ADHD brain sometimes means hyperfocus on stupid things and oops it’s 2am

@fabio here in france, to get a diagnosis and treatment, you first have to see a regular doctor who will refer you to a psychiatrist. when i described my symptoms, including hyperfocus, to my doctor, they told me it couldn't be adhd, because i obviously don't have attention problems if i can nerd out for hours on some random project. i had to insist that they refer me anyway.

@gaeel I had to pay out of pocket for an assessment because of that. I’m in Canada and it’s *theoretically* possible to get a free assessment, but many doctors are still living in the 80s.
