Your words and how you are feeling resonated with me. I’m almost 40 and don’t have a “career”. I’ve failed at pretty much everything that I have ever tried. But…when I was at my lowest (Which it sounds like you are there now) I read a book called “Girl Stop Apologizing” by Rachel Hollis. It’s not a book about ADHD or anything related. It’s a kickass, pump you up you are a great person book. It really helped me get out of my funk, to start seeing myself for me and not my ADHD. I started to write a book about a girl who fails, falls, and then finds out that she has ADHD. I’m hoping to have it edited and published in the new year. My goal is to help others who may be struggling and it sounds like you are. Please take measures to get the help you need. You did a great thing by reaching out here and I hope that my story can help you a little. Best wishes!! 🙂
