You might want to try and find a psychiatrist who works with ADHD and also practices functional medicine. I read recently that sometimes sleep apnea can look like ADHD, but then there are multiple problems that “mimic” adhd, including trauma. There is no simple answer to being a neurodiverse person, but please don’t think of it as a “character flaw.” After all, if the world was made up of 100% of people with a brain just like yours, then the behaviors you think of as “character flaws” might just be “normal!”
