I was recently diagnosed, didnt really give it much thought until recently. Now I realize that I am the poster child for adult ADD. I have bern on Straterra, then ritalin and now Vyvanse. Im not seeing much difference and I think its because my life is in such chaotic shambles that I cant even think. The guilt Im feeling is killing me. My boyfriend just dumped me because he said it was a one sided relationship (imagine that, I didn’t make time for him) and is doing the no contact thing. It hurts but there is nothing I can do. Im about to get fired if I dont get a HUGE amount of work done this weekend. My house is a mess and Im just spinning like a top accomplishing nothing. Im asking for someone to please tell me what to do at this moment because I’m lost. I sent my Daughter to her Grandparents so she doesn’t have to see her Mom like this. I have no people to ask for help so that is out. Never been one for support groups but then again never knew my diagnosis and how out of control it is. If this comes across as desperate, it should.
