Having depression anxiety and adhd is the worst mental illness cocktail I’ve been SERVED. Right now my depression is kicking in hard and I don’t want to be around anyone and I don’t want to do anything. My adhd is making me want some sort of stimulation but I have 0 motivation to move. My anxiety is high because I’m not being productive. My routine is out of wack. I hope my depressive episode doesn’t last for long because I have tests and projects within the next two weeks. & you would think I would take this time of doing nothing to study but nope my brain just won’t allow it lol. Yk ur down bad when ur adderall can’t even make u productive. I mean Atleast I wrote out my experience on this post instead of continuing to stare at my wall, that counts for something!!! I’m basically just sitting on my couch aware of all of it but don’t have the energy or motivation to do anything about it. Love that for me

      @theMeg yes! I feel like the honeymoon stage has worn of rather quickly for me, it’s been a little over a week and I feel like I’m struggling again- I’m hoping it’s just because I was started on a low dose though.

      I relate to this so much!! The ADHD paralysis, along with everything else is the worst.

      this is how i feel but right now i’m just diagnosed with the anxiety side of things… depression and anxiety cause me to self isolate but the adhd causes my brain to either go in overdrive or do absolutely nothing. i feel like i can’t feel anything anymore except anxiety

      I can relate to this! It's like your ADHD makes you not get things done because you keep getting distracted but then your anxious about not being productive and you are depressed that you are doing nothing with your life🤦

      I am 1000% with you! Procrastinating until the deadline is my specialty unfortunately. It's the only thing that pushes me to be productive 😬

        @brabbit i literallt always wait til last second too but Atleast I always get everything done!! As long as I don’t completely forget about it lmaoaoo

      I feel this. I dont every have a break because if one thing is not acting up one day something else I'd. There is no not feeling off about something. And often times things are bouncing off esch other. I feel like it's my body and my mind but I'm just along for the ride

        @KittyRosa literallt same, I never get a break 😩

          @ChloeMae I mange ... try to.. most of the time. The worst is other people who refuse to show any sympathy. I am currently having to bite my tongue from someone who said a phrase "your home all day so you have all the time to get it done" I'm like live in my head a day and then tell me that 😁🤪😫

      Never related so bad to something lol

      I can certainly relate to this feeling. My mixture of severe depression with insomnia, pain, and chronic fatigue, but then having anxiety, ptsd, and some ocd tendencies make me feel like I need uppers and downers in the same day. Journaling or posting like you did is an excellent idea to process your feelings. I like using the notes app to journal, as it makes it easier for me then trying to sit down with the traditional pencil and notebook setup. Sending love and light your way ❤

      I relate to this so much!!! I just started aderal this week so I think I’m still in that honeymoon stage with it, but before this week I was so miserable all the time because my adhd made me unproductive, my anxiety made me worry about all the work I had to do and my depression made me hate myself for it

      • theMeg

        522d

        @Philosophia omg that honeymoon stage makes absolute sense. Just got prescribed and it's been about a week

        @Philosophia yeah I’ve been on adderall for years now but i feel like I have hit the plateau with it!! Like if I go up higher it’ll just make my heart go too crazy, give me more anxiety, & insomnia it SUCKSSS
