I am so happy I have joined this forum. I’m 63 and wonder how I ever made it through life. I’m female and a retired RN. (fortunately, I was hyper focused in caring for patients.)

I’m being treated with antidepressants and most recently have been put on Ritalin. My days are more focused though I’m still not like folks that do not have ADHD. Before Ritalin, it would take me, without exaggeration, almost an entire Saturday to pay my bills. I’d say about 5 hours. Now it takes me 2 hours. For only having 8 bills to deal with, I’m working on bringing this down to an hour. Even using bill pay it’s still a struggle….check, check and recheck….fearing I’m going to make a mistake.

I wish everyone well on this journey. I’m sure we can learn a lot from each other.

Linda
