Okay, so I havent had any anxiety hardly at all for quite sometime now. For the past two nights, I have had a bit of a battle with small panic attacks.

So heres my deal, I've come to find out that its a possibility that I have adult ADD, or ADHD. I've been having minor mood swings, and I am VERY spacey lately. It's starting to worry me a little. My concentration is awful, and like I said, I'm just spaced out. I'm not really sure what to make of this. Right now my mind is going super fast, and I feel like time is kind of sped up and slowed down at the same time. Idk I'm just pretty panicky, if you can't tell from this frantic, ranting post. :p

Well, if anyone has any suggestions or ideas or just want to talk please let me know. :)

You guys are great, thanks :D

Good Morning Paige,

I am sorry to hear you are having a tough time and wondering if you started any new medications? As there is a possibility that you may have ADD I am going to post a link for you and it is just FYI, read only what interests you but don't over think any of it. Remember your Doctor is your best source of info and help for you. It never hurts to have a little bit of info IMHO.

We are all here to support you.

Gentle Hugs,

You know sometimes google can scare us more as we read about symptom after symptom that we are experiencing that could mean this or that disease/disorder or what have you.

But in this case, I think following the link to will simply inform you better. Take all you read/learn with a grain of salt and remember that everyone's different. Don't paint yourself into a corner with labels if that's what you want to avoid. Everyone is unique, just cause one person has a set of symptoms that mirrors another doesn't mean the same treatments will work.

I might be able to relate a little bit to the things you are experiencing. I've been pretty spacey lately myself...i'll be watching tv, and think of something and wander off for 5 minutes and not know what's going on in my show at all lol. That's just a silly example of many, but i think you get the point.

Minor little escapes, but they have increased, and I've always wondered if I may have a type of ADD or ADHD. I'm going to follow the link as well. Let me know if you find some solace, or want to discuss your experiences more.

Take care.
