Hi! Your site is VERY helpful. I just took the ADHD Assessment Test on your site, and got 57. I really do think I have it, since a lot of symptoms I read online match exactly to how I am.
I am a freshmen in college...I have ALWAYS had trouble staying focused, but didn't think much of it, Until now. I think its starting to get worse...It takes me hours and hours to do my homework or assignment..it takes me a while to understand something that any other person would understand right away. I spend sooo much time doing my assignments.homework, I don't really LEARN anything. I just do them, mindlessly.I am also constantly fidgeting, playing with my fingers, doodling in my notebook, or daydreaming...about all the stuff I have to do.
I'm not dumb or anything, I am in Calculus and this is my second time taking it, but it has not gotten any easier. Math is ALWAYS a struggle for me..so is science. I see a problem, get intimidated, skip it.
I had a meeting with my college counselor today, and I asked him about getting tested for ADD. He said he didn't think I had it because I seemed to listen to everything he said instead of jumping from topic to topic, but If I wanted to get tested, I can.
If you ask my mom, she'll agree..I talk A LOT for no reason, and when I talk, I'm not really conveying a message. I just talk. I'm always jumping from one task to another etc.
I don't know what to do..Should I move forward with getting tested?
