Bees i am really worried.
Over the last year or so, my ability to concentrate and focus has taken a nose dive. And it’s gotten worse over the last few months.
I used to be able to learn really quickly in school and when training at a new job. And I could multi-task without making mistakes or losing focus.
And in my spare time, I could read or write for hours just being “in the zone.”
But now I am all over the place.
At the last few jobs I’ve had, learning has been AWFUL. SO hard. It’s embarassing. And recently I’ve made a lot of mistakes that caused some issues and that’s obviously embarassing and worrisome.
And even when it comes to my hobbies (like reading) I can’t even concentrate on that. I’ll turn 5 pages and realize I haven’t absorbed anything. And writing? Forget it. I can’t concentrate. I can’t string sentences together. This is the girl who wrote novels as a teenager!!!
At home I’ve made some really stupid mistakes – like burning food because I forgot it was in the oven (or I got distracted by something else). And yesterday I made a $400 banking error because I put money into the wrong account. 🙁
I’m really worried I might have ADD or something. Or what if it’s something worse, like a brain tumor or alzheimers?
I just don’t know what to do. I have a doctor’s appt in 2 weeks (just a follow up on some new meds) and my fiance told me to mention this issue to her. But I’m terrified she’s going to send me to a specialist and I’m going to get diagnosed with brain cancer or something 1.5 months before my wedding.
My friends have tried telling me that this is the result of stress brought on by the wedding and recently moving into a new house, and I’m sure that’s part of it but …. I’m just really scaring myself and really worried.
Does anyone out there have adult ADD? What’s it like? What are the symptoms?
Can someone please help ease my mind??
