Hello everyone.Its been some time I posted in here.

Well recently I was diagnosed as having ADHD. Seems like I always had it but did not have a term for the feelings I was experiencing.

I just cannot do mundane tasks like standing in a line, waiting for someone, just standing still.

Suddenly a gush of anxiety flows through the body .I start tapping my legs with pace, fidgeting with my hands to let go of the uneasiness but that uneasy feeling keeps on building up.Soon ,it rises to an extent where my eyes become teary and I have to leave that task to do something interesting and then it subsides. But even then ,its just moving from one mental stimulation to another.

Going to work becomes such an arduous task ,concentrating at work becomes impossible.

Most days are dealt with curbing the depression .I take medications regularly but some days I just cannot function. I cannot do any productive tasks.

Can someone relate to having such experiences, ADHD and depression? Would love to talk about it.

    I have the same issues, i can barely make it through hour long meetings, I’m constantly watching the clock. I saw a new psychiatrist and she was like, your anxiety and racing thoughts is prob ADD. She put me on guanfacine which I take at night. Still have tons of thoughts which make my moods fluctuate like crazy throughout the day. But I’m giving it a chance for now… ‍♀️

      Hey Abby
      Thank you for sharing your views. Yes I can totally relate to it.Those meetings seem never ending.I begin tapping my legs and watching the clock slowly tick by.
      So has the medicine helped? Plus I have seen that I have low frustration levels ,Like I get angry quickly after attending a meeting like that or doing mundane tasks and need time to do something interesting to get back to normal.
      Have you experienced it ?

    I think there are a lot of people who can relate to feeling like there is always too much to do and where to begin and then having trouble staying focused without wanting to start something else

    Have you found any activities where you find yourself fully immersed and engaged?
