I have been suffering with depression and ADD since I was 4 years old and now I’m 47. Nothing traumatic happened to me to cause it. I just remember as a child feeling a since of sadness all the time and I did not find enjoyment in anything that most children found enjoyment in. I had a hard time in school with paying attention.. i wasn’t hyper, just easily distracted and lacked initiative. Stimulants help somewhat with the ADD but nothing helps my depression. Over 20 plus years I’ve tried every antidepressant plus ECT and Ketamine treatments. My depression is so debilitating that I receive Social Security Disability for it. I’ve been to several doctors and no one seems to be able to help. Some doctors say it’s a chemical or physiological problem or my depression is treatment resistant but if either of these are the case how do I find relief from my symptoms.
