I can so relate to what you are saying. I didn’t realize many of these things until I started taking medication (what it was like to not have all of these emotions welling up inside).  My husband would always say I took things too personally and was too sensitive.  When I found out about my ADD, it made sense to me. I took medication for a year and have been off of it for 2 months. I’ll probably go back to it.  Still trying to figure it all out.  I do spend a lot of time in prayer and meditation.  That seems to help.  I also journal a lot and see a therapist who specializes in ADD.

Yes, it is frustrating.  Be kind to yourself. I think you’ll find the right balance in time.  You may have to accept that taking medication at a higher dosage than you want is what your body requires.  Curious to hear others comments.
