Avatar f tn I have been doing alot of research on ADHD lately as I think my daughter probably has it. While I was searching, I kept coming across sites about adult ADHD and I'm starting to think I have it as well.
Avatar f tn People with ADHD often pick exciting jobs that involve moving around and paying attention for short periods of time--things like being a paramedic or chef for example. It is also part of adult ADHD to be an underachiever, but again this does not have to last forever. Sometimes living at home can prolong the problems. You know your parents are acting as a safety net, and this can make you stagnate.

Avatar f tn I am a 26 year old mother. My sister is a general manager for a great company. She put a word in for me to get a manager's position at her store. My problem is the drug test. I will have adderall in my system. I have a prescription for it, so I am not worried about that aspect but I have never told my family that I was diagnosed years ago. If I take 15mg daily, how long will it take before it is out of my system completely?

Avatar f tn You may find it interesting, like I did, to take the Meyers-Briggs Personality test and see what type of natural personality you have become. ADHD does play a part in all of it, but we are born a certain personality and usually don't change with time. Here's a link: http://www.humanmetrics.com/cgi-win/JTypes2.asp I'm an ENFP, one of the 3% of the public that is this particular combo. So I guess my feelings of being "special" have some roots of truth? ha ha...
Avatar n tn Congratulations on trying to do something about what is going on with you. Well, the first thing you probably need is to get a real good idea of what ADHD or ADD is. The link on this site is pretty good. http://www.medhelp.org/medical-information/show/2157/Attention-deficit-hyperactivity-disorder-ADHD Another good site is - http://www.healing-arts.org/children/ADHD/ Meds might well help you - or not. There really is only one way to find out.
Avatar f tn A hyperactive child may blow through a test (and get them all right or all wrong). The ADHD child will never finish the test (at least until, they have learned they will always fail and they just give up or mark things that don't make sense). I have had kids that I gave 3 days to take a test, and they barely finished. Homework is probably one of the best clues. If most kids take one hour for homework, the ADHD child will take 3 hours and probably still not be done.

Avatar n tn Hello, I have just been diagnosed with Adult ADHD and I was wondering about some symptons that go along with this disorder. I am also a complusive liar and I was wondering if that is something that goes along with my disorder and I am seeing a therapist and I have voiced my concerns but I wanted to get another opinion. Please help me I am sick and I want to get better before I lose my family.
Avatar f tn Is their anyway that you can get him to some therapy without him knowing where you are going. With ADD/ADHD, symptoms tend to get better when you get older, but of course not for everyone. I have ADD and am 34 years old. It is tough even on meds. I am an argumentative person but have definitely learned to control it. I had to see a therapist to understand that I am the one that needs to be in control of what I do. You may need to step in and send him to a institution.
