  • 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. •....

    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?

    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.

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....

    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....

    Minor swelling and itchiness after Adderall wears off.

    Occasionally some spots on my feet will become slightly swollen and itchy during the comedown from my 20mg Adderall XR. It doesn't happen every time but often enough to be annoying. I've been on Adderall for 6 years although this only started happening in the last year. I only take Adderall 2-3 days a week right now due to all of my classes being on Tuesdays and Thursdays.

    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.

One month after using a CPAP machine, I no longer needed any medicine. The medication....
