Tomorrow night at 10:30 pm ET/ 7:30 pm PT I will be interviewing Pete Quily about Adult ADHD Support Groups on the Living with Adult ADD / ADHD Radio Show. We will talk about how to start and run an adult ADHD support group.
I’m 55 and I’m living with undiagnosed and untreated adult ADHD. This is by far the worst thing I believe I’ve ever gone through, and I’ve been through quite a bit.
Looking back I have had it my entire life, was treated for depression in my 30s and fought a drug addiction in my late 40s. Symptoms were obvious to me as I look back, there was no doubt I was suffering then and was unaware of it. We didn’t know the symptoms then to be able to know back in the day.
The symptoms have gotten worse as I age. After I figured it out, taking online tests too see if I fit the criteria for adult ADHD, (just being double sure) and sadly I was a textbook case, checking all the boxes on the test. At least it now had a name for the weird things I have always felt and didn’t know what it was. Now I know. I’m not crazy. They made me feel good!
Within the last three to six months the symptoms have magnified magnificently. Daily it is worse, kicking in with bouts of insomnia, ANXIETY and all that goes with it. It’s kicking my butt believe me. You can tell by my blog posts because that had been my subject for a few of them.
Long story short, the sliding scale clinic I go to says they are not funded to treat ADHD. I’m like really? That doesn’t sound right to me so I have to check in it further. And I will trust me. I need help and I need meds. I have no transportation so I’m limited in what I can do and can’t do. I now am waiting on disability (which will take a long while) so I’m trying to make my blog a success and get it to where it’s making money. I just have no clue how to go about it past creating it that is. I just started it 2 weeks ago. I’ve already written 15 and am almost finished with number 16.
I can’t keep going thru this bc it’s almost unbearable. I’m in hyper mode and I can’t get away.
Thanks for “listening”
That’s my story and I’m glad I’m here.
Check out my blog and the sorry “Inside the tornado, thoughts lie”
*****It is about being inside the brain of ADHD during an episode of hyper focus and confusion comes. Usually when you have no sleep and stress…I had both so this blog post takes you inside. I write it during the moment not after so I could describe it as close as I could to the way I was feeling.
Here is my blog site! (If you are on mobile phone to view it, it works best if you go to the top right hand corner of the blog page and click on the the three vertical dots, scroll down and check the box across from DESKTOP SITE)
