I was diagnosed with depression years ago and have just only recently been told that my depression was caused by undiagnosed ADHD. I have the inattentive type and not the hyperactivity but since starting my meds I feel the same way you described. I’m constantly doing things, I can’t switch off and I feel like I’ve just had 10 coffees all the time.

I don’t know about you but I’m loving this energy as I have spent years in a depressive state. It has also greatly helped me with my anxiety around making phone calls, something which used to send me into a panic attack.

I look forward to doing all the things I never had the motivation to do before.
