    I’ve been diagnosed with inattention-dominant ADHD, any questions? / #AMA #ADHD

    I've been diagnosed with inattention-dominant ADHD, any questions? 
    
    
    
    
    Any questions? I thought it was a developmental disorder when I would slip up. 
    
    
    
    
    I wish I could just die, but I hate the pain... 
    I wish time would go by twice as fast. 
    
    
    
    
    
    My parents don't want to admit I'm developmentally disabled and I can't talk to anyone about it. 
    I'm just pent up. 
    
    
    
    
    How old are you? 
    
    
    
    
    >> 
    Twenty-one. 
    I was actually diagnosed when I was 20. 
    
    
    
    
    >> 
    You didn't find out until much later, did you? 
    Didn't you have symptoms from when you were much younger? 
    Or do you have some mild symptoms that are the same as the average person? 
    
    
    
    
    >> 
    I was treated as a natural freak. 
    Once I got a phone call while I was cooking, and I forgot that I was cooking during that time and made a fuss. 
    That was the extent of my mistakes. 
    
    When I started working part-time, I despaired of my inability to process things, so I went to see a psychiatrist, and here I am. 
    
    
    
    
    >> 
    What kind of test is used to find out? 
    Do you just answer questions verbally? Do they do a brain scan or something? 
    
    
    
    
    >> 
    I called the support center and they referred me to a pediatrician who also sees adults. 
    I talked to them for a while, and they interviewed the parents and told me on the spot that I had ADHD. 
    
    I have an acquaintance who was also diagnosed with ADHD in adulthood, and she had to undergo intelligence tests, psychological tests, EEG tests, and many other tests. 
    
    
    
    
    >> 
    I guess it's surprising how easy it is to be diagnosed... 
    Thanks. 
    
    
    
    
    What exactly are the symptoms? 
    
    
    
    
    >> 
    I don't know if this is misleading, but it's similar to the early symptoms of dementia. 
    
    
    
    
    I've heard that there is a pattern of it happening in adulthood. 
    
    
    
    
    >> 
    I've never heard of that. 
    Developmental disabilities come from a brain abnormality at birth. 
    It's something else that comes later in life. 
    
    But it seems that in women, inattentive-dominant type is more common than impulsive-dominant type. 
    I've heard that many of these problems surface in adulthood. 
    
    
    
    
    I'm starting to think I'm one of them. 
    I'm sure you can't get disability allowance for this kind of thing, though, right?

    I heard it's not impossible to get it, but the screening process is very strict and the guarantee is only a drop in the bucket. 
    I've heard that the screening process is very strict and the guarantee is only a drop in the bucket. 
    I don't know much about that. 
    
    
    
    
    I was diagnosed with the exact same disease. 
    Now I'm in charge of babysitting those kids. 
    
    
    
    
    >> 
    When I think back to my own childhood, it was so bad that I wonder how my parents didn't raise their hands. 
    
    
    
    
    >> 
    Seriously. 
    I guess it's only a loss if you're certified. 
    
    
    
    
    >> 
    You'll get meds! 
    But it's not a cure, you have to take it for the rest of your life, and it has its own set of side effects. 
    
    
    
    
    >> 
    I know what you mean. I want to kill myself in the past. 
    
    I was cuckolded because the meds didn't work for me and they said it wasn't covered by insurance. 
    
    
    
    
    >> 
    I think Concerta is covered by insurance now... but I didn't get it. 
    If you get medical care to support your independence, you only have to pay 10% of the cost. 
    
    
    
    
    >> 
    I didn't know that. 
    I was diagnosed at 14, but it wasn't so much that I had the disease. 
    I was apologized many times by my parents, "I'm sorry, I wish I could have recognized it a little earlier. 
    I wish I had known about it earlier. 
    It seems that my parents disciplined me quite violently when I was a little girl. I don't remember. 
    
    
    
    
    A pattern of retarded incompetence. 
    What are you going to do in the future? 
    
    
    
    
    If I had been diagnosed with a developmental disorder as a child, it would be different, but as an adult, it's not good enough. 
    
    
    
    
    I don't know if I should see a psychiatrist or a psychologist for this. 
    
    
    
    
    >> 
    I went to a psychiatrist. 
    
    
    
    
    >> 
    In Japan, there are not many doctors who can diagnose ADHD in adults. 
    You should consult a local developmental disability support center and ask for a referral to a hospital. 
    
    
    
    
    Anyway, I can only think of one thing in my head, and I can't process things at the same time. 
    
    Because of this, he has a strange prioritization of things. 
    You'll tend to be seen as a procrastinator or a lazy person who doesn't clean up well or something like that. 
    
    
    
    
    In short, you're a certified idiot. 
    
    
    
    
    Well, in the extreme, yes. 
    
    
    
    
    It's not even an extreme, it's a definite fact. 
    
    
    
    
    Well, yes... 
    In my case, my IQ is well below average, bordering between normal and mentally handicapped. 
    But that doesn't mean I can't think about anything. 
    
    
    
    
    Some people seem to be doing better than others. 
    The boy I'm watching memorized all the furniture and the order of the books after one visit to my house. 
    
    
    
    
    >> 
    That's savant. 
    
    
    
    
    >> 
    It was a little bit like Ataru. 
    
    
    
    
    Yeah, right. 
    I'm also less capable, but there's nothing inherently intellectually disabling about ADHD. 
    Some people are doctors with ADHD... 
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    Just a classification checklist 
    
    
    
    
    I've been suspecting lately that I have a developmental disorder, what should I do? 
    
    
    
    
    >> 
    Why do you think you have a developmental disability? 
    What exactly are you having trouble with? 
    What was your childhood like? 
    The doctor will ask you these questions in detail, so I think it's a good idea to summarize them in your own mind. 
    
    Understanding your own characteristics is the best way to avoid falling down. 
    I know it's not easy, but it's the only way.

    In that case, find a clinic to get diagnosed. 
    Agonizing at home won't give you the answers. 
    I had to look online because there are not many clinics that diagnose adult developmental disorders. 
    
    
    
    
    In my case... 
    I make the same mistakes over and over again, and no matter how much attention I give them, they still make mistakes. 
    My memory is extremely weak. 
    Confused when given multiple instructions at the same time. 
    I can't clean up, and even when I do, it's a mess soon after. 
    He often makes mistakes. 
    Clumsy with their hands. 
    He is not good at spatial cognition. 
    He acts impulsively, and when he thinks of one thing, it is the only thing he can think of. 
    They act impulsively and can only think of one thing at a time. 
    They are prone to procrastination, no matter how detrimental it may be to them. 
    He has a strange sense of time. 
    He says whatever he thinks is right. 
    Frequently loses things 
    He is prone to addictions. 
    He often loses things. 
    
    I'm not sure if it's a joke or not. 
    
    
    
    
    >>I'm not sure if it was a developmental disorder or not. 
    I have a developmental disability... 
    
    
    
    
    >> 
    Have you had similar symptoms since you were a child? 
    Or have you been unable to do so since you got older? 
    
    
    
    
    I've been using my brain poorly for years and my brain isn't working properly. 
    A hard blow to the head could cause a condition similar to this. 
    
    
    
    
    My brother also seems to have ADHD, but when I go to my parents, they don't understand it's just your imagination.
