    My ADHD led me to being a meth addict at only 15 years old

    I blame the doctors really. Pumping me full of all these medications that did nothing except make me different. I was about 14 when I discovered the amazing feeling of meth. I never felt anything like it. The hallucinations, being up for days, being skinny, feeling unstoppable and full of confidence. I didn’t really know life without drugs. Ever since I can remember I’ve been on some kind of prescription. I was tired of it. I felt like a loser. But once I started Adderall, then found meth, my whole....

    Concerta dose vs effect

    . I’m wondering if anyone else has been prescribed 54 mg of Concerta X 2 per day. I realize this is a high dose but I’m told I metabolize medications very quickly (this goes for all my meds not just the ADHA prescriptions). I’ve been on ADHD meds for over 4 years and have generally been very happy with its effects on my scatterbrained and distracted self, lol. I take my first 54 mg at 6am and the second 54 mg at 2pm. I get between 5-6 hours of sleep daily which is twice as much as I was getting for....

    Needing answers!

    Since I was a child I have struggled immensely with focus. School was horrible and because I didn't fit the cookie cutter way that the school system teaches I was always made to believe that there was something wrong with me. I was unmotivated, didn't try hard enough, didnt listen. I can't count how many report cards I received that had the comments at the bottom. Very sweet, funny and nice little girl who could do so well if she would just put her mind to it. I was tested at the recommendation....

    I am a superhuman

    I am a superhuman lifeguard: I have the ability to keep my attention on everything at once – shifting quickly away from everything that is not urgent. When I do find something urgent, an unsupervised toddler or a non-swimmer struggling in deep water, I can focus better than most on resolving the situation. In a dangerous situation, when every second counts, I keep a cool head while the people around me freeze. When something interests me, like first aid does, I am able to study hard and learn quickly....

    My experience

    When I was in 3rd grade I was diagnosed with adhd I took so many different meds until I found the right one. When I was in 7th grade my doctor told my mom about this patch called daytrana. It was great my mom could stick it on me before I even woke up and it made mornings soo much easier. As I got older I had to increase my dosages but sadly I out grew the medication. I tried probably 3 different medications and found one that worked for me as an adult. I took it for a while and then I thought I....

    Living with ADHD and extreme anxiety from a 15 year old perspective

    year 10s perspective on living with ADHD and extreme anxiety. I teach this boy. He has decided to speak out about what it is like living with ADHD and extreme anxiety. Please should you wish to share so together we can break down stereotypes and misconceptions. (Link at the bottom). This is because he wants to show people in particular the so called educators what life behind the label and judgement is REALLY like. However, most importantly "if I can help anyone relate, or stop them ending up....

    For anyone: adult, teen, or child, who just needs some comfort.

    If you're reading this and you have ADHD, I'm sorry for the long speech. I always skip around if I have a lengthy read ahead of me, and you all probably aren't much different. I tried to space it out a bit, and reading it myself, the space helped a little bit. :D I was diagnosed with severe ADHD at 5 years old. My mother always believed it was some type of "stigma" and wouldn't tell any of my teachers when I was a kid. She just recognized it once every three months, when....
