Hey, I'm Alfredo from Chile, I'm 24 years old and I was diagnosed with ADHD like 4 months ago.
I'm like the cliché, problematic kid for parents and teachers, but excelent grades. Then went to engineer school and drop it, to pursue my dream in music. My parents didn't let me study music before so I entered a conservatory.
Now when I'm supossed to be motivated with my studies I can't even get off of bed.
I'm in third year but really delayed, not going to class, failing some classes, so I fell into a depression.
Now I have been in therapy for almost a year with a psychologist and a couple of months with a psychiatrist, taking pills for my ADHD and dysthymia, but nothing works.
I have read a ton of books and articles, seen a lot of videos of important Doctors, tried to schedule my times, and nothing works. I can't get me to go to class and I can't stop procrastinating, in a deep level. Sometimes I don't sleep trying to start over and over and I can't.
I don't know what to do, I can't get things done. Recently I have been thinking in just quit the music consevatory and take home tutorials about the subjects of music. I think that's the best that could work for me, but it would be like "surrending" to the ADHD. I really want to have my career and my degree, don't want to drop the academy but I can't do anything, I'm just throwing money and time.
