I relate 100%
I recently took four months off and went into an intensive outpatient treatment program for depression and anxiety. All work related. I went back to work a new person. I was ready to get fired, as my boss couldn’t stand me. I don’t know what happened but she treats me entirely differently today. I don’t know if being out for four months showed her how much work I actually did, I just don’t know. I recently got my annual review and it was good. I’m in a bit of shock as my prior one was improvement required which is a sign they’re setting you up to fire you. The work place can be extremely toxic. Gaslighting all day long. I feel for you. Do what you can to save your sanity. There is hope. She actually complimented me last week.SimpleoneazParticipant
I take Concerta 37 mg, 3 times a day. I do not take weekends off. My psychiatrist doesn’t recommend weekends off as my ADHD doesn’t take weekends off. I seem to be doing well on it, I’ve been on it for a few years. It’s very common for those of us with ADHD to suffer with depression and anxiety so I can’t attest to it being the medication wearing off, but I’m not a doctor.
Those feelings aren’t fun, I live with these challenges too.
