ADH-ULCH

I have ADHD. I just need the diagnosis so that I can start functioning properly. I saw a documentary about an adult with ADD and every symptom was spot on with things that have to do with me. For the sake of taking something to my doctor I just filled this out and printed the results:

How often do you make careless mistakes when you have to work on a boring or difficult project?

PART A SCORE: 7

PART B SCORE: 8

If you have a score of 6 or more in one or both Parts (A and B), then your symptoms are highly suggestive for the diagnosis of ADHD and further evaluation is warranted. This score does not confirm a diagnosis of ADHD, which requires an evaluation to see if there is an alternative explanation or cause.

Additional Information

This is a screening examination for adult ADD. It is not a diagnostic test.

This is an 18-question symptom checklist adapted from the Adult ADHD Self-Report Scale (ASRS-v1.1), developed in conjunction with the World Health Organization and the Workgroup on Adult ADHD.

  1. Cool! I hope that you get the sense of peace that you need when you get this document to your doctor. I know it helps to have something to build on 🙂 Cool graphic as well , Sweet dreams, whenever u go to sleep!

  2. Ah, yes. Pretty sure I have ADD as well. Doesn’t matter how I am evaluated because the treatment for ADD typically consists of activating pharmaceuticals. In my experience, psychiatrists are not fans or proponents of taking a risk that a client may go hypo/manic. They seem far more likely to favor sedating, zombie-esque stabilizers, or antipsychotics.

    Best of luck to you though. I have read case studies of individuals who have attributed the demise of a wicked depressive state to the addition of Ritalin/Adderal.
