That is why there was a whole controversy of women taking their children's ADHD medication so they could do their house work very fast and "diet" at the same time. Now that my son is off, he eats like a horse again but all very healthy I am not worried.
Avatar f tn Before I had children I didn't think ADHD was a real disorder. So u can imagine when all 3 children was diagnosed with adhd it was a real slap in the face. They got it from they father side. An I would of never guessed in a million years it was passed from parents to children. I have learned to love them for them. They not perfect some days are a challenge but its always neat to see the perspective they see things.
Avatar n tn my fiancee and I are concerned that his (my soon to be step) 6 year old son has ADHD- the issues are when ever thier is a non structured event- (play date, free time ect- his hyper activity goes above and beyond and it is almost impossable to calm him down. for example,after a full day in first grade, an almost 2 hour play date(s) (runing, climbing trees,playing in the mudd ect. we come home and he is still running around the house screaming, singing bouncing off the walls).

Avatar f tn // Since you mentioned, "if the discipline fits the crime." which is a really, really important concept. Here is a really good link on that.
Avatar n tn My 12 year old son has been diagnosed with ADHD, and my 15 year old son is possibly too. He has classic traits of ADHD but has never been told he has it.If you need any more information let me know. Thnaks in advance.
Avatar f tn Just realized you probably can't access this study. I tried to copy the important information, but its pretty hard to read. I'm sorry. the info is from the book - Medication Use during Pregnancy: A Concern for Women with AD/HD" by David W. Goodman, MD and Patricia O. Quinn, MD in Understanding Women with AD/HD , Kathleen Nadeau, Ph.D. and Patricia Quinn, MD (Eds.

Avatar f tn org/posts/clinical-update-use-of-stimulant-medications-in-pregnancy/ Also check out this site. There are a lot of posts by women who are going through or have gone through what you are. Some good personal information here. Finally, don't worry about drifting off while people are talking. Its what people with ADHD do. If these are friends, they will understand and just redirect you back.
Avatar f tn While they are getting better at spotting it, finding ADD in women is hard especially since we rarely have ADHD (with that hyperactivity part) so it is more subtle. I guess I am lucky to have a good psyc that I have been working with for about 10 years so we have that level of trust and partnership... When I told my mom, boss and some close friends, EVERY SINGLE ONE said "and that surprises you how?!?!?!
Avatar n tn controlling fidgeting, sustaining attention to boring tasks, completing and turning in work, time management and loosing their stuff. Young women with ADHD often primarily complain of trouble paying attention, though they can also have problems with impulse control (giving in to temptation without thinking--such as shoplifting, sex, cutting class or smoking).
737030 tn?1257662720 I was wondering how common FA was among women who have been diagnosed with ADHD. My Rheumy told me that FA could be caused by something stressful or traumatic, like an abusive relationship, an assault or something. Seems to me, ADHD-ers have the "rush", or "fight or flight" feeling very often. I'm wondering if having that physical response on a regular basis, whether the situation warrents it or not could cause a higher incident of FA in this part of the population.
Avatar m tn What to do after you just say NO to Ritalin when a child has been diagnosed with attention deficit disorder (ADD) and (ADHD) or some other learning disability. And even if you don’t, ADD is a growing problem that you should be aware of some estimate that as many as one in five U.S. children are on Ritalin that’s 6 million kids.
Avatar n tn Sometimes I have to leave the area or move to a different part of the room because I cannot concentrate in class. Is this ADHD ?
Avatar f tn It is also common for people with undiagnosed ADHD/ADD to self medicate. And women tend to be undiagnosed the most. You are also at an age where the elementary/middle schools weren't very good at picking up on ADHD symptoms. By the way, another very, very interesting link to adult ADHD is The adults involved really hash it out. Its worth checking out. If you do have ADHD/ADD it certainly will give you the feeling that you are not alone.
Avatar m tn I have never really thought about ADD/ADHD however as I didn't realize some of the issues were associated with the disorder. I would like to get peoples thoughts as to whether or not this list of symptoms seems to fit the bill for ADHD, or if perhaps it is something else. I clearly plan to see a doctor soon but would still like to gather as much information and ideas as possible. My earliest memories of these symptoms come from my elementary-middle school years.

Avatar f tn Actually there are a number of laws that prevent discrimination these days. The fact that you know you have ADHD is really important. Hopefully, you have gotten guidance on dealing with this medical problem. There are a lot of very successful people with ADHD, so it can be done. You might enjoy reading a book by a UC Berkley honors student with severe ADHD about growing up with ADHD.
Avatar f tn I have been diagnosed with bi-polar and I do see myself snap out alot. I handle everything (like most women) but I obsess about it all day and get sooo stressed out. I have noticed i have become a big germophobe and that is good to a point, cause then I get stressed about what isnt cleaned good enough.Im always coming up with germ protection ideas for my kids and my 5 yr old is even picking up on my germ habits,which is good but kinda scares me.
Avatar n tn From what i understand both sides of the family have to have some form of related neurological disorder . i.e OCD, ADHD, Tourette, etc. My daughter's father has Tourette (severe as a child, practically non-existant as an adult). I have slight OCD which runs in my family. I am sure at the next appointment with the ped neurologist the diagnosis will be official. I am just hoping and praying it goes away after puberty like it did with her father.

Avatar m tn I have two relatives, both wonderful, talented musicians and they are totally ADHD. In fact google famous people with ADHD and you will see having ADHD and being talented is very common. Its trying to do what you do in the normal life situations with ADD that's driving you nuts. The fact that you did decent in school, weren't a hyperactive problem causing boy, is probably why you didn't get noticed.
Avatar m tn I had many problems growing up and still do to this very day. I was diagnosed with ADHD when I was 14 years old. I started taking prescription medication at that time and continued to do so for several years. At some point I just decided to quit taking my medication. It just felt like it wasnt doing what is was suppose to. Where initially it did calm me down and allow me to focus on things it became to a point where it was almost like pure speed for me.
Avatar n tn How can I find a psychiatrist and/or counselor who knows both ADD in adult women, and Social Anxiety Disorder well enough to help a person who suffers from both to get through the Social Security Disability process? This will be in two parts because I exceeded the maximum length.
