I’m a 44 y/o dude and was diagnosed with ADHD 6 months ago. I’ve been in weekly therapy for a year. I started Lexapro a year ago, Wellbutrin 8 months ago, and Adderall 6 months ago. I was forced to resign from my job yesterday as a result of my shortcomings (employed 1yr & 7months). Reasons: repeated errors, lack of follow through, and attention to detail. 🤨 My job drove me (🍌s) to therapy, and I’m actually glad it did.
I have always been this way. I worry, daydream, am easily distracted while doing mundane tasks, I NEED music, I hear music in my head, & my legs can shake an entire room when they get going up and down and up and ... I consider myself funny, but often times my jokes are mistimed, misinterpreted, and why do I always feel like a joke is necessary? (sigh) That’s most likely the anxiety. Anyway...
I’m still dealing with the fallout of ... well, everything. My therapist suggested I find a forum or support group , well ... here I am.
