You may want to post your question over in our Women's Health Community -- the members there may have had an experience similar to yours and can offer advice or support. Here is some information on the Depo shot that I found. It lists irregular periods and spotting as possible side effects. If you have been bleeding non-stop for the entire time you have been on the shot (and are still now), it would be a good idea to make an appointment to see your gynecologist. He/She is best able to diagnose what is happening and provide proper treatment options after an exam.
I am sorry that you are having to go through this with your closest friend as I know that adhd has a profound effect not only on the person that has it but on friends and family as well. I am glad to hear that he is seeing a therapist as this should benefit him greatly.
This slideshow about adult adhd may give you some good insight into what your friend is experiencing, and why he is behaving in the ways that he is. Just being there for him and making it known that you are there if/when he wants to talk may be the only way that you can help him at this time (I know that it is frustrating to think that you may not be able to do more).
Here are some behavioral strategies that he may be working on with his therapist that could help strengthen his interpersonal skills and that you may be able to help him with once he is receptive to your help.
Hang in there, I am sure that he need a close friend right now even if he feels he needs to go through this on his own! Please let us know how you both are doing!

It is not possible to diagnose what is happening over the internet. Have you seen a doctor or dermatologist about your symptoms? If not, making an appointment to do so would be a good idea. You might also want to post your question in our Skin Problems and Treatments Community -- the member and our expert on that board may have more insight into what is causing your darker skin.
