I’m not diagnosed but I find it so hard to get things done. I get distracted when I’m about to note down what I need to do, then I would forget that I wanted to note down the to-do. Then it takes me forever to get to that to-do and when I finally decide to get to the to-do, I get distracted all the time and potentially forget about it again. Sometimes caffeine can help with deadline approaching but at other times it just makes me hyper but not focused. I found my life stagnant for years. Advice?

Try a psychiatrist or clinical psychologist and tell them you want to look into ADHD. Ideally you’ll find someone who can do a battery of cognitive tests, which is the closest you can get to being “tested” for it.

They can also help figure out if something else with similar symptoms could be going on.

Have you tried seeing a psychiatrist?

likehelpful

Yes I would def recommend seeing a psychiatrist. They can assess you and give you the proper diagnoses. Meds will help.

Get a formal ADHD assessment. Post your jurisdiction and others may be able to suggest the correct approach and also may know what works within your coverage at Accenture or where to go to clarify that.

Thanks a lot

If your doc isn't taking you seriously, you need to find one who will. Tinnitus and insomnia are no joke, and I wouldn't be surprised if they're making your focus issues even worse.

I also have tinnitus, insomnia and procrastination. I brought up these separately in different conversations with my doctor but I don’t think she took them seriously. I haven’t been able to find a doctor that actually cares for me.

I went through this myself. I ended up changing my doctor who was much more understanding. I saw a therapist who gave me the assessment which I shared it with my doctor. M on meds now for the past month or so and it has been life changing. Wish I had taken this step a couple of years ago.

I started after the annual revenue goal had been set, and it’s literally a 45% increase with no additional advertising budget, no new resources or automation, no new products or launches…nothing…and the industry is seeing sharp declines.

Hey all, I’m in the midst of IVF stims and last week a woman came to morning monitoring with her two small children under 3 yo. I figured this woman had a last minute emergency lapse in childcare and that’s why she brought the kids that time as a one off. This morning at monitoring, here she is again with the kids in the waiting room. I wanted to give her the benefit of the doubt the first time, but this time I’m feeling like it really is inconsiderate. Am I being too sensitive?
