Re: I dont know how to handle my emotions

Which medication? I had a very hard time controlling my emotions before I started Adderall. I have ADHD. The main emotion I couldn’t control was anger/frustration. The Adderall helped a lot (less impatient and less frustrated) and I also saw a life coach who helped with the rest.

Re: I dont know how to handle my emotions

A lack of emotional regulation is a known issue related to ADHD, we tend to lack or not even have the neurological components that create a buffer between our actions and our emotions, as such emotional situations can seriously overwhelm us easily

Re: I dont know how to handle my emotions

I just let myself cry hysterically, even in public if I have to. I have no emotional regulation and I'm not going to be able to pick it up at this point in my life.

I tend to steer clear of anything that will upset me.
