Reply To: Depression – and something else


You are not alone. I’m 56 and find that my symptoms have worsened as I’ve gotten older. It surprises me how unmotivated and undisciplined I’ve gotten, and my depression and anxiety are exacerbated by the sense that I will never live up to my potential. I’ve been trying to find ways to deal with the challenges of ADHD naturally, but realize I probably need to see a doctor or therapist and find the right medication that will help me feel more focused and calm while not dampening my creativity. I am able to put on a happy and friendly front, but on the inside I am an angry mess and I don’t like myself for that. I know I have it in me to do better, but I’ve got to get out of my own way.
