Hi, Welcome to JA. I am sorry to hear about your situation.
Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is a chronic condition that persists into adulthood from childhood. ADHD includes some combination of problems, such as difficulty sustaining attention, hyperactivity and impulsive behavior.
Treatment won't cure ADHD. But, it can help a great deal with symptoms. Treatment typically involves medications and behavioral interventions. You can fully function with ongoing treatment.
A combination of medication (like Ritalin and Adderal) and Psychotherapy are most effective for ADD
/ADHD. I advise you to see a psychotherapist who specializes in Cognitive-Behavior therapy (CBT) and ADD/ADHD. If you are resistant to counseling for ADHD, you may need at least a personal coach (a therapist who provides life coaching) to help you manage disorganization, attention, frustration tolerance etc..
The books “The Disorganized Mind: Coaching Your ADHD Brain to Take Control of Your Time, Tasks, and Talents by Ratey” and “10 Simple Solutions to Adult ADD: How to Overcome Chronic Distraction & Accomplish Your Goals by Sarkis” may be helpful.
I hope you get well.
