ADHD and clumsiness?
Nov 25, 2015 - 11:05 PM - by LilBlueEeyore
I have always been really clumsy (always walking into stuff, missing steps, knocking things over, etc), and I was joking that I wish I could blame that on my ADHD... And it made me wonder if there is a connection? Do I just not pay close enough attention to notice where things are in relation to me? Does anyone else here have clumsiness issues? If so, does it get better with medication, or am I doomed to a lifetime of walking face first into doors?

I have been on Vyvanse for 3 months now, started off with 30 mg and has now been increased to 60 mg. As for the 1.5 months when first started, the Vyvanse was doing great and really helped me staying focused. However, that is no longer the case over the last month the Doc has increased to 40 mg, 50 mg and now 60 mg and still no long positive effect. Now as for the 60 Mg which I have been on for 2 weeks only works for about 1 hour a day then will make me feel tired and a little weird, also I... [Read More]

What its like to live with ADD

I saw the book "I always want to be somewhere im not" at the library and it jumped into my hand...the title was so perfect (and at the time I only sonewhat suspected I had ADD). I recd it to my sister to read (in truth she is probably an ADD leaner...maybe more)

I laughed so much reading that book. Wonder if such colorful anecdotes would help others understand.

Guilt ridden with Smoking
Nov 24, 2015 - 11:31 PM - by indianrunner
I was diagnosed with adult ADHD 4 years back. By then, I was addicted to smoking, alcohol and occasionally used Marijuana. The diagnosis happened because I was the best employee in my company but would mess up small details, like forgetting attachments in mails, or skipping meetings with the boss when it involved small stuff. I refused to take treatment as treatment was associated with a lot of side effects, but started taking better care of myself using a lot of coping skills that actually... [Read More]

Frustrated and at my witts end
Nov 24, 2015 - 9:00 PM - by Eris1028
I am a mommy to a 12 year old dxed with adhd-primarily inattentive--(athough his impulse control is horrible) major depression, high anxiety and disruptive mood disorder.

I feel like I am breaking from all the stress. He sees a therapist twice a month and a psychiatrist once every 3 months. He is constantly negative, sees no good in anything.

He literally doesn't think before he does anything. Example, he missed the bus so he decided to walk four miles to school down... [Read More]
