Hey, I’m sorry that you’re feeling this way. All these emotions are complicated and difficult to deal with. I know that one thing that is helping me right now is reading this book called “The ADHD Advantage” by Dale Archer. I like it because it talks about ADHD as and advantage. There are negatives to having ADHD but also positives. Perhaps reading it a being reminded of the incredible things we can do will help? In addition the book also takes examples of the lives of people who have ADHD and lists the different coping skills that they use in the hopes that others with ADHD will find strategies that work for them to help them leverage their strengths. I hope that you can find more downtime and time for self-care for yourself. Wishing you the best.
