…after a while ..I’m writing again..but this time a bit casual and free style 🙂 never wrote this way ….
Its quiet a while that I,m trying to figure out what is it and is it really true and real or is it just me who feels a certain way and their is no reality towards all this scenario… so here is my story:
Few years back ..probably 5 yrs, I was a normal girl. Never noticed any symptoms, nothing was wrong or unusual, but somewhere inside I knew there was something different!. Since my child hood I was bit impulsive and hyperactive. I had problems with sitting still and focusing on my studies. I was always impulsive. I had problem of minor procrastination as well. But normally this is the case with many of us in childhood mostly boys.
My parents thought since I was a single child so that was probably lack of competition or may be lack of confidence etc that’s leading me towards such sort of behaviour – I was good at studies but then gradually lost interest and could not focus 100%
When I started University, somewhere inside my mind I knew I was different. (Either m mad/silly/nonsense or either the entire world) this thought has always nagged me till I got the answer.
Few years after University and getting married…it was still same and in past few years it has increased dramatically!!!
There were so many things diagnosed by doctors. The big ones were (Bipolar, Major depression, Anxiety, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder). Well I have anxiety(GAD) and Panic Attacks history but still I never got convinced for Bipolar, depression and PTSD. Still I was not satisfied until few days back I got the real answer – no one ever told me told—i.e Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)
