Im a highschool student in canada with ADHD and i live on my own renting a room and i dont have a job and rely on money from the government. I have insomnia and I have had other sleeping disorders I have been living away from my mom for about two years now and I have been under a lot of stress. I cannot wake up in the morning and every night i have vivid and sometimes disturbing dreams. I dont have a lot of money after i deal with my expenses and i have terrible time management and i usually go the day with only one meal. I have anxiety and i have had anxiety attacks many times before. There are other things that I have noticed that i cant remember right now. But what I want to know is is my health at risk and can i return back to the attentive and helthy person i once was. My name is william dean and my email is email@example.com please let me know i really need answers.
You are probably not living a healthy lifestyle. And living a healthy lifestyle doesn't mean having to do a lot of expensive things and diets, etc. One of the most important ingredients is to take care of stress. A lot of your current problems seem to be associated with stress. Please make sure you eat healthy and adequate.
Depending upon if and when you started the ADHD treatment, your attentiveness will increase gradually. But a major part of the recovery lies in your own hands. I'm afraid I can't give you any specific solutions here, as more interaction is needed, but you may consider talking with a counselor in person to sort things out.
Hope this helps. Take care.
