Took the week off to use up some vacation days that will expire at the end of the year. Not really doing anything other than binge watching Netflix so far. Really not motivated these days...

Career stuff is annoying... My performance evaluation was fine but without a more complex project I won't be able to get a higher rating let alone a promotion. And that is outside of my control.

Little wins: Saw a colleague, that I don't know very well, in the office kitchen today and didn't follow my first impulse to turn around and hope he didn't see me... :)

I just got my evaluation results back: ADHD + 'giftedness', which made the ADHD hard to diagnose earlier. Not sure how I feel about that... At least it explains why I am such a weird person, I guess.

A friend in his 40s just got diagnosed with ADHD a year or two ago and got medication. Says it changed his life. I hope this helps you too! (And being weird isn't such a bad thing! Gifted sounds pretty good!)

Three hours of ADHD assessments today. Looks like I finally know why I am so weird. Still have to wait for the official report, but the psychologist already told me that my answers were rather typical

... also had to do an intelligence test... I don't think I would have gone there if I had known that that was part of the assessment... Now I am kind of nervous about what the result will be.

Glad you were finally able to get a proper assessment. Hope you find the results helpful.

Hope the outcome will help you x

My intern started from today... A bit nervous about being a good host, but looking forward to working with her. Also really excited to have a female intern, given that my other colleagues are all men.

Back from US. Had a good time with the team there. Didn't want to go back to Japan. Annual health check done today. I hate the wait for the results but at least the appointment itself is over.

Arrived in the states. The person, who had my room before me left the alarm clock at 6 am, apparently the cleaning staff doesn't care, so I've been am awake (and grumpy) since then.

I want vacations.... but the only thing I get is another business trip to the states. At least I will have one weekend in San Francisco, so I hope that will be fun. :)

The appointment wasn't helpful at all. He gave me the same screening test that I had done at home before, told me that it says ADHD is likely and offered to prescribe medication.

He can't do any further testing, because he only has Japanese tests, and didn't do much of an interview... I did not feel I could rely on this at all and told him I won't take meds without a proper diagnosis... now I am back to square one.

Oh Tuxi - I 'm so sorry, that must be so disappointing. xx

Can you see someone else? This doesn't sound useful at all. :(

Seeing a psychiatrist tomorrow to talk about ADHD evaluation... Called them today and thought I would get an appointment in a few weeks but actually got one for tomorrow. Now I am nervous...

It'll be ok. You'll be glad you went when you get out of there. Maybe even before. Good luck!

19 Jun 2018

Good luck! Hope it's helpful
