Interesting. Today I was informed by the school psychiatrist that she thought I was showing clear signs of Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder. After stabilizing the depression over the past few months, she did something no mental health worker had done in over 25 years of care by various mental health systems: She asked to see all my report cards, going back to Kindergarten. I provided them.

Bingo.

All the evidence was there. Notes from teachers, inability to get along with peers, inability to finish tasks, low self-esteem...

I was skeptical, but then I read the symptoms, and it was like reading a textbook about me, especially Adult ADHD predominantly inattentive type.

I learned a new word today: Hyperfocus. Is that what it's called.

It explains a lot.

Still gotta find a job, tho.
