    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....

    Undiagnosed, Underage and Unhappy

    Hi I'm a 12 year old girl and I think I have ADHD. I can't sit still or focus and I'm having a lot of trouble in school. I have a lot of trouble paying attention and I miss important things in class. I also make a lot of "careless" mistakes and am really unorganized. Does this sound like ADHD? I've tried telling my mom but she just said stop "half-assing" school and that I just need to try harder. I'm trying really hard already and I don't feel good about....

    Pre-Workout Affecting ADHD?

    So I am a 15 year old boy and I’m starting to get back into working out. Me and my friends take supplements, but I’m worried because I am different then them because I have ADHD. I am worried that with my disorder, I shouldn’t be taking Pre-Workout, which I currently take. Currently, I take G-Fuel, which is the least caffeinated pre-workout on the market, but I wanted to get a tiny bit stronger one but I don’t know if I should be taking it at all, please help?

    Adderall makes me tired

    Hello. I have been taking prescription adderall for a while and have noticed that I don't get hyperactive from taking it, but in fact can most of the time lay down and take a nap. the first few doses I took seemed to help with my energy levels but eventually it stopped doing that. I take anywhere from 15mg to 20mg a day, and sometimes my last dose is late in the evening like around 4 or 5 pm and it still doesn't make me stay up late. I'm just curious if it is a normal thing for people....
