Avatar f tn Children who display ADHD and receive treatment can be expected to enjoy normal social relationships. It is untreated ADHD that can invite relationship difficulties. If a youngster truly displays ADHD, and the condition is treated with success, and the child still shows relationship problems, some other concern besides ADHD is likely present.
Avatar n tn I am a mom of 9 year old ADHD boy. He got diagnosed as ADHD 2 years ago. We tried different medicine on different doses; but the side effects really worry me.

2080300 tn?1349055553 Hi, I'm 44yrs old. I was put on Prozac at 23 and told i had depression. Anxiety, mood, racing thoughts got worse and somewhere in my late twenties I was diagnosed with Bipolar. I knew since I was 5 yrs old that I was different and hated myself for my unacceptable behavior. The meds calmed me down some, but I continued to be the obnoxious, irratible, always anxious and jumping out of my seat person I always was. Just a few years ago I met a couple other people who are also bipolar.

Avatar n tn My son is 11 years old. He was diagnosed with ADHD when he was 7 years old. He also has a learing disability. He is on 10MG of ritalin a day. He is very outgoing both personally and sports, plays on a team for basketball, football, soccer, baseball and skies. I am very active in my community, he accompanies me to many functions and people just love him. The big problem lies in long term relationships.
Avatar f tn I am also scared of this being passed down to our son because we have constant behavior issues. I honestly have to wonder if he had adhd or is he just reacting to his father that is emotionally unstable. At what point do I say enough is enough? I do not want to expose myself or our kids to this erratic behavior. His impulsivity is out of control. Its like he lacks common sense and is not capable of adult rationalization. Is there anything I can do to help.
Avatar f tn I have been seeing this guy for about two months now. he has stood me up two fridays in a row.

He said he wants t make it work, but i feel like he is just not into me. was he really sleeping or what ow i dont know what to do people. any body somebody what do i do?
1053561 tn?1256071178 A "piece" of a relationship is NOT better than NO relationship. I think this "relationship" that I am in is fading out. I think that is for the best. I do want love but I am not going to get desperate about it and make the wrong choices, trying to squeeze myself into a place where I don't belong because I have false expectations.
Avatar n tn I have been needing more support this week, has seemed like a very long road waiting for this last week to the appt. I want to prepare for the psychologists appt and looked for how to prepare. But am now avoiding that, maybe I will try to take it to Dr. Anne. I have reached out to some legal advice on reopening my divorce settlement. I have been very critical of Cedric this week and he is having a very hard time with it.

Avatar n tn Feeling lonely and frustrated with lack of a partner relationship. A forwarded message from Gabe with no personal word makes me wonder why he even bothers, yet answers why he is unable to have a relationship. I looked back at old emails to Mike. This is no road to pursue, but I am tempted. I miss the energy and laughter. Neil, the nice guy called. I haven't returned his call. This is no energy or chemistry between us. Is it worth pursuing? Negative feelings on that.
1174956 tn?1283742123 Why is it that I seem to attract that which I dislike most in myself. I fear abandonment yet I choose someone I knew would leave -- for China, no less. I fear the men in my life leaving me so I choose men who are unavailable...then they can't leave me, because they were never really "mine." Usually they are married. Russ, well, he is unsettled. His constant "hot and cold" attitude with me was not enough for me to walk away...and now I am trying too. I feel so lonely.
655503 tn?1281547766 I am struggling at the moment with my relationship with Jason he just doesn't seem to listen to me and I try to explain tio him about working and Bipolar and his reaction is when you work full time and get a job and why don't I just tell my psychiatrist that I'm going to work and he doesn't understand that its just not as easy as that.
1364495 tn?1293904753 For people who are sick I come to the realization that dating isn't an option. I wish it was and maybe later down the road it will be, but right now I think that what I need isn't something that anyone can give me. I'm so afraid that I won't wake up one morning or something will happen and I won't have done any of the things that I wanted to do. I can handle all of this I just don't want to do it alone.
282524 tn?1348489012 i wish i had a better relationship with my mom but we hav never been close. now that i hav childern of my own i would never treat them the way i was treatd as a child. my kids mean 2 much 2 me 2 walk out of their lives. thank god 4 my grandmother or i would hav been n foster care a good part of my childhood. im 30 yo & i would think by now i would jus get over it & mov on with my life. i dont talk 2 my dad either, he was only n my life 4 about 6 years & that was long enough 4 me.
Avatar n tn I have been searching for information regarding fatty acid dificiency. While reading a magazine I came across an advertisement for Efalex for ADD. It's selling point is fatty acid dificiency and it's relation to ADD/ADHD. My son is 12 years old. He weighs 58 pounds and is a peanut. Our doctor is not concerned about his size. My husband and his family are not big people. However, the Ritalin seems to cause his appetite to disappear.
Avatar f tn my boyfriend of a year and a half has had adhd since he was younger. he is 24 now. i've always known he's had it, but i guess i never really looked up the symptoms and what exactly it did to a person. we've had a lot of relationship problems for the past year. the first 6 months of the relationship were amazing. he was so into the relationship, he was always doing little things for me and bringing me little gifts and making me things and being the best boyfriend in the world.
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.
