New to ADHD- Need Help.
I was diagnosed with bipolar disorder and medicated for it for the last ten years. I've been in personal therapy constantly as well, but I have only gotten worse. I developed extreme anxiety and panic attacks and a very difficult case of pessimism and self-hate. Recently, I was re-evaluated and diagnosed with ADHD instead. I began medication and am seeing a therapist, but I am not functional. I can't work, my marriage is under a lot of stress, I have few options financially, and I've developed enough anxiety to fear leaving the house or talking on the phone, and sometimes I won't even leave our bedroom. I feel hopeless and helpless to improve my situation or my outlook on myself or my life.
