Hey Guys! ♥️ I highly recommend watching the YouTube channel How To ADHD. It’s super relatable stuff and the person who created the channel helps give really good tool to work through and manage different things that come along with ADHD. I found it extremely helpful! I hope this helps anyone who needs it. Also, remember that it’s okay to be different. Our brains are the same as anyone else’s they just work and process differently. 🧠♥️😊 Keep up the good work! You are not alone in this. 😌💯

Life with Add and Addiction Issues. I’ve struggled with add since I was 6 but was not diagnosed until last year. I had a hard time in school. I could never pay attention and never knew why I was the way I was. Very shy and awkward. I started to self harm at the age of 12 and engaged in risky behaviours. I ended up dropping out in grade 11 due to drugs and alcohol. my anxiety was so bad when I did go to class. I usually would skip because I was so scared to be judged by others if I ever had to speak in class. I never felt good enough and always over thought everything and isolated from the world.. using subastances helped me to escape and cope with the world.. I didn’t know another way. I’ve been in and out of treatment centers for addiction and struggled a lot to find out who I am. I’ve endured sexual, mental and physical abuse along the way and did not caring about my body or what happened to me it got very bad and put myself in very scary situations . I got to a point where I didn’t care if I lived or died..I can now say i am way happier sober I still have lots to work through but I am now in a sober living apartment and doing my GED. I’m nervous about school because i never think that I’m good enough but I find that school is easier this time around. I was prescribed vyvanse which is helping me to stay focused but I’m still lack motivation and procrastinate a lot . I pray things will start to look up and I’ll have a brighter future. Looking for advice on build stronger relationships Dealing with anxiety depression and adhd

Hi everyone! I’m looking for a ADHD-buddy. I recently got diagnosed and finally understand where my struggle in concentration and ‘starting on something’ comes from. I’m looking for someone who can check in with me every now and then. My biggest challenge is being honest, as I am used to lying about everything to hide my issues. I want to live without the stress and without the self harm and lying to others. Anyone who can relate and/or who wants to buddy up?

Suggestions? Advice? - Exhausted to find words to talk, Kirsten even to talk is draining.. - Struggle to communicate emotion - tinnitus turned up.... - don’t write - struggle to find the right words - reading is even a challenge as my 👀 eyes don’t always work the best (focus issues).. Yet sometimes I feel like I am screaming on the inside...

For those currently taking medication, how do you deal with the personality change and not being as “eccentric” as you use to be?

Someone with ADHD (adult) what do you do to deal with it and handle it? It's an hard time for me and I can't concentrate on anything I'm unable to read a book even cause I can't concentrate on anything neither a good TV show or YouTube video or music, it's exhausting.

I’m feeling very disrespected by my fiancé. He does na meetings and we used to use together.. he’s been clean almost 3 years. He doesn’t know that I am back on my adhd medication.. if he did he would probably use it. Just feeling alone and I think I am over our relationship.

Warning. Venting. This may get long. (ADHD is a very recent discovery for me.) I grew up really thinking my mom was one i could turn to when I had mental health issues. That she understood. Boy was i wrong! The crap she says about me...a severely depressed and anxious ADHD adult... Makes me want to cry on the regular. And when I recently started discovering my ADHD symptoms and trying to talk to her she just dismissed it. Oh, I was never hyper. I did good in school. I'm just too lazy. So these reasons i don't have ADHD. She will research any physical disease you may have until she knows more than the Drs. But this? Nope. I try to explain the signs and explain how it actually effects me... She tells me I'm just lazy. One day she just comes out "why do you care about this so much? What does it matter?" What does it matter? What does it matter that I'm finding out there's a real medical condition that explains why I'm so "lazy?" What does it matter that i could get some help and maybe finally fell like a functional adult? The rest of my family and most of my friends don't understand mental illness. I feel so alone! Like nobody understands me. I have nobody to talk to. I feel like I'm on my own with my mental health. It hurts so much! I'm so tired of pretending I'm ok, just so i don't have to listen to others bitch about it how it's all in my head or everyone has issues and I'm not special. I'm tired of being dismissed just because you can't "see" my illnesses. I'm tired of carrying all of this alone.

