It’s not the people that actually come out and say it, it’s the people that get the slightly glazed “I’m being too polite to mention that I think ADD is a made up excuse” look.
And I don’t understand how I can explain this shit to someone else when it doesn’t make sense to me, all I need to do is to do the thing I’m not doing, how hard can that be? :mad:. It still never feels to me like it will be hard, why would it, I just need to do it?, it’s just it never ends up getting done.
And had great fun with the first doctor, “I don’t think you could be doing a PhD if you have ADD” What? the PhD I’ve just told you has taken six years and I’m struggling with appeals on the viva right now, that PhD?. “We don’t recognise adult ADD as a condition in the UK” (I had to go back home to my family GP and take a copy of the NICE guidance)
And still not getting the medication right, but when it works it really works, and oh my god other people can concentrate like this all their damn lives. Going to pharmacists for new raised dose tomorrow, so fingers crossed.
The thing that I really hate though, is the never ever being proud of anything that you do, because you always always know you could have done better.
