    What is my brain?

    I'm 20, and I've felt so out of my depth in the world for the longest time and I'm starting to think my brain works in a different way to the people around me. I get completely restless when I'm not doing something stimulating to the point that I'll pick at my nails and squirm around. During conversations I often find myself trying to engage and listen to every word but something going on in the background of to the side of me just takes my attention away from the conversation....

    Am I who I think I am?

    Hi I am Cal and I am 17 years old. Recently because of quarantine I've been more self aware of the things I do than usual and since I have a lot of time I would search it up in the internet... Searching about the things I do that I thought my other friends and family don't really do I came across about ADD/ADHD... I saw how most of the symptoms I really relate to a lot but the thing is I could only base it in at least things Ive done from the past year... It's difficult for me to remember....

    Treadmill excercise and workout for burning fat?

    I've heard the most efficient way to lose weight with a treadmill is to be in the fat burning zone as equally as I am in the aerobic zone. (I think that's what they are called) Anyway, does anyone have some sort of resource that maps out what I should be doing each time I run on the treadmill? Suggestions are appreciated.

    Fluency/ADD

    Hi everyone, I'm creating this post to inform people about the incredible benefits Prednisone had for me 5 years ago in 2015. I was put on Prednisone because I had terrible hand eczema. What that lead to was how it improved my fluency by about 90%. My stammer was so bad that it caused me to involuntarily recruit my head, hands, and abdomen in order to get words out. After being put on Prednisone my speech was almost completely normal, with a significant reduction in my stammer. I then spoke to....

    Simultaneous Diagnoses 799.51 and f90.9

    My teenage son was diagnosed 799.51 (Attention and Concentration Deficit) and F90.9 (ADHD) in the same evaluation. Everything I can find online about 799.51 states that it excludes ADHD. I am trying to figure out what this means and the only stuff I can find says that 799.5X codes are for traumatic brain injuries. Can he be diagnosed with both? I was not present for the evaluation or even informed that it was happening (my ex authorized it and didn't tell me) and was only recently informed of....

    Untreated Adult ADHD

    I'm 47 and have lived with untreated ADHD my entire life. My family knows, I knows but my mother didnt want me on phenobarbital (1972) so I was never officially diagnosed. Just recently, I was finally diagnosed correctly. They had me labeled as bipolar even though I don't fit the S&S, we told them I had ADHD but I never let it drop because the meds weren't helping me... so I kept screaming but to no unveil... No one listened. No dr. until now ever even tested me. I'm scared and....

    Duolingo English Test

    Yes, you can attend labs for private blood tests. Its often good to visit a Dr first thought in order to prescribe the required test. I had several private tests done at Unilabs while travelling in Switzerland, which I simply paid for directly. The price of the tests was indicated prior to the sample being taken for approval.
