Through the years I've had many problems that I can now relate to ADHD (I lose everything, it's awful to force myself to sit still, poor impulse control, RSD, etc) and I really want to seek a diagnosis, But I'm terrified to be told no, I dont have ADHD, I'm just bad at coping or lazy, and so on. I've tried to talk to my mom about it but she insists the problems I'm talking about are things everyone deals with, and nothing to make a fuzz about.
I'm rambling now but, what I mean to ask mainly is... what's the best step to seeking diagnosis? Any advice or stories you guys have to share, I would love to listen to
I hope I made sense! Thank you!