Something told me not to tell my dad i was diagnosed ADHD. He never understood mental health issues. But i time him anyway. My mistake. I really wasn't surprised when he said "you just need to change your thinking. Don't let them tell you your brain is broken." Let me tell you, this comes from the man who also said "you shouldn't be on antidepressants. Why would you want to take something that alters your brain chemistry?" 🤦 I just want to find support in my family! Ugh

Morning guys. So in a moment of madness i started writing about my sister. She was a stillbirth and i was there for her birth. She would have been 7 now. And this is what I’ve wrote so far…. Eliza Charlotte Rebecca Cox- My story I guess since you are reading this then you are interested in knowing the heartbreaking truth of what we went through on 14th May 2014. I’ll start with who i am and why I’m writing this. My name is Charlotte Burton and i am the big sister of the beautiful baby who came into this world sleeping her name is Eliza. And why am I writing this? Well lets begin from the start. I still remember the day my mum told me she was pregnant. I remember the excitement and wishing for this time its a girl as I already had 3 brothers. But i also remember being a bit sad in a silly immature way because I’m the oldest and at that time i was only 20 years old still trying to figure life out. And the only thing i did know was that i wanted my mum, and having another baby I’d be pushed to the back of the line for her attention. I mean I wasn’t needy i was just urm.. craving a lot of reassurance i was at that age of not knowing where my life was going and the only stability i had was my family. So to say i was scared of being pushed out when mum told us she was pregnant then yes i was feeling a whole lot of insecurities. But that all changed when for the first time mum found out the gender and came home and told me I’m finally going to have a sister. I mean i love my brothers but to have a sister that’s a whole different level. It’s weird a lot of siblings row about who’s wore an item of clothing or who stole their make-up or even used all their perfume. But i was excited for that! I finally was getting that chance for that to happen to me and I couldn’t wait, I remember telling mum I can’t wait for her to steal my things or for her to ask me to dress her or do her hair i was just so excited to finally have a sister to share everything with. And from the day i knew i was getting a sister my whole attitude changed i was probably over excited. Mum got so big in fact she got huge she definitely walked with a bit of a waddle! I remember the times i would come home from a night out a bit drunk. That’s a huge lie i was very drunk, and i would try sneak my drunken snack (obviously back then i loved a bacon sandwich) i remember quietly shutting the kitchen door getting the bacon and butter out the fridge and very very quietly getting the frying pan out. Mum was just above the kitchen and she had and still does have ears like an elephant!! So what should have taken five minutes too make actually took a drunk and trying to be quiet me fifteen minutes to make. Oh and seeing that beautiful masterpiece i had just cooked without getting caught made it even more mouth watering. I had cleaned the kitchen and turned off the kitchen light and very quietly shut the kitchen door, i was now making my way slowly and quietly into the living room. I’d only got past the bottom of the stairs that was next to the living room door, when i heard a voice from the top of the stairs without even having eye contact say “Charlotte what’s that you’ve got?” At that moment I’d realised that my mum not only has hearing like an elephant, but also has a hooter better than a sniffer dog. I slowly turned and looked up at her looking down at me from the top of the stairs, i did try hide my food behind my back. Then she came out with “baby is hungry” how could i refuse. She won i give her my bacon sandwich and i ended up with a ham and mayonnaise sandwich.

I’ve finally gotten an ADHD therapist after I have burned down a ton of bridges and have lost a few friends. I’m probably at my lowest right now but it looks like this is what finally broke the camel’s back for me to get the non-medication help that I need. Hopefully I can cope with the anxiety that I’ve accumulated from this and that I could work on my many pervasive ADHD symptoms.

Hey soo, I’ve never actually been diagnosed with ADHD, but I’m seriously starting to feel like it may be the dominant cause for a lot of my behavior/emotional problems? I’ve tried relating it to dissociation, but I don’t have blank spaces in my memory. It’s like a chronic daydreaming and separation from the present, often imaginary social scenarios that I live out and feel. I fixate on thought experiments and language, and on the difficulty of self expression. Almost all of my drawing/painting is repeating lines/patterns, I fidget with my hands when I’m thinking/processing.. If I try to read a book I go over the lines without internalizing what they say

Does anyone else have this problem when reason? It’s like you’re reason a sentence and then suddenly your eyes shift to a completely different sentence. It could be a sentence father ahead of the book or behind where u were. And then u have to find where u were again, and then your eyes do it again. This is why it takes me forever to read a page bc my eyes won’t focus.

I believe my step daughter has adhd, she’s going to be 5 very soon and she reminds me a lot of my sister whom has adhd. I personally don’t know how to deal with her when she has a few of her adhd situations. I want to be a good step mom but I don’t know how to with this. My sister I grew up with so I learnt how to talk to her, but I don’t remember when we were children and how my mom delt with her lack of focus and a few other things. If anybody knows tips to help raising a child with adhd please message me!!! She has not been tested yet, but everything my sister went through makes me strongly believe she has it

So I have started a job a few months ago which is my dream job. I began to struggle with organisation and keeping up with tasks. I then got a diagnosis for dyslexia. But I know I’m my heart that this is far more than dyslexia. I think I may have ADHD because I’m unable to concentrate I zone out so much, always daydreaming, low self esteem, always in edge and fidgety, issues with consistency, major procrastination issues, poor time management and disorganisation. It’s really impacting my daily life. I’m 24
