Do I have Adult ADHD or something similar?


Q: Do I have Adult ADHD? I've looked at the symptoms and a few of them I have. For example -

Be easily distracted, miss details, forget things, and frequently switch from one activity to another.

Have difficulty maintaining focus on one task.

Become bored with a task after only a few minutes, unless doing something enjoyable.

Have difficulty focusing attention on organizing and completing a task or learning something new or trouble completing or turning in homework assignments, often losing things (e.g., pencils, toys, assignments) needed to complete tasks or activities.

Daydream, become easily confused, and move slowly.

Have difficulty processing information as quickly and accurately as others.

Struggle to follow instructions.

Can be fidgety or restless.

I'm 18 years old, almost 19. Could it be something else?
