I was ADHD diagnosed and medicated at 44 years old; I'd coped well with this for 3 months, then struggled with anxiety and sleeping disorders. This caused me to stop the ADHD medication and start treating the Anxiety disorder. When I reached a healthier condition, I returned to the ADHD treatment along with the anxiety one.
I live in Brazil and I was diagnosed after 40 years of age, so like many of you, I am fighting a never-ending battle with stigma, also inside my marriage.
Thank God, fortunately things are improving.
