To have or not to have ADHD,
that is the question.

I’m Jacky, I’m 43 and was diagnosed over 21 years ago with Clinical Depression and severe anxiety. For the past year, I have come to understand that it is highly likely I have undiagnosed adult ADHD. It is highly likely that my ‘away with the fairies’ personality is not because my will is fundamentally flawed but due to genetics and brain chemistry.

I have asked to be assessed so I may better understand that I am indeed neuro divergent and not just the lazy waste of space I have always believed I am.

However, this process will likely take a further 2 years due to waiting lists to be seen. 2 more years of not knowing if I’m ‘allowed’ to even be who I actually am. And what if I don’t have ADHD and I AM simply unable to control myself?!
