Middle Aged Adult with NVLD, by VM

Hello I am V.M., I’m in my mid-30s and have NVLD. Like many people I was misdiagnosed with ADHD as a child, but always suspected the diagnosis was incorrect, as I did not not have any of the symptoms. I began to conclude I had NVLD in college after I researched LDs that seem to be math specific and the college psychometrician assessed me. Reading social cues and performing complex processes in the correct sequence is a struggle for me, but I use the approved compensatory methods to mitigate the symptoms.
