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.

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]
Larynxa told me that I can put a collection of songs that affect my concentration and mood instead of attempt in LIFT, http://www.sensory-therapies.com/review/sound-therapy-international-joudry/. I love her for that but I want someone to confirm her words.
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]
