  • Being a constant disappointment to my loved ones and myself - a novel by me.

    I am a 15 year-old girl with ADHD and I am a failure. Or at least I am failing everything in life. • after years of my teachers praising how clever I am and having awesome grades without even studying, failing at every subject at school can be a bummer. • I think it's safe to say I am a wreck: I have spent the last week crying and sleeping while walking around the house, having emotional breakdowns over broken pens. •I have given up on 6 huge projects (and counting) in the last few months. •....

  • ADHD Loneliness

    Hi, I'm a teen and I'm going through some problems right now in my life. I have ADHD and I'm starting to connect most of these problems with my ADHD. For my whole life I haven't had any friends and I've been lonely because I have no idea how I should approach someone I enjoy being around and asking them to "hang out" or whatever.

  • ADHD Med side effects

    My daughter was diagnosed as ADHD two years ago. (I thought more ADD rather than ADHD because she just couldn't focus on school.) Seemed like every time we went to the doctor she was increasing her Adderal dose. In August the increase bumped her up to 30mg. Not cool!! I found out that she was self harming and had a plan to commit suicide. In October she told me she didn't like the way they were making her feel and refused to take them. I contacted the doctor and she finally was able to see....
