    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....
  • I have ADHD

    Hi i'm a 13 year old who is in middle school. I tend to always get lossed in my thoughts,I have one thought after another. People say i'm very intelligent for my age, but i believe that if they knew my struggles they maybe would think different of me . Im a huge procrastinator. so every night I have homework I never get it done until the next day in between classes. which surprisingly I end up getting it done and getting a A or A+ on it , (so yea i get the honor role) but I just can't....

    Elvanse wearing off, any ideas of what next?

    My son is 12 and just started in high school. Over the summer he changed from short acting methylphenidate (long acting doesnt last enough) to Elvanse and is on 70mg. He does really well til around 1pm when symptoms return and it is causing issues. Has this happened to anyone else? I am waiting to speak with his Adhd nurse to see what they suggest. Finding it really difficult and worried about what options there are for other meds. Grateful for any advice or experience.
  • Ask me a question

    I am 13 and have ADHD, I am on 54 mg of concerta. I am 13, but I know more about ADHD than most people twice my age. 13 is young, that does not mean I am immature. People on here post about newly diagnosed or they think they have ADHD. And to those people (and most other adhd people) a 13 year old telling them about it seems crazy. But age does not take away the fact that I have ADHD. It affects me the most too. Now skip through this because you have adhd. I will talk about various things and I hope....

    Too much concerta?

    Can I demand my Dr reduce my 12 year old daughter's concerta dosage from 54mg back to 36mg which she had been on? She complains about tiredness and not "feeling like herself" and is not doing any better in school. She's also a late bloomer and barely 80 lbs.

    I can't get help

    I'm a 17 year old m, I have suffered with procrastinating my whole life; and I also get easily distracted jumping from one thought to another. This caused me to develop insomnia because I always stay up till sunrise before sleeping. But my real problem is that I can't get a diagnosis, I live in a community that do not believe in mental health, which is why I am looking for ways of overcoming my ADHD without medication.

    hey

    Hey im just looking for people to connect with because although i have friends with ADHD, some of my friends dont and my impulsivity makes it hard to talk to them because i dont normally think before i talk and if they tell me to stop doing something i dont always listen so im wondering if anyone has a similar experience? or if someone else feels like their friends dont understand?
