You are not alone, nor “crazy” as I have felt at times. I can relate to a lot of what you and the others have said. I am 48, diagnosed with adhd at 45. And a general anxiety disorder. Been dealing with major depression lately as I am now separated after 23 years of marriage. Oh, well. I have a new therapist to work with my upcoming challenges, and a pretty decent psychiatrist. He takes the time to listen and ask questions when he sees me struggle.

Hang in there, and get more support around you. Its okay to be paralyzed at times…just be aware, and take one thing at a time. There will always be laundry. So don’t feel guilty.

Also check out flylady – she has some great advice for 15 minutes at a time.
