    My son

    I have found out accidentally that my son is taking Adderall. I assume it's for ADHD because I don't think he has narcolepsy. This would explain a lot. Should I bring it up to him? Or should I just mind my own business? Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks to everyone.

    Hello, I'm a 52 yr old mom of 1, grandma of 3 and just want to tell others that there IS help for adults w/ ADHD. I was diagnosed at age 40 and it changed my life.

    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....

    Concern about online WebMD Article on Asperger's Syndrome, how can I get someone to edit this?

    http://www.webmd.com/brain/autism/tc/aspergers-syndrome-symptoms#2 This article claims that many historic figures have symptoms of Asperger's, and that many people with Asperger's choose engineering with no cited evidence. Also, "symptoms of Asperger's" doesn't really mean anything, as anyone can be called autistic nowadays. Actual evidence shows the opposite, in which most autistics are unemployed ( http://www.npr.org/sections/health-shots/2015/04/21/401243060/young-adults....

    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....
