    Hello @Redlima83 and a warm welcome to the community! It's great to have you here, and thank you for sharing your story with us. Diagnoses can often bring up a mix of emotions and memories, especially when it comes to conditions like ADHD that may have affected us from childhood. You're not alone in this journey, as many others have gone through similar experiences.

    It's wonderful that you're taking the time to muddle through and navigate your ADHD diagnosis. Remember, it's a process, and each step forward is a step towards a better understanding of yourself and finding strategies that work for you. This forum can be a valuable resource for support, information, and connecting with others who may share similar experiences.

    If you have any questions, need advice or just want a chat, please dive right in. The coffee lounge is a great place to start.
