I met with my psychiatrist yesterday and went through a more detailed historical survey. She really assured me that she really doesn’t think that I have ADD as I didn’t have any or enough of the signs to indicate that I had it as a child.

She said that I have depression with anxiety. I asked well why is it that so many of the symptoms of those with ADD seem to match bang on with what I’m experiencing right now? She said that there is a lot of overlap of similar symptoms of ADDers and Depression/Anxiety/Sleep Apnea suffers. Some of the tricks and tips may work for me as well and encourages me to try them, but in terms of medical treatment, they are different.

She has switched up my medication from Cipralex to Effexor XR. I’m not too happy about the dependency issues that this drug can have, but I need to see if this one works better.

Thanks @blackdog for helping, I guess I continue on my exploration. I wish you well as well in getting yourself together.
