It makes sense because ADD/ADHD is beyond exhausting. Something to consider right away is your diet. The brain is 60% fat so increasing your fat intake significantly is important. I eat 60% fat (including saturated fat/great cholesterol) 25% protein and 10-15% carbs. Back when I was still battling daily ADHD severe symptoms of chronic anxiety/depression/impulsivity and constant feelings of exhaustion, I always reached for carbs for energy. Now that I have changed my diet I feel even more grounded, my brain & body are happier and my energy level is even-keel instead of a constant roller coaster.

Something to consider
