Re: How many of you have been diagnosed with ADHD

I've often wondered if I have ADD. I notice especially when I'm reading. Who else has this problem:

You'll be reading, but then your mind inadvertenly wanders and you discover you're thinking about other things while your eyes continue to follow the words. Then you snap out of it, and have to restart the sentence or paragraph. Anybody else experience that?

Sorry, would have responded sooner but had to reread the paragraph several times.

No. This has never happened to me.

Sure I've had that, but it's usually when I'm just bored or not focused on what I'm reading.

Almost always, unless I'm really interested in what I'm reading. This especially happens if I'm reading off a computer screen, so I usually have to print out long work emails to be able to follow them more closely.

Well don't tell that to your doctor or he will pump you full of ADD meds. Then you will be walking around in a daze with slobber coming from your mouth.

That used to happen to me all the damn time when I was a kid in school, even high school. Whenever I was reading something I was uninterested in, this happened.

Now as an adult I tend to read things I'm interested in - I like my job so even work-related stuff holds my attention. And now it doesn't happen so much. But still, I think it's totally normal.

ADD is much more severe, to the point where you often have trouble sitting through an entire movie, even if it's a movie most would agree is riveting.

Without getting into too much detail. I underwent some tests, because I had some symptoms that would warrant it, a couple of weeks ago for a brain tumor. And the neurologist was like "While we wait for the tests next week why don't you try these pills and see if you feel better?" And these were potent anti-psychotics he was prescribing, with some intense side effects. I was pretty surprised how cavalier he was prescribing such a strong medicine, especially when he wasn't even sure if it would help me. No tumor by the way.

Re: How many of you have been diagnosed with ADHD

a) Glad to hear no tumor.

b) After even a brief conversation with you, it's pretty obvious that "potent anti-psychotics" are really something you should take as part of your regular diet.

Don't worry so much! Here, take some Soma.

I would like to echo both of these sentiments. More on the first, but the second seems reasonably thought out also.
