    Ok, I had a very exhausting day yesterday, trying to get my doctor to understand that I want to come off the Focalin xr that I have been taking for about 4 months now!!!! It’s just not going to work! So, I don’t have a appointment with her until 1 week & was asking her just this one time to write me a refill on it!!! Due to trying to get Focalin…[Read more]

    Most times I feel like an outsider when in social situations with Employers and Co-Workers.

    Anybody else have this issue too?

    Any ideas to help out with this issue?

    I look forward to hearing from anybody.

    • Other than my family I have no social life at all. At work I have always felt like a fraud and really don’t feel like anyone would be interested in me anyway. I know that the low self esteem is a symptom of the ADD and is something I have to work on. For me it will take counseling. Lots and lots of counseling.

  • For what it is worth: my own take is that after seeing my ‘normal’ and how clear I could feel with medication, the sudden lack of it, and my dealing with that alone, lead to a secondary issue: Depression.

    • May I ask what happened with your Meds? I understand what you are saying, completely!!! My issue was Depression until I was diagnosed and began taking the meds that I have now.

  • I am stuck. I’m not sure I even know what to say here….and if I say it, will it make sense? Will I ramble until anyone with a semblance of interest, looses interest 5 lines in? I have no clue. But I am stuck. I […]

    • This use to happen to me a most of the time. It still happens at times now, even with the Meds, ”but it too will pass”!

    Today was one of those days that I should have put an ”OUT OF ORDER” sign on my forehead and ”CALLED IT A DAY”!

    • Yes, I have read 11 books on ADHD, and these ones I own. I have also read approximately 6 more from the Library. There are many more out there that look interesting. I do try to find them at my local Library first and read them. Then if I find that they would be useful to me I will purchase them to add to my collection. I do find each one has…[Read more]

    Well, my ADHD hates me I think. It has been keeping me up all night with random thoughts and projects that must be done right at that second! I take my meds early enough in the day so that shouldn’t be the problem. I think my ADHD is medication resistant some days lol

  • For some people with Anxiety, traditional ADHD meds can be intolerable, so this is not as uncommon as you might think. Sounds like getting the anxiety under control is critical before trying ADHD meds again — and […]

    Hi Everyone. I enjoyed everything I have read here. I was diagnosed in 2008 at 40 years old and it wasn’t until 2016 that I got serious about trying to live with my ADD. I have new meds, Adderall and Guanfacine, […]

    Hi Everyone!

    Just looking for some ideas. Diagnosed with ADD (Inattentive) at age 40. Finally after not being able to keep steady employment I researched meds and went back to my doctor with evidence. Am now taking Guanfacine for frustration and Adderall for focus. They have been working great.

    Right now I have been laid off from one employer,…[Read more]
