OMG, I’ve been feeling like I’ve been going crazy. I’ve been having such a hard time lately. I’ve always been hard on myself and have always had a where there’s a will, there’s a way attitude, but after being thrust into post-surgical menopause after chemotherapy I can’t will anything together. I’m also on effexor for depression and menopause side effects since I can’t have HRT due to previous breast cancer. I finally today joined ADDitude forums for some support. Add me to the you are not alone list. It’s a struggle to not be able to explain ADHD to those surrounding me but then to add the menopause too at 37. It’s been very isolating as my friends are all in their early to mid-thirties and have no idea.
