I really am at my wit's end. I am 45 years old and when I was about 12 years old my mother started noticing that I had some of the symptoms of ADHD. However my mother did not want to put me on any kind of medications. She was scared that would turn me into a zombie. So since then I have been living with ADHD and with each passing year it seems to get worse I'm now at the point or I can't complete a task. I can't even have a complete train of thought. I'm very forgetful. I don't have so much of the hyperactivity anymore but I do have the attention problems. I am only 45 years old and there's times I will forget that I have things cooking on the stove. I just can't seem to keep my mind wrapped around anything at one time. My brain always feels like there's a million things flowing Thru It. And I just can't seem to get my brain just stop and take a breath and just concentrate on the task at hand it's getting to where I can't even keep my house and I really do try. But I'm just all over the place. I just wanted to know should I seek out help with medications or is there another way that I might can get it under control. I just need to feel like I'm not going crazy.
