Ladies, the struggle is REAL. LOL. Seriously, we are not alone. There are tons of us with similar stories. I’m 48 and didn’t have any clue why my life was a mess until my son was diagnosed! Now I am on medication and also working with an ADD coaching program (ADDventures in Achievement with Dr Barbara Cohen). All of it is helping. You have to speak up for yourself; go to a second doctor if one doesn’t LISTEN to you. One thing I’ve learned in the program is that depression and anxiety are often the result of undiagnosed ADD.

So hang in there and definitely keep reading articles on this website — I have found so much helpful information here. Good luck!
