Being a hyper child and then seeing that hyperness turn inward by feeling anxious and overwhelmed on a continuous basis is classic ADHD. Just because you tried Ritalin and didn’t experience a relief in symptoms does not mean you don’t have ADHD. Your doctor is incorrect. It could be it just wasn’t the right medication for you.
I was fortunate as Ritalin was the right medication for me. Both my anxiety and feelings of overwhelm subsided quite a bit.
I wouldn’t give up on meds. It just may take a few tries to get the right match.
Good luck to you!
