Is this a sign?

Back in 8th grade (I’m a senior now), I was diagnosed with depression. Lately I’ve been sad with no reason or I feel nothing, like I’m numb. I also have ADD. I go to school like everything in my life is fine but in reality I just want to go home and sleep. I don’t show those songs at school at all. I get enough sleep and my diet is well but I just get sleepy or tired after really not doing a lot.

Talk to your doctor. It’s the best advice you can get.

I’ve a therapist but I told my mom to schedule an appointment but it’s in 3 weeks. I was doing good so I don’t see him as much anymore. I was just looking for if how I’m feeling is maybe a sign

At your age, you are still developing and growing, and will be for a few more years, you are dealing with ADD (without meds?) and lack of interest...like a flat pancake.....anything is possible.....perhaps a thorough physical including blood work is in order to detect or rule out physical causes..(like thyroid issues)..and your suggestion to your Mom to see your therapist is a good one. You have insight, young man and that's a very good thing to have. :)

My apologies for the gender blunder. That's my bad. Several young men in my extended family deal with ADD, so so sorry my subconscious crept in. But you do project some insight into your situation and you understand the Adderall or dosage could be affecting your body and mind chemistry as you are still developing and women have certain hormones that men don't have to deal with.....what do you think about the complete physical, including blood work, as something like thyroid could be affecting you?

It’s all good I understand lol but adderall overall makes me not hungry which could be a cause but I usually don’t take it everyday because my schedule is so light. But I could probably talk to my mom about it and see what she thinks and maybe she will take me to a doctor. How should I explain this to her?
