Previously, I have been diagnosed with Anxiety and Depression. (I'm 30, 31 later this year)

I've recently 'tried' to return to study and am finding it just about impossible.

I just did the quiz on this website and got 8/9 part a and 8/9 part b of the quiz:

Honestly, I don't know what to do anymore. I just want to kill my brain and shut it up.

greetings and welcome to the forums,

do you have any options for seeking diagnosis/treatment? sometimes, certainly, symptoms of adhd can present similarly to some of those with with depression/anxiety (like, inability to focus, for example), but those diagnoses are *frequently* comorbid with adhd, so you really need a professional to help you sort this.

do you currently have a psychiatrist/therapist you're seeing? can you broach the subject with that person(s)?

i'm sorry to hear you're struggling and i hope you find support and useful information here.

best to you,
-peri

Your best bet is to see a doctor. Dont worry about those online tests.
