I have been a MADD for 50 yrs. I am 52 now. I wonder if Asburgers goes along with this. I have been misdiagnosed and misprescribed many times by some less educated "professionals" who looked at me like I had two heads when I tried to explain it. I had one Psychiatrist who tried to railroad me into the Schizophrenic category by pressuring me into saying I had Auditory Hallucinations when I didn't, all because I had a tough time choosing a flavor of Potato Chips in a store isle. This is after I had told him about my Fantasy world I'd get lost in for many hours daily. Indecisiveness is not hearing voices telling you to do things. It has destroyed my life. I thought I had ADD or ADHD. Really, I have a major problem with Daydreaming to the extent of getting lost in a Fantasy Land. Traumatic experiences and negative situations seem to make MADD worse. Alcohol used to ascerbate the already existing problem. Don't get intoxicated on occasion anymore. I'm glad I grew out of that. I had to get a cleaning job just so I could make my own schedule. Thought it was because of Major Depressive Disorder but that's only because no one understood MADD including myself up until now. I also suffer from bouts of PTSD and Anxiety Attacks since childhood.

I'm so sorry to hear that! Welcome to forum and you now belong to a place where you belong and feel understood. Madd hasn't been fully recognized by scientist and mental health professionals. There's been little research on it so everyone here on this website is just trying to figure this thing out for ourselves with the small help of others. Those scientist should be fired to be honest with you. It seems like they can't listen nor do their job and are describing you something that isn't true. I'm only 15 and never been to therapy..but I know good well they don't act like that. It's kinda one of the reasons I don't want to go to therapy. Madd does have linked relationships with ADHD, Anxiety, Depression, OCD, all that but it does not mean that you fully have that. I think Madd is a complete disorder of its known and needs to be closely looked at. It's late right now so Imma go to bed but if you ever need anything just let us know and at least someone will be here to help.
