I’ve been struggling. I can tell that I have been losing control of my ADHD symptoms and it has been hitting me hard. My grades are falling, my friendships are hurting, I can’t keep up with work deadlines, my room is messy to the point it is not functional, I feel like I spend more time trying to do stuff then getting stuff done, and more things in my life are falling through the cracks, even the simplest tasks.
From the above I can tell that I’m losing control of my ADHD to the point it’s affecting my life greatly, but my problem is that I don’t know the cause of my problem.
A few months ago I switched from vyvanse to adderall because I couldn’t get my insurance to work with vyvanse anymore. So it could be that adderall is just not as effective as vyvanse. Or it could be an incorrect dosage of adderall.
I have also been feeling pretty down and anxious lately which could be side effects of the adderall, Or could it be that I have anxiety secondary to my ADHD that needs treated.
Maybe I need go to a couple therapy sessions to refine my management skills.
Or maybe I’m just transitioning into harder classes along with a busy lifestyle, and I am experiencing burn out.
I guess my question for everyone is, when you notice you can no longer effectively manage your ADHD, how do you pin point the culprit behind increasing struggles with your disorders.
