    Does ADHD normally have an impact on your romantic relationships?

    So, I'm 15 years old, and I have severe ADHD. I have had the diagnosis since elementary school, but I still have unanswered questions that I don't know how to ask. Fortunately, there's the internet, so here goes: has your ADHD ever impacted your perception of relationships or your readiness for them? Example, when I found out that one of my guy friends was interested in me, I completely re-assessed our friendship. I started to feel like I felt the same way, but the feeling came and went....
  • 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. •....

    The connection between ADD and sleep apnea

    A search on WebMD for "connection between ADD and sleep apnea" produced no results. There were separate results for ADD and sleep apnea, but none for a relationship between the two. That's why I shared my story on Facebook, at https://www.facebook.com/notes/jay-spencer/tear-down-this-wall/2072634689430553/ Short version: 20 years after my diagnosis with ADD (at age 49), I was diagnosed with sleep apnea. One month after using a CPAP machine, I no longer needed any medicine. The medication....
  • 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. When I was a kid I couldn't control my ADHD as well as I can now, and I got in fights a lot. This lead to nobody wanting to be around me....

    ADHD

    I recently discovered that I have adhd, halfway through my highschool education. I am slightly concerned because before I started taking medication my grades were suffering. I was taking the highest level classes I could. Since I began taking medication, my grades have increased substanitally. How do I let colleges know that that is what happened? Or is there even a way for them to understand how this impacted my grades?

    Getting Re-Prescribed ADD Medication?

    I was diagnosed with ADD when I was 14. I was prescribed Concerta, and it seemed to work good. Right about when I was 18 maybe a little sooner It was switched to a generic version because generics were approved or whatever the reason was so Insurance would only cover the generic. My dose was 36 mg of Concerta and it switched to something else not sure the name but it was only like 9 mg of something. I stopped taking it before my second 30 day prescription was up. It wasn't doing what it was originally....
