(posted this in Advice then realised Relevant Forum. sadly I do not know how to delete the other thread. sorry for redundancy!) My tangled up anxious brain nonsense has finally affected a thing that means I'm forced to actually get it diagnosed or registered or Something that means I can show it to my university and say 'hey, I'm not just doing this for kicks'. I've talked to a therapist about it before but not a doctor (in this case it would be a GP), and not well or clearly. Any tips for how to talk about sensitive and scary brain stuff to a doctor with the aim of them... I guess writing down 'sounds legit'? Ideally I would also love to get an idea from them of whether I should look into an ADHD diagnosis, but since regular appointments are about 15 minutes that's secondary. When I think about it clearly it's obvious this isn't something I'm making up but I tend to try really hard to persuade myself otherwise right before this kind of stuff. tl;dr: any tips or relevant experience on getting a doctor to tell you what's up with you brainwise, and put it down on official paper?
