Hello! I am a 21 year old woman from Brazil. For the majority of my life I have always felt there was something “wrong” with me, but no one seemed to be able to figure it out. I was a quiet, friendly and helpful kid, a bit shy but never had difficulty making friends. As I got older, I started missing deadlines in school, leaving things to The last minute, procastinating and leading a disorganized life overall. When I was 14 years old, I was diagnosed with depression and anxiety and was put on a lot of meds; i was often suicidal and was so medicated in my teenage years that I don’t remember most of them. Last year however, when I was 20 years old, I made the decision alongside my doctor to gradually stop taking my meds. The process was one of the the hardest things I ever went through but I knew I had to do it. After a while off my meds, I knew I was no longer the depressed person I considered myself to be during my teenage years, but other things like my anxiety and compulsive thoughts got way worse, besides never being able to keep a routine, feeling like I couldn’t do basic tasks and having the same organization problems as always. This year I finally decided to get to the root of the problem and do a neuropsychological evaluation. The test results were confusing: the doctor said I had all the symptoms of ADHD, besides the hyperactivity, so she diagnosed me with SCT (Sluggish Cognitive Tempo). The studies behind it are controversial and the treatment is also incertain: the standard ADHD meds might work for me since I have most of the traits, but they also might not. I guess yet again I feel a bit lost and hopeless, and alone. I was wondering if anyone else identifies with SCT or has any experience with it and is willing to share!
