I recently read the best article on ADD, and misdiagnosis of it.
Basically it addressed all the symptoms, issues and problems I have been complaining to my doctors about for years. Not one doctor but many, all of them failed to diagnose me, until I found one that actually listened.
For years, I have complained about the inability to fall and stay asleep. I complained about anxiety, depressive feelings, mood swings, intensity of my feelings, sensitivity to noise and smell, to name a few.
Turns out all of these are tell tale signs of ADD, but can easily be misdiagnosed, as it was with me.
Doctors, friends and family all blew me off, saying I was depressed, anxious or a “drama queen”. I could not make sense of what I felt, thought and my short comings.
As it turns out there is also a lot to be thankful for, which I will talk about in a follow up blog.
♓️Thankful, Grateful & Blessed!
