Lately I've been wondering if I might have ADD, but I don't know how to get tested for it.
My parents don't really pay attention to me that much because I am considered the most independent of my siblings. My little brother already has a LD and I don't want to make them worry about me.
I am a pretty good student in school and I take a lot of AP/honors classes, but lately it's been hard for me to focus and I tend to overthink things. I've always had these tendencies, but they didn't faze me too much in middle school and I just dealt with it.
Now that I'm a junior in high school though, things are starting to give me trouble. I have a hard time focusing in class a lot, I procrastinate a lot with school work, and worst of all I think too much.
Yes, I "think" too much, I dunno if this is a symptom but I tend to let my mind wonder, it ruins my train of thought when writing essays, taking tests, you name it. It especially gets annoying when I try to go to sleep because my constant thinking keeps me awake unless I have tired myself out to the point of exhaustion earlier in the day.
Can anybody tell me how to get evaluated for ADD and if it sounds like I might have it? I really hope I don't have it, but I need to put that possiblity to rest.
