    ADHD & Inconsistency

    I am struggling with ADHD. Every day I seem to arrive at work VERY late, regardless of my attempts to arrive early/on time. My new manager (recent reporting structure change) doesn't seem to understand ADHD at all - nor does she really care. I am involved in a certificate program that runs one day per week for 6 wks. This program starts 1 HR prior to my scheduled work start time. My boss is also facilitating/leading this program. Due to some combination of fear of embarrassment, extreme interest....

    Eyes are STILL hella dilated from the adderall high. Now they're red af?

    So i got this "friend" who has been prescribed 20mg adderall ir tablets, once a day at noon ever since starting high school (though he doesn't take it everyday, just when he needs to). This friend decided to try and get high off his adderall, since hes smoked weed before many times. He took 3 tablets and crushed them up and snorted the first then the other two by halves, every 1/2 hour, to make sure he didn't take too much (he ain't THAT dumb). The thing is he didn't really....

    So I have known about my ADD since I was about 12 I am 18 now ... I never told anyone about it I never even put much thought into it I thought it was just not being able to focus.

I actually went up and read about it for the first time today, properly that is. I am the whole checklist of symptoms I'm sure and I am very worried it could....

    Dreading work everyday

    I'm a high school teacher and I was diagnosed with ADHD 2 years ago at 36. I am on my 3rd job in 3 years since coming back from childrearing hiatus.

I dread going to work every single day, facing the constant string of errors and missed deadlines and forgotten meetings, and the subsequent agitation of my supervisors. I spent time in psychiatric inpatient and day hospital twice in a year. I recently returned from the....

    ADHD child

    I have a homeschooled 14 year old boy. He has difficulty in completing his school work; he frequently says he cannot focus. He will often proceed very slowly. He is forgetful in other ways as well. My wife thinks he might have ADD or ADHD. She had ADHD and might be more prone to think our child has it while I might be biased in the other direction. His lack of focus on his school work is, in my opinion, his only symptom. He is, and has always been a very well behaved child. He is very emphatheic....
