Frustration with multiple people talking to me at once
Aug 24, 2016 - 5:17 PM - by Dachshund
I've always known that I don't like it when I have two or more people talking to me, especially if they're both asking me questions at the same time or extremely splitting my focus. In most cases, I can tune into one person and tune out everyone else. If needed, I would just explain that I could only focus on one conversation at once. Once I started medication, it got even better and I found I could juggle two simple conversations.

However, there appears to be one exception to... [Read More]

It's been a week since I was diagnosed with ADHD. Somehow I had always known I was different from the rest from a young age it's just that now there's a word that can describe what I felt , ADHD. I was prescribed strattera 60mg which messed me up pretty good. I had never been on strong medication and the side effects of strattera were overwhelming. It also made me feel like I wasn't myself. As a result went back to my psychiatrist to have the dose adjusted to 18mg and work my way up to 60mg... [Read More]

Saying I'm ADD feels like an excuse.
Aug 24, 2016 - 7:27 AM - by psychopathetic
I've been struggling with this since I got my diagnosis a few years ago.

Telling people I have ADHD-PI...feels like a cop-out or excuse.

But when someone asks me why I do things, or want explanations...I'm always so reluctant to say it's because of my ADHD. I always feel so guilty like I'm just using it to excuse my behaviors. So I'll say something... [Read More]

Annoyed with multiple diagnoses'
Aug 24, 2016 - 12:10 AM - by maysarieltiff
I don't know where to post this. I need to vent.

It seems impossible that I have all of these diagnosis'. ADD, Depression, GAD, bipolar, borderline personality, chronic hypertension...

I take 10 pills a day, including my multivitamin. I am tired of it. Sorry, 11, but I stopped taking the migraine one because, well, I forgot and now it's just been two weeks and I have only had two headaches...

How is it possible to have so many diagnosis'? Can't I... [Read More]

Need Help with Possible ADD
Aug 23, 2016 - 9:26 PM - by rvandervelden
Hello I am new to this forum but I have been prescribed 10 mg of Ritalin once in the morning and one in the afternoon if I need it for ADD.

So let me start off with my story, I have never thought of even having ADD but after being fired for the third time, I decided to talk to someone. I went to a career counselor and they did a learning disability test on me. She later told me that she thinks I have ADD because I told her, I was very impulsive, I don't think before I do or say...
