Confused My whole life has fallen apart

I've had a really hard last year. My father passed away suddenly when I was travelling overseas and I had to move back home with no money and no job. I was completely ripped out of the life I was living and dumped into my worst nightmare. I've been through a lot of hard times in my life and have always been able to pull myself back together...not this time.

I struggled on for 10 months trying to rebuild my life, and then I just snapped. Tried to overdose 2 weekends in a row, had to quit my job, have gained heaps of weight, lost most of my friends, blown through all my savings....

I'm currently being assessed for ADHD by a clinical pyschologist who is 99% sure that I will be diagnosed. Has anyone else had a similar journey as me? I've heard it's not that uncommon (particularly for women) for people to only be diagnosed after a massive life change. Has anyone been able to put their lives back together? How did you do it?
