Newly diagnosed

Hi there ,

I am in my 40’s and have a long history of mental health conditions. I’ve been diagnosed so many times with psychiatrists disagreeing with each other and I’m so done with learning about the condition I’m told I have but then seems not to be the case. I have bi polar with mixed state ( that’s what I’ve been medicated for for 10 years but with the allowance of my psych I’ve ...

Fighting hard to get a diagnosis. I hope it's worth it!

TL:DR - Getting a diagnosis has been long, hard, and facing dismissive attitudes at nearly every step. Still trying and moving forwards against a headwind of

I'm in the process of fighting to get a diagnosis as per the title. In fact, I've been fighting to get a diagnosis on my mental health and issues I have since my mid-20s and I'm 45 now. Sure, I've been covered by the blanket 'depression and anxiety', but ...

Two sides split? Switching from logical to emotional?

What would this be called? When you suddenly pay way too much attention and lock yourself out of your emotions?

I seem to have two versions of myself one that pays a lot of attention all at once and one that pays little attention and feels more emotional etc. But there doesn't seem to be much inbetween, when I switch to the logcial part it's hard for me to acsess my emotions again for a ...

I'm in need of some advice

Hi, I'm 18 years old. I have ADHD, depression, OCPD. I've been taking concerta ever since I was 9 years old. The thought of having depression never crossed my mind while taking this medication, until I got out of my toxic 3 year relationship. I wish I would've left sooner, I constantly say, "Its my fault" or "I could've done better" I hate the pity and the "I'm sorry" when ever I tell this story. ...

Vent and questions to you

Hi all,
I've not been diagnosed but have strong suspicion that I could fit in here ... don't get me wrong, it's not one of your "Do I have ADD?" posts - that is, I'm not asking you to comment on that although ofc you may, if you want to - it's more intended as a bit of venting with some explicit questions attached to it.
For those of you who don't like to read ...

Learning to Cope With Adut ADHD

Hey everyone. Greetings and thanks for stopping by for a read.

I won't start with my name yet until I get to know the site a bit better, but I'm in Eastern Canada and I'm 57 years old. Last year I got in trouble with the law when a lot of abuse from my past finally caught up with me. I did nothing to hurt anyone, I just had stuff I shouldn't have had.

I ...

Just need a friend

I'm hoping to find here someone with whom I can relate. I just need to hear (or read) someone say, "I understand." The only family I have are a husband, an adult daughter who lives far away, and an adult niece who stays with me on and off. They are sick of hearing the word ADD. In fact they're rarely interested in anything I want to say. Now my horror story: I wasn't diagnosed until ...
