Hi all, I'm writing this as I'm getting close to not knowing what else to do. I've been told I'm above average intelligence but it's not helping me at all. I've gone to multiple psychologists/psychiatrists as well as therapists and have been on just about everything out there.
I'm recently 50, have had 10 jobs in 24+ years including 2 of those jobs being responsible for 16+ years (2 companies one 7.5 years the other 9) then a slew of short stints. I'm going through a divorce which has been rough on me and my two girls as my ex is super organized and goal oriented and my girls and I all have ADD/ADHD. My older daughter is 16 and lives with me and my girlfriend and her family due to the fighting with her mom. All because of ADHD. My 11 year old struggles mightily in school due to it as well and because she lives with her mom.
I've tried just about every stimulant, minus new ones. They work for a week then my body has a stupid way of becoming immune to their effects. A recent visit to a Neurologist said he was not sure what to do as my body assimilates the meds quickly.
I am broke, although I make a very good living, because of being impulsive. Having to pay a psychologist/therapist for help is tough due to this fact.
I'm scared, and need help and have ZERO idea what to do.
