I have been seeing Therapists now for about 4 years now. I just changed Therapists last month over insurance issues. Initially I was not going to go to a new one because I felt that therapy was not helping. I found a new one and had my 2nd visit last night. About 3/4 of the way through the session she wanted to know if anyone, anytime in my entire life told me that I have ADD. I said no. She gave me some information and I did some research when I got home. The information that I found actually brought me to tears. I am 47 years old and always thought that I was some sort of big loser because of the things I have done mostly to myself. When I read all of the signs of ADD I was just overwhelmed by the fact that I was reading about myself. With the exception of 1 or 2 signs, I have them all and I have had them all for all of my life and nobody recognized it. My Mom just said I was a "chatterbox" and "flighty" and "full of voom, vigor and vitality" and "A natural born entertainer" because I would not stop talking.
Right now I am not sure how I feel.
