    42 yr old male - Am I losing my mind?

    I have started taking notes on instances that I have had in the past couple of weeks. In the last year, things have started to become more frequent and is starting to really frustrate me. Sorry I can't sum up what is going on so I am just pasting in my notes. Thank you in advance: I have done this multiple times. I have locked the house to leave for the day and as soon as I get to the car, I don’t remember if I locked the doors and would have to go back into the house. Daughter came down from....

    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....

    Question - ADHD worse as getting older?

    I'm a 42 year old male. I was diagnosed for ADHD 10 years ago. It cleared up a lot of questions I always had about myself. I proactively studied the disease, I have seen professional help on a monthly basis since diagnosis and I have taken Strattera for 10 years. Over the past few years, it seems that my ADHD symptoms are growing worse. I recently got fired from my investing job. The heads of the group seemed to grow tired of my increased disorganization and my trouble focusing. Has anyone else....

  • Confused stressed worried about ADD

    Hello everybody, it's nice to meet everyone. I was told by my GP I was "highly likely" to have ADHD(focusing more on the inattentive, some but few hyperactivity) as a young adult. I just don't know about this whole process and everything.. I started taking ritalin 10mgx3 a day, which seems to be the standard starting medication. It worked for an hour but would wear off, and after telling my GP he gave me a generic of concerta, and concerta generics have a history of not working....

    Newly diagnosed adult- side effects question

    Recently diagnosed with ADHD after being on meds for depression and anxiety for nearly 20 years. Doc thinks I was missed diagnosed. I was on like 5-7 different meds and I feel so much better on the long acting methylphenidate that I am taking now! I feel so much more in touch with the world! I can feel my feelings- lol! Also, I have no idea how I got through life before this diagnosis and med change. If I don't take my stimulant I can't get over how hard it is to think at all! I'm kind....

    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....
