Does anyone else have ADHD? I was placed in special behavior classes and they traumatized me pretty bad. Eventually I got out and I also stopped taking my medicine. I put myself through ten years of hell. I won't go into details but after I started on my Focalin I've been doing a lot better. I've been learning about executive dysfunction on facebook and have made some friends. I don't meet a lot of people who talk about having similar childhood experiences. People either have a single diagnosis, or they're diagnosed with something else, or they weren't diagnosed until they were adults. And I really don't meet many people from Tennessee online, and none from my area.
I came up with this topic based of off someone's post. I thought it would be interesting to see where those on the spectrum fall in the ADHD scale. This could give us an idea of how much both conditions could overlap or if they don't. Maybe some of us just have ADHD in addition to ASD or maybe some of us don't. I think if a lot of us fit the ADHD criteria, it could mean that ASD and ADHD overlap a lot in the symptoms. If only some of us fit the ADHD criteria, it could mean we had ADHD in addition to ASD. Take these tests to see where you fall in the ADHD scale: https://psychcentral.com/quizzes/adhd-quiz/ https://www.additudemag.com/adhd-symptoms-test-adults/ http://totallyadd.com/do-i-have-add/ And post your results here if you'd like. I give credit to the other members who found these tests.
