I have struggled with ADHD symptoms from childhood (inattentive subtype) however was diagnosed 4 years ago, following problems identified fulfilling my role as a newly qualified nurse not achieving the required level of performance. Methylphenidate enabled me to fulfil my role. Looking back ADHD explains my past history.

I am 42 now, particularly during my teens and twentys I used to find I would get lost in quite bizarre strange and feelings for example I was a bit isolated and felt people were conspiring against me. It I was having difficulties with my studies

Expert:  Dr. Y. Vasavada replied 2 years ago.
Many adults having such problems due to past and continuing ADHD do find relief with drugs. Problem with studies is quite common and explained by diagnosis of attention deficit.
Now please persist and also see therapist for the allied problem you are mentioning.
May be there may be OCD too complicating the issue. Fixed ideas of persecution were your problem in past in teen-age stage.
