This is very interesting. Most adults diagnosed with ADHD feel guilt for all the mistakes they’ve made, or the relationships that failed, etc… You are feeling guilty for doing well, which I haven’t really seen. Maybe it’s more that you’re feeling some guilt for realizing that you won’t be able to prioritize some things in your life that you know/think you should?

Working through your feelings about all those (unwarranted, given ADHD) negative messages you received growing up would probably help with this struggle.

I Have ADHD. Now What?
