I finally got my results back from my evaluation and it was determined I didn’t meet the criteria for a diagnosis. Apparently having good grades while growing up is not compatible with ADHD? I’m confused. I sat through a whole-day interview to be reduced to my academic performance? Do these people realize how much I have to go through to survive a semester and appear ‘functional’? I’ve had to drop out of college three times, and I’m still not finished. It’s taken me a literal decade to get even remotely close to acquiring a degree. Back in the day, school was easy for me. I’m also fortunate that I test well, otherwise, I don’t think I would have made it through with honors, if at all.
I’m just so frustrated. I feel like I wasn’t listened to at all. I have a laundry list of textbook ADHD symptoms, but hey, my GPA is looking pretty nice, I guess. I already doubt myself enough that this is all in my head and I’m looking for an excuse to continue being a human disaster, and having a professional completely dismiss me doesn’t help at all.
I just needed to get this off my chest. This fucking hurts.
