    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?

    how might I approach the fact that I act like a 10 year old sometimes when I am 15.

    I am a 15 year old girl and my physical and mental aging process is slow. I am under weight and my body structure is also smaller than normal. I have been compared many times to that of a ten year old girl mentally. I am compared to a 11 year old girl physically. I want to start understanding how to act my age got any advice for me.

  • 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....

    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....

    I don't know where to start.. I'm 19 currently in college, I've struggled with a lot since I was in grade 8 or 9 or so.. a couple years ago I was diagnosed with bipolar disorder and then pre menstrual disphoric disorder. More recently ADHD, I'm not on any medications for that but I have been pretty stable on lamotrigine and nuvaring for the other things (though I suspect they need to up the dose or the lamotrigine). Anyways, for over a year I have done HORRIBLE in school, failed pretty....

    I am a 25 year old with severe ADHD and I am currently doing my second Bachelors degree. I have spent the entire year studying and working all day, every day but now I am on a holiday break and not having any work to focus on is driving me insane. I have tried doing different things but my focus keeps drifting to my emotions from previous interactions and other peoples reaction, I am being swallowed by the guilt of how my disease affects others and I cannot think or concentrate on anything else.....

    Do I have OCD?

    I hope I'm writing this under the right topic, I chose ADD/ADHD because there was no OCD category. Anyways, I have this thing where I have to do everything in even numbers. I even remember the day it started, I was pretty young and felt the need to close the freezer door twice. Then it spiraled into lots of other things like walking in and out of rooms twice, taking bites of things twice, turning lights on and off an even number of times, etc. I grew out of a few things but for the most it still....
