ADHD Self-Test for Women
Please check "yes" if you feel a statement applies to you, and "no" if it does not.
Time, money, paper, or "stuff" is dominating my life and hampering my ability to achieve my goals.
I often shut down in the middle of the day feeling assaulted. Requests for "one more thing" put me over the top emotionally.
I spend most of my time coping, looking for things, catching up, or covering up. I avoid people because of this.
I have stopped having people over to my house because I'm ashamed of the mess.
I have trouble balancing my checkbook.
I often feel as if life is out of control, or that it's impossible to meet demands.
I feel like I'm always at one end of a deregulated activity spectrum- either a couch potato or a tornado.
I feel that I have better ideas than other people but am unable to organize them or act on them.
I start each day determined to get organized.
I have watched others of equal intelligence and education pass me by.
I worry that I'll never fulfill my potential or meet my goals.
I have often been thought of as selfish because I don't write thank-you notes or send birthday cards.
I'm clueless as to how others manage to lead consistent, regular lives.
I am often called "a slob" or "spacey". I feel like I'm just "passing for normal". I feel like I'm an impostor.
All my time and energy is taken up with coping, staying organized, and holding it together, with no time for fun or relaxation.
