I'm 40 years old and newly diagnosed with ADD and depression. I have opted not to take medication bc I did not enjoy the side effects, and besides I've been faking it this long, so....I've always known I was different. I always thought my life should be better. I always wondered why I tried harder than everyone else just to get minimal results in life. I've never been good at anything....jack of all trades and master of none. I've never had a successful relationship and never been married. I've tried and tried and I'm so tired. I guess I will give CBT a try. I have nothing else to lose and believe me, I've lost so much bc of this horrible affliction. ADD is a curse and I would never wish it on my worst enemy.
