Welcome to the club. I’m, 49yo and only got diagnosed with Adult ADHD 5 years ago.

My advice is to put some structure into your day.

Have a look at some of the free resources on this site for time management and improving self-esteem

I’d recommend also getting an ADHD coach to help you with creating this structure in your life because
1. It’ll be easier to create a daily routine with their help
2. We all need positive feedback

Best of luck
Brendan.
