Thank you so, so, so, so much for this article. I'm 43 years old. At 41, I finally receive a diagnosis of OCD and chronic pain. Before that, in my 20s and 30s, I knew I had GAD and clinical depression. I'm just now beginning to understand that I likely have ADHD and it is SO HELPFUL in understanding my behavior and why some things (organizing, staying on one task at a time) are so freaking hard for me. While reading your article, I tweeted, messaged, called a psychiatrist, and left a message to make an appointment for evaluation with a psychologist. And, your article is wonderful. It's like I can't get my brain to stay still and focus most of the time.
Anyway, seeing my behavior (and others) through this lens and the MACRO society lens is so, so, so helpful.
I don't even know how to convey how extremely comforting reading this has been for me.
