Hi! Yes, this post is getting old but I’m glad you found it because there is a lot of pertinent information in it for you.
Getting a proper diagnosis usually takes a very long time. The most important thing is to NEVER give up. Believe in yourself, your capabilities, your future, your limitations as well. Is there some point to working twelve hour days when you can be brilliant in six?
Please read the non-Rx section of this forum. There is so much that you can do to improve your life without a diagnosis or meds (which may or may not work).
Next year, in June, I will have lived thirty-five years since official diagnosis. That’s half my life.
You CAN do this! And you will learn to accept yourself and you will learn to build upon what works best for YOU. One day at a time.
