    Stuck between ADD and Anxiety. Maybe both are happening at the same time. I am just beginning research on this subject so I’m (behind as usual)
    Recently was given Citalopram by my doctor for anxiety. Worked ok at first but now I think my body is immune to it. Recently saw a meme that said something like
    “Everybody wants all their ducks in a row…I have no ducks…I have squirrels and they’re drunk” Pretty much sums it up. I struggled in school barely squeaking by. They had me in special classes to help me along but it didn’t do any good. I feel over stimulated most of the time. If someone’s talking to me or I am trying to read something and there is too much noise in the background my brain shuts off. I will often fall off a thought half way through a task. Right now I know what I am trying to say but my 5 year old is talking to me and I am struggling. I have struggled in social situations my whole life. Never feel like I’m fitting in anywhere. This is to the point where instead of being myself (whoever that is) I adapt to my surroundings often adopting other peoples action and or mannerisms just to fit in. I have just come to realize all these things about myself as I drop deeper into this rabbit hole.

    First post here. This title hit home so I thought I would start here. No diagnosis yet. Just trying to figure things out. Volume is not as much of an issue as the many different sounds at once. (Chaos) My wife will be talking to me and I am trying to focus on what she is saying and then I hear the tv, the dog, a car drives by, the you tube video our daughter is watching then Hello? Hello? Are you listening?? She sees the vacant look on my face and she knows I’m not there so to speak. I wore ear plugs to concerts. Avoided crowds. Not fun at all.
