For as long as I can remember (since a very young child) I have always suffered from anxiety, fear, feeling 'different', feeling inadequate. I have a history of anorexia/body dysmorphia, depression, anxiety, somatic symptom disorder. PTSD (I won't go into it all here).
Needless to say I have seen numerous professionals over the years. Been prescribed many medications. None of which worked. I have been doing some research and I actually think on top of everything I have adult ADHD. Probably always had it but it was undiagnosed hence never receiving the help I need.
I ALWAYS feel on edge. Constantly. I can not stick to anything. I break appointments. I overeat or drink/smoke...always an oral fixation! I am constantly worn out from this. I truly never relax. I wake often during the night. I have always been a very highly strung person (I have a rather unfortunate history which has possibly made me this way?).
Just wondered if anyone else feels the same and if they have been diagnosed? I am seeing GP this week to discuss. Now that I am middle aged one would think life would be calmer . It is the total opposite.
Thanks for reading. Thanks for any responses.
