Watches for Kids with ADHD
Jul 29, 2014 - 1:26 PM - by sanitynow
Has anyone had any luck with using watches (just regular wrist watches with alarm functions) to remind your kids to pay attention in class or to do certain tasks? If so, which watches have you tried?

Thank you!

Stress and anxiety
Jul 29, 2014 - 7:20 AM - by Fuzzy12
It's just not letting up. I know more or less what triggers are stressing me but I don't understand why they are stressing me so much. It's just not justified. And this time it's definitely not PMS.

Could dexamphetamine be making it worse? I wouldn't have thought so since usually I feel calmer and more relaxed after taking my... [Read More]

Losing Stuff
Jul 28, 2014 - 9:51 AM - by willow129
I don't have time to write a long post but

I lose things a lot, always have, and my response nowadays because it happens so often is "oh well, it's just a thing, I'll get a new thing someday"

But my boyfriend is extremely money conscious and gets super uptight when I lose things and then he feels like we'll have to buy a new one of those things. He feels like that's a big waste of money.

So the most recent lost item is my raincoat which I left on a... [Read More]
