I'm in my 40s and recieved a diagnosis of ADD yesterday. It seems so many others in here suspected it, but I'm floored, in denial, angry and just confused. I don't understand these emotions because out of all of my mental health issues, it seems this one wouldn't be considered that earth shattering. My reaction to CPTSD, bipolar II, and anxiety... "yup those are fine and wow so happy to finally get treatment". My reaction to this..."how...no, I can't be." My family isn't surprised.
Has anyone else experienced this type of personal reaction?
