Hi g ! As is usually the case, I think what you need forst is to see a good local shrink for a thorough assessment and a proper diagnosis. Effective treatment can only be based on a good diagnosis. Maybe you have adult ADHD, maybe not. Meds might be helpful, as might CBT ( Cognitive-Behaviour Therapy ) a useful talking treatment. I'm sure you can be helped, but the assessment must come first. If your car started making odd noises under the bonnet, you wouldn't automatically put in more oil --- the problem might not be caused by lack of oil. First, you'd get a good mechanic to assess it and find out what needed to be fixed
