Emotional regulation
Jul 27, 2016 - 2:54 PM - by Jacksper
In the last weeks I have had some moment that were very stressful, and I reacted very emotional to it, and this did not help me.

I also notice that I can react emotional to very small triggers (internal/external), and this affects the way I present myself. I don't like this. For example, sometimes I do things very well, but because of the emotions inside I don't present my work with confidence.

These are new insights to me; of course I kind of knew this of myself,... [Read More]

Mental Tracing
Jul 27, 2016 - 1:04 PM - by Tetrahedra
When I was a kid, I realized that I would mentally "touch" every lamppost I passed when I was sitting in the car. Sometimes I would tap my toes to "touch" them, too. As an adult, I do something similar while I drive, but I also now mentally "trace" objects in a room, or on TV, or on the computer. Often I flick my tongue or move my toes. It's fairly constant, though if I'm actively doing something, I'm not doing it.

It doesn't cause me any distress now, though it did when I... [Read More]

Starting on Strattera... Advice?
Jul 26, 2016 - 8:26 PM - by cyberentomology
Starting journey with Strattera, and as a guy, I'm a little apprehensive about the "sexual side effects" I keep reading about. I've got a pretty strong libido, and wife doesn't, so maybe this will be a good thing?

Also hoping I get some of that "reduced appetite" side effect going on - I could really stand to lose several pounds.

Those of you on Strattera who are physically active, did this help or hurt, or no effect? I study/practice martial arts which helps my... [Read More]

ADHD and hobbies
Jul 26, 2016 - 7:24 PM - by Stev'o
So, when I was in grade school, I don't recall that kids were being diagnosed as having this. I remember continually drumming on my desk. Loudly. And I had no idea why the teacher would stop, in the middle of her lesson, glare at me, as I continued my jamming to the endless stream of music. This led to my first hobby of drumming. I say hobby because I just never took it to the next level. Even though now, I am pretty good.
My other hobby, wood working. Lots of power tools. Yes, one... [Read More]
