Bellis,

I know it is easier for us to think of all the hardships and things we missed out on by getting diagnosed later in life. But think about all of the things we are now able to do. I think that our adhd brains rally struggles to let go of the negativity and self-loathing. You should be gentle with yourself.

Hope you are adjusting to your meds. I am on day two (just got diagnosed) and riding the wave.
