Honestly, it sounds like ADHD. You just need to bring it up with your PCP. He/she might treat it. That, or give you a referral to a psychiatrist. I have struggle with this all my life and I am 54 years of age. I have actually completed graduate school and so pretty good. Hang in there!

Yeah my work performance has diminished over the last few months I’m just not sure what i should do. Bringing up new things is always scary you know.
Yeah, I understand. Look at it this way. If you were not performing well due to the flu or a virus of some kind, you would not hesitate going to the doctor. Should this be treated different?

What Customers are Saying:

I can go as far as to say it could have resulted in saving my sons life and our entire family now knows what bipolar is and how to assist and understand my most wonderful son, brother and friend to all who loves him dearly. Thank you very much

Corrie MollPretoria, South Africa

I thank-you so much! It really helped to have this information and confirmation. We will watch her carefully and get her in for the examination and US right away if things do not improve. God bless you as well!

ClaudiaAlbuquerque, NM

Outstanding response time less than 6 minutes. Answered the question professionally and with a great deal of compassion.

KevinBeaverton, OR

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
