Many adults get a late in life diagnosis, but that doesn’t mean the diagnosis isn’t helpful. Treatment certainly is. Here’s one such story:

“I Was a 45-Year-Old Woman! I Had My Own Business! I Could Not Have ADHD.”

It sounds like working with a therapist could be helpful. You could have depression as well, especially if you’re feeling this down. Reach out and get some help.
