I canít get my brain out of first gear. I donít know how else to explain it. It doesnít matter if itís remembering things, or doing calculations, or involvement in everyday discussions, when the going gets complicated, my brain doesnít seem to be able to respond. I have felt this way for as long as I can remember and Iím confident that 75% of what Iíve learned and experienced in life (40ish years) has Ďgone in one ear and out the otherí as a result. I have low self-esteem and am intimidated by anything/anyone outside my comfort zone and I believe that this is also a direct result of my condition. Iíve been to a neuro-psychologist and psychiatrist and theyíre trying to figure out whatís going on but as yet have not figured anything out. I had hoped that theyíd say ďIíve heard of thisĒ and Iíd be on my way to some type of resolution. No such luck. Theyíve pretty much settled on ďyouíre depressed and now youíve got ADDĒ. Theyíve tried Ritalin and something called Adderall but neither has had any affect. Iím thinking that Iíve just not been able to describe my condition in manner that they can tell what it is. Itís like everything that enters my brain must go through a screen first and most of itís not getting through. Somebody please tell me that theyíve heard of this. Any insight or advice will be appreciated immensely. Thanks in advance.
