OK, now I have it straight. I was thinking perhaps you had ADHD.
I have both anxiety and depression and sometimes it is very difficult to know which came first - the anixety which caused me to feel depressed is what I feel happened. My first experience was a major panic attack in 1982 and from there I was dx with depression.
I went back to school when I had 4 children at home and I know toward the end I had some anxiety problems that knocked me down but I made it through school and worked for 30 years without missing work due to my mental health issues other then 2 times for brief periods ( several weeks off)
What helped me the most was my psychiatrist and my therapist of which I have had 4 different ones over the years.
I do not have a lot of knowledge of ADHD but I do hope that perhaps another member will have some input for you.
I am here to support you so stay strong and keep on talking with us.
