I am concerned, frustrated, and in search of a starting point to determine and hopefully diagnose whatever it is affecting my ability to remember, to focus, and to be able to function day to day without having to rely on committing simple things to habit in order to insure it gets done. At times I get so "scatter-brained" that it becomes difficult to align and prioritze simple daily functions. There are times I can't sit still, and times I don't want to get up. I just don't know what to do!
I personally have a history of events including heart surgery, combat related depression and anxiety; plus a family history of alcoholism, dimentia and ADHD. I'm a 45 year old male who refuses to believe it's simply age.
I have finally overcome the denial of possibly having an undiagnosed condition, therefore I am begging for advice on where to start.View Thread
