HoW to help someone with depression and anxiety
Dec 03, 2016 - 6:30 AM - by Fuzzy12
So my mom is going to stay with us for a while and she's going through a bad bout of anxiety and depression. I'd like to support her as best as I can and so far the plan is:

1. Be patient. Be nice.My mom drives me crazy when she's like this especially because her anxiety means that she insists on me doing nothing (she gets scared when I drive, etc.. )

2. Get her involved and helping out with lil fuzzling (my little baby) as much as possible so she feels needed... [Read More]

Up and Down--help please
Dec 02, 2016 - 4:53 PM - by sluggish
Hi all,

I've found that Concerta treats me better than the other meds I've tried. However, I'm dealing with issues that are either from too much or too little med--I think.

Am I on too much or too little if my focus and motivation seriously declines and then it comes back a few hours later?

This morning, I started off really good, then dropped, after lunch it was great, and now it's bad.

Projects you've finished in spite of ADHD
Dec 01, 2016 - 12:11 AM - by thrownaway
Sometimes I feel like I'm only beginning to grasp the effects of this disorder. One recent realization is the chronic, impulsive starting of massive projects.

It seems like it's impossible to catch myself when I'm doing it.

What are some things you've managed to finish that you would consider a big undertaking? Have you noticed any patterns that determine what gets finished and what doesn't? How do you filter out the impulsive ideas?

Happiest when constantly busy?
Nov 30, 2016 - 2:41 PM - by castalia
Am I the only one who feels like this? Basically I am at my happiest in a crisis or when I have a lot of problems to solve. Being idle exacerbates my ADHD symptoms and I can't just sit around and do nothing.

I wonder if this is dopamine-related. Lots of people are surprised that as a woman I am so level-headed in a crisis.

Meds for Motivation?
Nov 30, 2016 - 11:35 AM - by sluggish
Hi all,

I miss being motivated to do things I love. It's not that I can't buckle down and do something when I need to, even though that can be really tough too, it's that I want to exercise, to read books (man, I miss reading books), to socialize, to write! These are all things I've had a passion for in the past--at times. It's always come and gone. I would like it to be a more regular occurrence.

Anybody out there had success with a particular med (and dose) that... [Read More]
