    Hi! I’m 41 and was also just diagnosed. I’ve been tor taking antidepressants on and off for the past 10 years because my family doctor thought my exhaustion and inability to concentrate was postpartum depression.

    My son has autism and was recently diagnosed with ADHD. The more I read about it, I thought it sounded like me. ADHD inattentive. I finally understand my childhood of daydreaming through school, hiding dirty dishes/clothes under my bed and never being able to find anything ever!

    I’m seeing a psychiatrist who specializes in ADHD and mood disorders who added Ritalin to the 20 mg Prozac I’m taking. It’s just the first week but I already noticed an improvement and hope to continue to see more of it as we adjust the dose.

    My coach/therapist helped me set some goals for managing the massive laundry piles and my overflowing dresser drawers which were seriously impacting my marriage. My husband thinks it’s a miracle that my drawers open and close now. 🤣
