think most busy people would score kind of high.

I heard on the radio today that a recent study has found that when you don't get enough sleep, you are less able to pay attention and you have trouble processing information. I was shocked that they needed a study to tell us what millions of moms for millions of years have been living ;) So I get the difficulty staying focused.

If you don't mind me asking- you mentioned depression. How did you know?

I scored a 47 and I do think I have adult ADD. (I've thought I had it for quite some time. Don't worry, you have a lot on your plate. Maybe this summer you can look for ways to deal with it.

I have it. It's - rough. But, um, dare I say, also interesting?

I mean, you already know that if you have it. It's just so frustrating, what with the memory issues and always feeling like the guy (Guy!, uh, I forget his last name) in the movie Memento.

Anyway, wishing you luck on finding out and managing it. (I discovered mine partially as a result of having a child and realizing I could no longer manage my life the old way, and couldn't figure out how to organize myself for both of us *and* my partner to boot. It's been both a relief (to figure out what was plaguing me) and a misery (to recognize what has steered me off course so much in my life).

Hugs. Debbie
