Well I'm not sure, what does edf stand for? Try searching on the internet or asking your doctor about it.


Whatever it is, chances are I've been there.
If I can make it out, you can too.

I am not sure what EDF is and google doesn't seem to provide any results either, could you please elaborate on this or tell us what EDF means?

Hey there,

Do you know exactly what EDF is an abbreviation of? If you could provide that information then it may be easier to gain some more information about it.
Also, as Alessa has said, it may be worthwhile talking to your doctor about it if they have diagnosed you with something. The doctor should make sure that you understand what's going on and answer any questions that you may have.

Take care.

Well my advice would be to talk to your parents or doctor. I'm sure they would know the most. I googled it and it says it basically affects “planning, flexibility, organization, and self-monitoring". You may want to research it more on the web but make sure the websites you are looking at have correct information.


Whatever it is, chances are I've been there.

Well, not only would I go back to your doctor and discus this. I would highly recommend you get a second opinion. Executive Function (or dysfunction) is currently not an official disorder yet, and is still in theory. Quite frankly from what I have heard, it doesn’t seem like it will be making it into the DSM anytime soon. And to be officially diagnosed with a disorder that is not officially a disorder yet, seems strange to me.

Hey,

Obviosuly this is a very complicated issue, and as it isn't a disorder your doctor should not be suggesting it to you. I strongly suggest that you go and visit him again, or get a second opinion from a different doctor. Diagnosis aren't as important as the treatment, however and I think you should definitely make sure that you are getting some help from your doctor
