I can’t get my brain out of first gear. I don’t know how else to explain it. It doesn’t matter if it’s remembering things, or doing calculations, or involvement in everyday discussions, when the going gets complicated, my brain doesn’t seem to be able to respond. I have felt this way for as long as I can remember and I’m confident that 75% of what I’ve learned and experienced in life (40ish years) has ‘gone in one ear and out the other’ 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. I’ve been to a neuro-psychologist and psychiatrist and they’re trying to figure out what’s going on but as yet have not figured anything out. I had hoped that they’d say “I’ve heard of this” and I’d be on my way to some type of resolution. No such luck. They’ve pretty much settled on “you’re depressed and now you’ve got ADD”. They’ve tried Ritalin and something called Adderall but neither has had any affect. I’m thinking that I’ve just not been able to describe my condition in manner that they can tell what it is. It’s like everything that enters my brain must go through a screen first and most of it’s not getting through. Somebody please tell me that they’ve heard of this. Any insight or advice will be appreciated immensely. Thanks in advance.
