I’ve been thinking about my ADHD a bit and honestly there is a part of me that isn’t convinced on it for some reason. Even though I was told and found paperwork on mentioning of having ADHD as a little girl, nothing feel concrete. However, in my teen years I was misdiagnosed as bipolar and deal with depression. Now, I take medication for ADHD and nothing is doing anything anymore.
Regardless of the hormones or whatever, I still struggle with this ADHD thing even while taking medication. I do not want to self analyze and self-diagnose myself, but I need an actual opinion on my mental health.
The doctor I see for my mental health gives me anxiety and mixed feelings. I can’t deal with her and I hate myself for this, but I kept putting up with her due to fear of going back to searching for a therapist and a psychiatrist again.
Nothing is working even though I am taking ADHD medication. So, with my terrible insurance, I have to search even harder for something else.
In all seriousness, I might not have ADHD as I think I might do, I’ve been thinking and pondering the aspect of something else that hasn’t been touched.
I believe that I suffer from autism and I am of the high-functioning type. That makes more sense than the ADHD and upon research high-functioning autism in women starts off as being misdiagnosed as ADHD, bipolar-depression, borderline personality disorder, OCD, and etc.
I think I should reach out more and find a second or even a third opinion, but nothing feels right and everything is still a massive struggle.
