ADHD in Women
Why Do I Feel Duped?
I sometimes feel I don’t really have ADHD, even after having low energy neuro stimulation which CLEARLY revealed the lack of function in my frontal lobe and other areas. I still often think I’ve been duped and the meds are a waste of money. I still often have this feeling that everyone is like this, everyone lacks focus, drive, organization, priorities, methodologies, perseverance, etc. I don’t know why after all this time, with all this physical proof and scientific and medical proof, I still doubt my diagnosis and feel as if I’m being duped! But part of it comes from the fact that the meds I’ve been on seem to only work for a time, and then I’m back to my usual poor habits and performances. Then I try a new med, which only works for a time…so I start thinking maybe the meds never really worked at all but rather I wanted to believe they did so badly that I ignored their true impotence. Does anyone else think like this??? It sounds insane as I reread what I’ve written here, but it’s what I struggle with on a daily basis. Doesn’t everyone, to some extent, have ADHD?
