New to ADHD. Need help!!!
I am a 20 year old woman and was just recently diagnosed with ADHD. I am slowly getting my things together and my head wrapped around it. My biggest concern is whenever I get a goal (like to lose weight) I will come up with an awesome plan get really excited but within two to three days I become extremely depressed to the point of crying myself to sleep and overly angry because I want the result NOW! And if even one thing goes wrong I give up and then slip into a self loathing period. I don’t know how to help this urge to have result right then and there, I can’t keep going through what I am right now. If you have any input please help, I’m completely miserable and lost.
