Unhappy Im introverted in an extroverted world !

Hey all

Im 30 years old and being quite successful in life but it was only within the past 2 months that i was diagnosed with ADHD and severe anxiety

I have been to the hospital and got a full check-up done including mri scans and blood tests etc and i check out great on that front which is a relief.

I always thought that my lack of concentration and boredom in life was normal, as everyone has bad unmotivated days right?

But now that i have been diagnosed with ADHD, it has been a learning experience this past 2 months and i always knew that i was extremely introverted.

But maybe too much introvert for my liking as i own a business and its been really tough, i have employed staff and just let them go due to it being extremely quiet .

But the tasks that my employees were doing, i am now doing 1nce again, but i cannot focus and feel so much boredom that i take a break every 15 mins.

Should i stay working by myself? as i feel with my severe anxiety, i am scared of people and i have had quite a difficult past with my childhood and people in general

I just need to be by myself constantly and i dont know why

Im afraid that i wont accomplish the things i want in life

I hate groups and i have social anxiety from bullying in secondary school .

Anyone feeling what im feeling right now?

Welcome to the forum!

I have definitely been there. Are you being treated with any meds. for your ADHD and anxiety? Treating my ADHD has also been the most effective treatment for my anxiety and OCD.

I still need an occasional Xanax but Iím definitely more equipped now to handle and control my anxiety better since beginning Adderall.
