    Hi there, I know how you feel. I was diagnosed last year at the age of 63. Previously my diagnosis was bipolar. Frankly I am still overwhelmed. Trying to reduce bipolar meds but basically I am still a mess!

    Hi there,
    I too waste time sitting on my couch. I find my ADHD harder to control when I am stressed or tired. Some days are a real battle.

    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.
