When you’ve got diagnosed?

How and when did you’ve got the diagnose for your ADHD superpowers? Will post my story later!

Currently in the process of testing/diagnostics. Since I spiraled down into a burnout 1,5 years ago I can't help but notice how sensitive I am to input, how tiresome people are (usually, sorry :') ) and how much energy it costs to regulate daily life and even myself. I suspect there might be some neurospicyness in there - hence I asked for diagnostics myself, because I want to make sure that the burnout and depression arenot caused by said possible spicyness... And if it does, then I'll have access to tools and perhaps meds that will help me manage and return to "normal life", whatever that might be for me. Although. Diagnostics really suck. Even if turns out I don't have ADHD the endless questionnaires make me feel like there's something wrong anyway :')

ADHD for me never crossed my mind until recently and I’m 40 now. As a child, I never seem to have the typical signs it seemed that would cause my parents or doctors or teachers to ever bring it up. I was always on the quieter side & side pretty well in school. It wasn’t until recently I learned how differently adhd shows up in girls/females & even adults vs children which has led me to believe that I may have it & my counselor seems to agree. I finally see a psychiatrist again in about 2 weeks so I’m praying that she’ll hear me out & be able to give me something to help me out with that which may also then help with my anxiety & depression then some more as well.

Do you think those diagnosed as a child should be re-evaluated? I think mine might be different now but I think I still have ADHD

I was diagnosed when I was 11 back in 2008. But I never got treated for it really until i was 26. I just turned 27 last month. Every doctor wanted to treat my anxiety & depression but my adhd was just like.. it showed up and I was diagnosed but that was all I heard about it.
