:confused:Hello, I am reading some of these posts and it sounds like me! I sometimes wonder if ADD is my problem? I have struggled with anxiety/depression for a while, at least that is what I think it is. I have been on every anti-depressant there is..and still feel blah! I do know I have some OCD issues...but one of my main problems is I just cannot seem to concentrate.
I have a good job, have had it for 14 years, but I spend most of my day surfing the net instead of doing my work. I used to be able to multi-task, but now I find myself very disorganized etc. Also, when having conversations or in meetings, even phone calls....my mind will wonder and I will be thinking of something totally off subject.
Does this sound like ADD?
Also, how do you get diagnosed? Is there a certain test? I think it is crazy when you go to DR's and they have told me I have anxiety, depression, OCD etc....but there is never no testing????? How do you really know what you have or don't have?????
Also, forgot to mention that another one of my problems is no energy and I just do not get excited about much.....not sure what all the symptoms of ADD are.
there sort of is a test. i went to a psychologist to have psych testing done. my regular doctor all ready knew i had it, just wanted to see what else i had. they test your concentration and make you fill out a questionaire on yourself. atleast that's what mine did. took about 2 hours.
I took a test but I think most Dr's go by your symptoms, which can be confused with other mental problems. You sound just like me and I know I'm ADD and taking meds for it! LOL. No chance of menopause or peri meno? I think that's when I sort of changed and lost interest in things, no energy, never excited about things anymore, had things to do but rather do nothing. Don't feel like antidepressants helped anymore either.
