Hi. I’m struggling tonight with worry and anxiety about my present and future, once again that paralysed state of mind. I’m 35 and diagnosed a few months ago with ADHD. Just thought I’d put my thoughts down on here as I’ve got no one to talk to about it. You know that sad feeling where you just want to cry but don’t and the feeling lingers, yeh that.
So following diagnosis and taking Elvanse (Vyvanse) I’m starting to think of where my life’s going (again). I’ve had numerous jobs in the past and moved on or lost them out of lack of attention to detail, boredom, can’t see where it’s heading or not being permanent and when it is the same issues previously mentioned. I’m worried about getting back into work (left/lost the last job at a University after a anxiety attack/depression) and the whole cycle happening again. I’m quite intelligent, kind and not bad looking if I do say so myself. I used to be ‘the popular guy’ with girls but they have no idea what’s going on because I shield myself. But I’ve been single for 8 years out of choice, previous mentally abusive relationship, points for fear of not being good enough, unsettled in jobs, don’t drive, lack of direction, not knowing what to do career wise to get that direction blah blah. The biggest failure in my life I feel would be not settling down and having a family myself. I’m just back in that lost place again and could really do with someone who’s been through the mud that they made it and life’s worth carrying on for
