hello, all my life, i have dealt with social confusion. my brain proccessing went haywire when i was approached by authority, girls and anything not expected. i day dream all the time. when communicating i get lost. my day dreams become my reality, and i **** people off, because they feel like i dont listen. i get embarrassed and stay away from people. this problem has limted my ability to thrive.
now i am 64 years old. i have advanced MS, mild atherosclerosis, cirrhosis of the liver from drugs and alcohol, and 4 years ago i dxed with major depression. i am currently taking 50 mgs of zoloft for the last 3 years. i always did well in school and the work place. but i never got close to my potential.
my wife passed 6 weeks ago, and i am now the single father of 2 teenage girls. i made an appt with my psych and asked him for help with my lack of focus. we agreed on a dx of ADD, but he will not treat me. says i am too old and too sick. i have become conditioned to challenge my drs.
sooooo, do i need a 2nd opinion.
