Do you think you may have ADHD?
We created a free test based on the official ADHD symptoms described in the DSM-V to give you a sense of how likely you are to be ADHD, and what type of ADHD (Hyperactive-Impulsive, Inattentive or Combined).
Approximately 8 million adults in the United States are affected by ADHD. ADHD does not affect just children.
Symptoms of adult ADHD can be misconstrued as those associated with depression, anxiety, or bipolar disorder.
This is due to a lack of understanding of ADHD, costly treatment expenses not always covered by insurance, and the stigma that ADD/ADHD still carries in some areas.

I struggled with my classes and suffered from anxiety because of it
I have been someone that can't pay attention for too long, I forget things more often than other people, I have abyssmal handwriting, and oftenly I can't sit still, my 3rd grade homeroom teacher told my parents to try consultate with a psychologist. Tried to ask my parents what the diagnosis was and well my parents forgot what the diagnosis was as it was a reaaally long time ago. Come the present day when I'm in uni now, I still have the same problems so I decided to go to a psychiatrist this time, and yeah I got an exact answer, that being ADHD
I feel like all of my life I had been compensating for the little things that seemed to make my life harder and no one else's. When Covid-19 hit, I didn't realize just how much my brain needed that structure. As I sat at home with my family and child, I noticed (what I know now were ADHD/Autism symptoms) how much I would spend on pointless items, or how much I would over/mindlessly eat. I started to see how all of the things I was doing, were not "normal" because I would watch my family not struggle with the same things. It's as if I never saw those things until I had no choice but to see them. All of the projects that were halfway started but never finished, the laundry basket full of clean clothes that I just could NOT make myself fold. Being that I am currently obtaining my Master's in Psychology, I had some background knowledge of ADHD and what it looks like, but I thought "No, that's not me. Someone would have known or told me". But the more I looked into it and really studied it, I knew I had to have it.
I thought I was heading toward burning out from the pressure at work. ADHD had always been at the back of my mind since being mentioned by a manager I worked with 9 years ago. It had been dismissed by my psychiatrist back then, who was treating me for depression. I did my research, but remained skeptical. Eventually I just made an appointment because I was heading towards a crash and burn situation.
I had been struggling with my mental health for years and despite being on medication it was not helping in the right way. I was finding myself spending every ounce of energy trying to function “normally”. After struggling in university, I decided to look into whether anything else was going on and eventually thought it could be ADHD.
I was always leaving school projects to the last minute (even in the subjects I enjoyed) and sometimes refuse to do projects altogether in the subjects I hated, I did not like homework, I would forget things constantly like important school implements and conversations I'd had the previous day, I wouldn't listen in class and was always staring out the window or drawing in my empty notebooks.
I was doing my Master’s thesis when I realized I have been doing it non-stop for 8 hours straight without eating. Then I realized throughout the years this ‘ability’ to have great focus ‘out of the blue’ (or near a deadline) is the only reason I’ve managed to pull through university. I couldn’t pay attention in class so this is my only resort. But I knew it wasn’t healthy and I read more about it and found the term hyperfocus. Which led to ADHD. Before I know it I was obsessed with researching about ADHD and decided that it was only right to get a diagnosis.
I have always loved to make others laugh… but back then I would do impulsive things to get people to smile or giggle. I would instantly feel regretful and guilty afterwards.
