I'm wondering if anyone here can identify with my current symptoms.
Increased heart rate, extreme restlessness, inability to focus and read through a full post. I have music on as loud as it can get but will have to tone it down as my kids will be home from school in 10 minutes. I can't even sit through a TV show. I'm hungry but can't sit down to eat. I'm rocking and moving on my chair while typing.
I have ADHD, PTSD, and Bipolar. What is it? A combination? How much meds do I have to take to get better?
Hi, sounds like you are in a bad space. I get that way too, totally unfocused, hop from one thing to another, forget what I was originally supposed to be doing. Can't concentrate on anything.
I use a ritual to calm myself and refocus. I sit down in a quiet spot, do deep breathing until I feel a bit calmer. Put on some soft music, have a warm cup of tea or milk, maybe have a warm bath with lavender oil.
It sounds too easy, but it calms me to the point where I can focus and tell myself what I need to do.
If that fails I take an Ativan or two.
It is frightening to not be able settle enough to complete even a simple thought never mind task.
If nothing works, speak to your doctor.
Good luck, hope you feel better soon. Please let me know. (((HUG)))
Yours is actually the first I have been able to answer in a long while. I can identify completely. I cannot focus on ANYTHING. I rock too. I do NOT have PTSD or ADHD. When you get the answer please share!
