My doctor would like for me to get tested for ADHD again as my last test was a while ago. That test was done in my twenties, does Attention Deficit Disorder really change that much after you reach adulthood?
My primary concern is that throughout my childhood I was tested for just about every single learning disability and cognitive issues imaginable - except for ADHD. I tested positive for several cognitive and learning disabilities but later I would test out of these issues when my attention returned.
Furthermore I have tested at the average level for cognitive tests and some medical professional insist this means I do not need ADHD medication. When they test me with Ritalin, my cognitive tests are above normal. Shouldn't the test be if the medication helps significantly or not?
Just don't know why it is so hard to get the medication that seems to be working and I am so tired of fighting against doctors, pharmacies, and others who refuse to follow the science and research on ADHD. Frustrated
