Lesweet, I am 32. Also, no I have never been diagnosed with ADHD but I'm pretty sure I have it or some form of it, just never been diagnosed. I distract easily and my coworkers always laugh about
it. "Dude, can you please send me that e-mail I asked you for before your ADD kicks in and you forget again?" or "Ok man I'm not leaving your side until you send me that artwork I asked for because I know you'll forget"....These are common ocurrences in my workplace and thankfully I work with many creative and hilarious characters that are probably just as or crazier than I am. So it's all good.
Anyway, yes my p-doc is a psychiatrist and I also see a therapist. My psychiatrist recommended I take Lamictal on top of the 20 mg Lexapro and 1 mg Klonopin 2x per day I have been taking. I picked it up from the pharmacy but am still debating whther I take it or not. Tomorrow I am going to take the diagnostic tests for BPD and see how I fair. I doubt I am but I became so obsessed with it, that knowing I am taking the test tomorrow has actially relieved a lot of my anxiety already. Funny how that works right?
Also I totally agree with you about
male post partum depression, that's what I feel I have and my therapist does as well. She actually was asked to write an article about
male post partum depression for Men's Health so she has been really helpful about
that and believes all of this will subside soon.
I'm actually interested in reading your list of the things that are right in my life ha ha...thats only if you are actually interested in writing it though. I know I am blessed with many great things...sometimes what frustrates me the most about
this anxiety and the accompanying depression is the fact that it doesn't allow me to see what I already know...The blessings are there it jist fools me into thinking they are not.
