Hello, I'd like to help you with your question.
It is possible to have some symptoms from many diagnoses. It is also possible to have more than one diagnosis at a time. While it is unethical for mental health professionals to diagnose anyone without a full evaluation face to face, the information you have provided can give some idea of what you might want to explore further with a local mental health therapist.
There are many causes of procrastination from the mild to the more serious. People often procrastinate because they are fearful or disorganized. It is very common for students and adults. They many not learn how to organize or prioritize tasks and end up scrambling to get things done at the last minute.
It is also possible that you have milder symptoms of ADHD. ADHD is not considered a learning disability. For adults who have the disorder, it is characterized by trouble concentrating, organizing tasks, remembering information and completing work on time. Up to 10% of children are diagnosed with ADHD and 60% of those carry the disorder into adulthood.
The criteria for Adult ADHD is different than with children. Here are some common symptoms you might experience with the disorder:
Relationship problems or Marital Difficulties
Tendency to overlook details
Not paying attention during conversations, inability to listen well (in any conversation)
Medications can help with ADHD and are the recommended treatment. Therapy can also help you learn to control some of your symptoms.
Bipolar is usually more pronounced than the symptoms you are describing. It is marked by periods of extreme highs and periods of extreme lows. You need at least one of those to qualify for Bipolar, Type II. Type I Bipolar only requires that you experience the extreme high. You can have depression, but it is usually not that severe and may not happen at all. And Cyclothymia
is mild highs and mild lows.
The best way to know what you do have is to see a professional for a full evaluation. They can not only provide a diagnosis, but they can give you the correct course of treatment to help. With both ADHD and Bipolar, they are both treated with medications. It is thought that they are caused by brain chemical imbalances so medication is the most effective treatment.
I hope this has helped you,
