"Our job in this lifetime is not to shape ourselves into some ideal we imagine we ought to be, but to find out who we already are and become it."

I am feeling more and more average now that everyone is saying that they are "severe" as well. I am not alone here
Seriously though, I do have to wonder about the accuracy of the test though if all of us are coming back with some form of ADHD? I found that some of the questions did mimic those that could be asked of a person that was depressed or has anxiety and if answered "yes" then the end result could show ADHD. I guess if someone was not depressed or suffered from anxiety and was just looking at ADHD then the assessment would be a good one. Just sort of thinking out loud.
Honestly, I'm afraid to take the assessment for fear I might qualify for yet another mental health condition. I'm already bipolar and PTSD (the doc diagnosed me PTSD on the first day, I forgot to tell y'all) & I'm afraid that if I'm also ADHD, I don't know what's going to become of me.
I just posted, then took the assessment, and it said I had "severe ADHD behaviors." A lot of them seemed similar to manic or hypomanic behaviors though, especially on the first page. Anyone have any idea as to the accuracy of that test? Some of the questions seemed impossible to answer "no" to, such as "ever experience strained relationships with family members?" Hmmm...
I am not sure of the accuracy of the assessment as it seems that most if not all of us are coming back with severe ADHD behaviours......join the club As I mentioned above, I think some of the questions can be hard to answer and if anyone suffers from anxiety, depression, bipolar etc. then the answer would be yes no matter what, which could vary the results of the test.
