The other complicating factor is that I feel like I have ADD and find it extremely difficult to read or focus my attention. That is making school extremely hard right now and adding to depression. I know a doctor won't treat both at the same time so I think I need to work on the ADD to get through school. That will at least help some with the depression, I hope.
