In Search of A Diagnosis?

Be very, very careful.

I have written on this topic before, but we keep seeing more and more about neurodivergence, adult ADHD, undiagnosed mood problems, and so forth. Naturally people want to understand their brains and how they operate, in order to create improved day-to-day coping skills and — it is hoped — shed some of the shame that psychiatric diagnoses carry. For some situations, medication might help and you will need a diagnosis for that.
