After getting your child's diagnosis, have you seen any comparisons in their behavior to your own as you look back over your childhood?  Many more adults are getting a diagnosis after recognizing the symptoms in their child:

I've come to realize that my son didn't come by his inattentiveness or procrastination all alone, mine really came to affect my life in college.  Up until then, I was able to manage on my own.  Once the work got harder though, I was not prepared for it.  

What have your experiences been?
