Hi Bellis,
I am new to posting so forgive me if I mess it up! I am 63 and just diagnosed. I have had mental health problems since I was 16. Different diagnosis and overlap of symptoms are confusing. I am taking venlafaxine, quetiapine and atomoxetine (just started very slow titration).
To be honest I am anxious and sad about my struggles and possible missed diagnosis earlier.
On the plus side I have a husband of 37 year
s, 3 grown children and 3 young grandchildren, a dog and my little pet hamster.
Sorry if this post is all about me. With the adhd I need more advice than I am able to give at the moment but hope to be helpful to others too.
