I am a 56 year old Caucasian female. I have always had at least

Resolved Question:

I am a 56 year old Caucasian female. I have always had at least 4 "projects" going on at once. Completing any one of them was always difficult. I also have a tendency to procrastinate-putting everything off to the last minute.
I am menopausal and find that feelings of being overwhelmed, depressed and very anxious are getting worse. From all that I've read, I believe that I may have ADHD.
I know this is a highly specialized area and would like to know how I can get diagnosed.
I live in Tacoma, Washington.

Hello and thank you for your question.

 

You are wise to look into getting some professional support for these issues. You can visit either a psychiatrist in your area to seek a diagnosis and treatment plan or a psychologist in your area for a diagnosis and treatment plan. Some of your symptoms which are worsening could also be due to hormones, so you may also consider seeing your physician as well.
