Hello! Yes, I’m happy to report that I’m still alive, and don’t have any immediate plans to change that. I’m still struggling, but I’ve made some lifestyle changes (diet, exercise, swapping prescription meds for St. John’s Wort) that have helped me out quite a bit on my journey. Your life does not need to look anything like mine in 20 years. You have the advantage of having been diagnosed at a much younger age than me, and by the time you’re my age they’ll have made more discoveries about ADD which might help you. You have to remember too that you’ll have ups and downs along your own journey. Right now you’re experiencing a low, but what I’ve learned is that even in my darkest hours, there’s always something I can do to make progress. Be kind and gentle to yourself. I wish you the best of luck.
