I’ll admit that I loved it when my psychiatrist said that he felt I was classic ADHD a few months ago. That felt good.
It felt good that I wasn’t told no, it’s just depression, here are some anti-depressants and be on your way, as I’ve been told in the past. I also appreciate that the doctor is conservative with medication. However, I wonder….
“Last month was just not good,” I told Dr. W a few weeks ago at my appointment.
“Why?” he asked.
I told him stress over my health issues. I told him that nothing was getting done.
The doctor wants me to wait 2 months to come in again and resolve what’s bothering me before he considers other medication. I respect that-and did until last night.
I just spoke with the doctor today because I’m wondering if I may need to come in sooner to discuss other medication. One doctor felt I may be bipolar. He thought that was jumping the gun a bit. I feel I may need some help with anxiety though. Ohhhh, that has been through the roof lately.
I agreed to track my moods until my next appointment and also call him if I feel worse. He apologized that he didn’t ask more questions when he first began treating me.
It’s hard to accept that ADHD may not be my only problem. I have to though in order to be a functioning member of society.
How many of us have other issues besides ADHD? I’m curious.
