I'm so exhausted in trying to find help I need. I can't stand the thought of sitting down with one more medical professional who'd rather "tell" me what I feel or need, instead of "listening" to me about my concerns. Someone who will engage in a back and forth conversation about it in order to better understand. Living with anxiety and ADHD all my life has me constantly feeling like a poser as it is. It's not something I want to feel in what's supposed to be a safe place where I'm having to speak about my most vulnerable traits. I also don't want to feel like a horrible person for requesting medication therapy when I've had years of successful therapy that has included it.
I've needed to get back to a doctor for my ADHD, anxiety, and OCD. I have been off any treatment for around a year now. The last psych doctor I had made me feel so ashamed and so weak for having the mentioned conditions. He even wanted to reverse my ADHD diagnosis based solely on the fact that I didn't fail his computer test. (Just because I was able to champion my wild mind during that test doesn't mean my diagnosis is wrong. It means I've accomplished something awesome that morning) It's worth mentioning he did change his mind about it after an 1.5h session. (Damage had already been done though). Because of all that, I've been suffering with no help.
Does anyone know a professional who actually understands what ADHD really and truly is, and is willing to work with their patients to find the best plan of action? Someone in the Baton Rouge/Gonzales/Prairieville, Louisiana. I've searched through lots of sources, but nothing that can give me this kind of information.
I am so sorry for the lengthy post. I am new at this. I thank you all so very much for just being here. That means the world.
Peace and love to you all!!!
