Anyway, I made an appointment, and I kept it! I went to my doctor. I told him I wanted to discuss the possibility of me having ADD/ADHD/AD/HD… whatever it is they call it now. He looked very skeptical at first and said that perhaps my history of depression and anxiety were leading to the general symptoms. Then I started talking in more detail.
Oh yeah. He’s sending me for an eval.
So. You want talent? Listen to this. I drive home with the info, bring it in the house, and 5 minutes later, IT’S LOST.
I told you. Pure. Talent.
So, long story short, I’m all panicky and anxiety-ey, etc, etc. Finally find his website and number and call.
Whoa. Not prepped for that.
We make the appointment for February 14th, and he asks if I’ve looked at his website. The conversation goes as follows:
Me: “Well… um… there are a lot of really long paragraphs… not really my thing”
Him: laughing “You just had the first part of your evaluation!”
Me: “But you had tabs! I liked the tabs!”
Him: “Yup, they’re there to click on in case you get bored!”
So, this should be fun.
At any rate, the anxiety has kicked into high gear. I am soooo unpleasant to be around! I told hubbie, I’m on the edge. I could sink into one of those dangerous funks sooooo easy right now. But – as of right now – I’m staying up. It seems like FOREVER until the appointment, but at least it’s a start.
Oh. Did I mention the initial appointment is $340?
Yeah. Because I have that in my back pocket. Don’t you?
***DISCLAIMER*** I have decided this is the last uber serious post. Well, in a row. Meaning there may be more but I want this to become more FUN! I mean, I have like 4 whole people who read it you know. 😉 Growing Into Me is not supposed to be all pain and moaning and negative. This is exciting and encouraging! Erm…. right?!?!
