Thank you for the response. My next normal psychiatrist appointment is tomorrow, and I’ve decided before anything else I’m just going ask about being evaluated for ADHD. Once I get into the normal line of questioning psychiatrists or consolers ask, I tend to lie about how much I’m struggling. So I’m going to try to say my concerns right away before I get to the point of lying. Overall, I just want whatever treatment methods, including counseling and medication that will make feel like I can function in day-to-day life, and that I have the ability to live a productive life, which I’ve never really felt.
