It is known that as we get older (and sorry to say this, but for women as our hormones change) ADD symptoms can be magnified.

You probably had coping strategies that you weren’t aware of before and now tthey aren’t working as well?

Just a thought (based on my personal experience).

It sounds like you need to get a diagnosis one way or another becuase it could be a contributing factor to your depression?? Again, just a thought. Tiddler is right, you need to see a professional to inpick the ADD from depression. It might be that you have just had mild symptoms and now you’re noticing them. If all that you describe is totally recent then it may not be ADD.

Good luck getting it sorted and welcome to the forum.
