Depression and ADHD
anyone lived through it?
I’m new to the group and hoping someone out there has lived through all of this.
I’ve suffered with major depression for 5 years, and was diagnosed with adhd 2 years ago. I am 29.
I’m mom to a smart, forever energetic 7 year old boy with add. My sweet and subdued 5 year old girl was diagnosed with developmental coordination disorder a few months ago. I’m busy doing pt and ot with her.
I turned the corner on depression last March and thought I was doing better. I’ve been so frustrated with my inability to get anywhere on time, to see the floors or counters in my house, or to get my kids to listen to me ever that I snapped this last weekend and crashed my car in the shoulder of the road in a failed suicide attempt. Can someone please tell me if this ever ends? I’m so tired of failing and not being able to keep up with normal life. I’m just not sure all the hard work and then still failing all the time is worth it.
