Medication

I’m 21 years old and only recently received medication for my ADD. My whole life I’ve been looked down upon, called names, been bullied, been taken advantage of, everything u can think of I’ve been through it. It’s caused me to feel terrible about myself which gives me anxiety, especially around others cause I’m scared of being hurt by them even if I have no reason to think that they would - so I avoid them at all costs. Which in turn caused my depression and suicidal thinking. I’m in the deepest darkest hole right now you can think of. But with this medication I can see things clearly now even though I still have anxiety on it. I mean who wouldn’t, thinking the same negative way about myself for my whole life has caused such strong pathways in my brain. But I’m sick of it, I’m done thinking that way, it’s gonna take time to see and feel change within myself but I’m not giving up, I’ve been through to much. Now realizing that I have a actual disorder not a “made up” disorder helps me not think that everything is my fault. And taking this medication helps me see that I do have good qualities. Im actually smart just in a different way. So with all that being said my whole life has been a constant storm, and I’m making it out alive whether anyone likes it or not. I will be successful at everything I do from now on, it’s gonna be hard and I’ll make mistakes but I didn’t go through all that pain for nothing. :)
