Avatar f tn As an adult that has been lining with ADHD through my youth, and now have varying symtoms in my late 20's, and a very low paying service job with a high IQ and skills in drafting and CAD applications - my life still seems to be on hold - I have little to no motivation to keep me going towards goals of Post College BS/MS work in engineering and aerospace - I have always wanted to design and build the first Mars/Moon colony buildings . . .
284002 tn?1244547555 I was recently diagnosed with ADHD and after looking back on my life and seeing the impact it has had on me I'm very sad in fact I'm crying right now. I am in the process of finding an ADHD coach here in Boston. I started 200mg Provigil and felt a little "out of it" or "foggy" I had stopped and just got back on 100mg of Bupropion and .5 Clonopen. So I stopped the Provigil. Has anyone withADD - ADHD had any luck with any other medications or treatments?
Avatar m tn Career talk triggered a lot of future anxiety and stress (as in anxiety about the future, not anxiety coming in the future). But I guess that's reasonable, its a long, hard road ahead. Then went for a drink with coursemates, was mostly enjoying it. As soon as it was over, WHAM! Social anxiety everywhere. Aka, I just felt so much dread and worry over the interaction I had just had. By the time I got home, I was then too apathetic to start any of my project. I need to start my project.
535810 tn?1213459767 I don't know where to start. I am a single mom with two ADHD children. I have very little money and very little support. I have a 9 year old daughter i am losing it big time. She reads the bible knows the 10 commandments but she breaks each one on a daily basis. some of them several times a day. She does not honor me or anything I ask of her. She is doing unforbidden things with boys her age and younger.
Avatar m tn Children who are or have been on ADHD drugs have an increased risk of committing suicide.Even the American Psychiatric Association admits that suicide is the major adverse reaction of withdrawal from these drugs. Clarke reports that “symptoms usually peak within two to four days after withdrawal of the drugs although depression and irritability may persist for months. Suicide risk can persist for years.
Avatar f tn Jag har med stor chans ADHD. Ingen diagnos satt, men psykologen sa det. Var på NPF.mottagningen och fick resultaten på testerna. Gick bra och gick därifrån glad. Manga har tjurat idag och sårade mig lite, men annars okej. Spydde på kvällen.

5856747 tn?1403348682 Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder. ADHD. Prevalence. Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder or ADHD is today largely accepted as a bona fide psychiatric or neurobehavioral disorder affecting some 5-7% of children and adolescents. The prevalence will depend on the diagnostic criteria used. It was once thought to be three times commoner in boys than in girls though not all studies support that figure. About 50% of ADHD children will carry the condition into adulthood.

Avatar n tn At an early age (5-10) my parents were told by school doctors/specialists that I demonstrated typical ADHD symptoms. Throughout school, I was disruptive, inattentive, and generally off-task nearly all the time. Humility aside for a moment, I believe myself to be a very intellectual person. Despite my disruptive nature in school, I have always excelled in nearly every subject. Because of this, an alternative diagnosis for my disruptiveness was often cited as "boredom".

Avatar f tn It can be many things. 1. It could be his Teachers 2. It could be His School. 3.It could be something that is happen at home that maybe you don't know about. 4.It could be Children or a Child at School. Medicaly it could aslo be many things that would need to be looked into. But most Doctors won't check for other things,and Teachers also won't think of it being anything but ADHD or ADD and sometimes both and they may even add in Bipolar.Instead of cheking evrything out.
Avatar n tn m not too sure you would be okay with someone saying that about people who are ADHD....especially when people who are bipolar have some sort of ADD or ADHD...wouldn't that put you in the same boat as the rest of us? Secondly, if you dislike bipolar people so much, than why in the world would call this person a friend? That doesn't make sense. A friend is supposed to be someone you love because of who they are...not what disorder they have.
Avatar n tn I talked to a counselor about ADHD today and this particular counselor believes that there's a good chance of me having ADHD.

Avatar n tn I have been taking 40 for a few days now at least, and it's been going very well. I'm very happy with it so far. I have been feeling much much more "motivated", and am having a much easier time with initiation. The mental/emotional/whatever hurdle that is often there that makes it so hard and uncomfortable and somewhat painful to start anything is much lower now, and gone in some cases.
