Nice to be here with my kind

Hello.  I am so glad to be here.  I never heard of anyone else having this problem.  What a relief!  I have struggled with this for YEARS.  Since finding this site tonight, I have done a lot of reading online.  All instead of getting ready for a really important day today.  I do work well under pressure though, which is how this day will begin.  So what should I do from here?  I have read a lot of posts tonight and really identify with just about all of it.  I was searching earlier for mental health symptoms to try to figure out exactly what the hell is wrong with me.  I am so frustrated!  I would say on the scale of mild to severe, I am pretty severe.  I try to joke about it and convince myself that I am different from most others, and that can be a good thing.  Yeah, it's not funny anymore, and as I went to the pharmacy today for my ADD meds, I was convinced that I have something way more severe than ADD.  Does everyone feel that way?  Or maybe I do have some kind of other thing going on too.  I always feel like I didn't quite grow up, that I am so irresponsible and actually wish I had a personal coach or something to supervise me.  It is in ALL areas.  Work, housework, cooking, laundry, shopping.  It is as if I have no regard whatsoever sometimes for the things I need to do.  So what do I do first?  Once I get the hang of this, I promise to be a helpful member of this group.  What a promising thing I hope this will be.

Have a good day, friends and Happy Thanksgiving.
