For as long as I can remember (age 4 and onward, at least), I've been suffering from stuck thoughts, complete dissociation/numbness and overwhelming and debilitating fatigue. Someone suggested that I have ADHD. Could this be the source of my struggles?

I wish I could provide an accurate response but I'm not qualified to do so. Those symptoms are consistent with more than one mental health issue which makes it hard to pinpoint - it might be any of them.

Those symptoms do sound serious. Have you been seen by a doctor?

Yes, and he offered me ECT treatment. I've done four sessions now, but nothing's gotten better.
