I felt exactly the same way 3 years ago, i totally understand you. You can’t imagine. I was in the same emotional situation, thinking a lot about killing myself…. Down roll spiral.
I am ADHD and i have general anxiety disorder.
The great new is that there is hiddens benefices of having ADHD. The only thing is that our current society don’t teach us our advantage. They teach us how to fit in (i can’t do that and i bet that you can’t to).
I believe, and this is not only my opinion but many successful people\coach/specialist (a minority), that having ADHD give me some massive disadvantage and also give me massive advantage. I truly believe that we must focus more on our advantage than our disadvantage.
