ADHD in Women
Depressed and Tired of It
I was recently diagnosed with Inattentive ADD about a month or so ago. Though I’m grateful that I was finally diagnosed, I’m now starting to see how difficult it is to live with this.
I still struggle with deadlines and procrastination. I do things at the last minute, though I make a note to get done early. I also struggle with motivation, finishing projects and interacting with people—which probably explains why I don’t like being around people for too long. I’m moody and don’t have much patience for things—the list goes on.
I was taking Strattera, but it made me sick. I’m not taking anything and I’m afraid to, so I’m struggling with keeping my symptoms in check. Meanwhile, I am discouraged because I can’t find a job in the social work field and think my ADD is to blame.
I’m doing everything I can to learn about the disorder, but there’s so much and I feel like I’m drowning in it.
I guess I’m writing all of this because I need support.
