Hi there, at 42 I’ve just been diagnosed with ADHD. After years of feeling broken, useless and not belonging, it finally made sense to me and I no longer felt broken.
After having years in and out of jobs that are too junior (due to lack of confidence) and me getting bored, plus my lack of emotional regulation. I’m considering freelancing. I’m just struggling with the lack of motivation to get started. My hope was that I could get some motivation to get started and feel focused.
I’ve tried stimulants & they didn’t work and am now trying non-stimulants. The first lot of non-stimulants aren’t allowing me to sleep well and giving me mild anxiety, but I’m scared that the next lot won’t work either.
Has anyone had the same experience?
