I would like to know how do you get diagnosed with ADD/ADHD? When I was younder my attention span would drift, and I was even in RSP, which is a class to help kids with ADD/ADHD. Even though I was only in their for math, because I has difficult with that particular subject. I once heard my high school teacher mention to my mother "even though Becca has ADHD" . I even overheard my fith grade elementary teacher plead to my mother to get me on meds. At the time I had no idea what my fith grade teacher meant or my high school teacher. I tried to question my mother about it when I was younger about what kind of meds my fith grade teacher wanted her to put me on. My mother explained a little, but just said "that I don't need meds because I don't have ADD/ADHD". I sometimes find it difficult to pay attention in my community college classes and find it difficult to listen to people talk for too long. I also use to be quite forgetful of instructions my manager might give me or of something someone says. With my improved confidence my memory is getting a little better, but the forgetfulness is still their. I dont have full out mood swings, but I do feel frustrated and irritable sometimes. These do seem to be a few of the sighns of ADD/ADHD, so finding out how you get diagnosed with ADD/ ADHD would be a great help.

My goal was to live to retire and I guess having to take early retirement because of health reasons wasn't exactly the way I had planned things. I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
