    No one in my world understands

    Since the weather turned colder I am buried under my procrastinating. I have no motivation... It's worse than ever. I normally tan and that helps me almost keep the urge to hibernate away but I stopped because it's so bad for me and this is the worst it's been n YEARS. And my husband actually thinks it's me choosing not to change. When try to read the major symptoms and how they relate to me he says those things are all him too but he chooses to change them which then make some feel....

    Focalin Side Effects

    Hello all, I got tested for ADHD in October and found out I tested moderately severe for ADHD but did not have the hyperactivity part. My dad also has ADHD, he found out later in life in his kid 30s. I am a first year teacher and decided to try medication to help organize my thoughts as it was becoming overwhelming. I first tried Concerta but had terrible side effects including severe suicidal thoughts. (I also have clinical depression and anxiety and am being treated for those as well.) I then began....
  • 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.

    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....

    I’ve had ADHD sense a young age. I wasn’t put on medication until 15. I wasn’t doing well in school. At age 15 I definitely didn’t like the medication. But I definitely exceeded in school. I went off for a year in college and completely failed my classes. I get impulsive. I say things like “this is who I am and who I am suppose to be” I started noticing how I was acting, failing, and not able to do anything without acting out. I told myself to go back on and I did. Now I’m 24 (I’m also a female)....
