Adult ADD

Hello all! I am ecstatic to find this group! I am a 34 yr old wife and mother to a very energetic, curious, silly 6 yr old boy. His kindergarten teacher had major concerns with his ability to stay focused on the task at hand and complete his work. I started looking into signs of ADHD, just because there are so many other things he has that led me in that direction. Thankfully, his pediatrician is leaning more toward normal 6 yr old boy.

 However, in the process of researching, low and behold I stumble across the sentence that has changed everything. Many parents discover they have ADD when their kids get diagnosed. So I started looking into adult ADD. My jaw hit the floor! For 34 years, I have struggled with so many issues, and just thought it was me. Most people don't want to be labeled with a disorder. I felt like laughing. THis huge weight had been lifted off my chest. It's such a relief to know that I am not the only one who struggles! I was only diagnosed a couple months ago, and we are still trying to tweak my meds. But knowing is half the battle.
