I am a 31 y/o female who has recognized that I have ADHD for quite sometime. I’ve known that this is my challenge since about 15 but have always been criticized as just lazy, depressed, selfish, low motivation and ‘ditzy’. So much so that I even went through a period of considering it’s not ADHD at all and just something fundamentally wrong with me. It is indeed ADHD and I fear seeking treatment because I will not be able to handle another person not listening to what I’m telling them and assuming I’m just self diagnosing ADHD like a lot of people do just to try and get med and not helping me with it. I’ve tried getting telehealth support for this and luckily I was heard and tried two different meds that were HORRIBLe and Off label for ADHD. Again, I feel like this half-hearted attempt on both my end and their end. I don’t know where to go and my rejection sensitivity dysphoria is pretty extra right now. I’m at a point where not seeking professional help/meds seems like a better option and I guess I’ll just keep having to suffer through this. Has anyone felt this way and how did you get REAL help?
