I agree with Tammy — see someone who specializes in ADHD. My last psychiatrist refused to believe I had ADHD in spite of 20 years of diagnosis and success being treated with Adderal. It was the most humiliating and invalidating experience I could go through at a time when I was desperate and struggling. The therapist she referred me to cancelled my appointment when he saw my ADHD dx because he refuses to treat ADHD patients.

My new doc specializes in executive function disorders and it has made a world of difference. I found him through the CHADD website. Perhaps you can find a supportive doctor there? I’m sorry you’re going through this and I empathize. Know that we are here to support you!
