Hi. I just received a diagnosis for ADHD inatentive type from a psychiatrist. I have been treated (on and off) for depression and generalized anxiety disorder for about 25 years. I only recently thought about ADHD when a manager said she recognized it in me. She has ADHD. I started to read about it and took an online test. The test said there was a high probability. After this I discovered the how to ADHD YouTube channel and started bingeing. Learning about ADHD made so many things in my life make sense. It explains why I am always losing things, missing appointments, forgetting what I’m doing, making questionable decisions, etc.
I went to my family doctor and she referred me to the psychiatrist. The psychiatrist confirmed depression and anxiety and added ADHD. He prescribed Wellbutrin and kept me on Prozac. I was hoping to try a stimulant med, but he said he wouldn’t presribe it because I use marijuana. He did say he would consider it if I could pass a drug test though.
I’m hopeful that I can start to live a better life now that I have a better idea where my struggles are coming from.
