Hi all, I'll be concise. I am 18 years old, I am a female (if this matters). I have always been the kind of girl who spaced out a lot, in fact, I joked about it with my friends. I thought it was just lack of sleep, as school work didn't let me get enough hours of rest but I've been 7 months without school now and it is still happening. I feel this is getting worse or maybe I'm just more aware of it now. I'm spacing out a lot, I mean A LOT. I forget things too easily, it's like my memory is that of an elder woman. I've seen the symptoms for ADHD, look them up, I have every single one of them. My neurologist on the other hand doesn't think I have ADHD because I graduated with Honors. I worked really hard the last two years of HS, it wasn't easy trust me! It took a lot of coffee and a lot of stress and tears but I did it.
Please, this is worrying me. Every day I space out more. She thinks I might have Epilepsy (Absence seizures) but unlike many epileptics, I remember I spaced out. I'm having blood tests and MRI, EEG done. But I'd like to know what you guys think. I can't concentrate, I used to write books for fun and now I can't. I'm literally bursting to tears here. I can't do anything without standing up and walking around for no reason, without just staring blankly at the wall.
Any thoughts? I'm sorry I wrote so much. If you read this, thank you.:(:(:(
