Is anyone in here interested in making a book club with me? We would read a adhd related book together a chapter at a time and discuss the topic at hand weekly and just learn from each other and the book? Please message me ❤️ was thinking of starting with the book: The Miracle Morning- The 6 Habits That Will Transform Your Life Before 8AM By HAL ELROD- or I have many other ADHD books we could read together?

I was diagnosed with ADHD in seventh grade and ever since then I’ve noticed how much it impacted my life now that I’m an adult I feel like it’s gotten much worse and I don’t take medicine because I don’t want to rely on it it’s hard to get especially with no insurance but one thing I can say that’s really frustrating about ADHD is controlling my emotions and always missing little details that can cause a big consequence for me I was just recently scammed for $700 and working on trying to get a back I also moved out of state and things have just been so up and down it’s hard for me to stay positive and having ADHD on top of all that stuff is not helpful if anyone has any tips on how to stay positive and keep their head up let me know because I’m very close to hurting myself and calling it quits because I’ve never thought it would be this hard for me to be emotionally stable enough to be an adult I feared it before and almost all my childhood and now that it’s here I don’t know what else to do

Any tips for dating as a woman with adhd? I never know how to act on a first date, and I usually decline a second out of either disinterest or because I totally didn’t act like myself when we met.

Is it common for ppl with adhd to have these mental lulls during the day where you start off strong do all the right things and by around 2-4ish your just less yourself so to speak? It's long question lol. I try to just accept it and wait for like 7- bedtime when my minds becomes more peaceful

Hello everyone, I am new here. I am afraid there is a possibility I might have ADHD. I was never tested for it but recently I became aware of my “patterns” in daily life as much as in a bigger picture. It is tricky however, my Mayer’s Briggs type is ENFP, who’s preferred cognitive functions almost always make them look like they have ADHD. I am afraid to get tested because I am almost sure I will be diagnosed but in my head there is just really a 50/50% chance I actually have it. I don’t want to take unnecessary medications. I know there are many great doctors that devote themselves to help others but I also know there are a lot of bad doctors. I have a really bad experience with a group of doctors who prescribed be a pill (for something else) that did some serious damage to me over time. No one warned me about this possible side effect that quickly caused at least 10 new issues in my life that I had to battle for months and repair. So I’m a little short on trust with some doctors.

Here are a few riddles to get everyone's brains working. There’s a one-story house where everything is yellow. The walls are yellow. The doors are yellow. All the furniture is yellow. The house has yellow beds and yellow couches. What color are the stairs? Two fathers and two sons come home from the mall. Yet when they arrive home, only three people get out of the car. How is this possible? If a plane came crashing down on the border between Canada and America, where are the survivors buried? I have 13 hearts, but no lungs or stomach. What am I? Let me know your favorite riddle and the answers.

I’ve had adhd my whole life and honestly I’m happy tik Tok exists bc I come across so many pages where people discuss what they go through with adhd and I just thought all this time I was just VERY WEIRD but apparently it’s all adhd and I’m not the only one experiencing everything I’m experiencing and it’s just so relieving

Anyone else here feel like they can’t seem to hold down a job? I feel so stupid compared to most people that I can’t learn as fast as some people with a new job and getting let go from a job more than once in my life because I didn’t learn fast enough makes me feel pathetic and like I’m almost better off as a house wife because apparently can’t handle a job and I don’t want to feel like this but I can’t help it

ADD,Anxiety, and Depression alone all suck..but when you have them all at once you really struggle with the simple things. At the end of January I had started really making sure I took my medicine routinely for the anxiety and depression which I feel ten times better. This past week I have been really trying to make sure I take my ADD medication as well as I tend to forget most of the time, because well getting myself and two children out the door on time is a miracle in itself.🤣 I’m stating this is this; If you have ADD or ADHD with depression and anxiety consider treating them all. I have found that taking medication for my ADD actually helps with the others. I have the motivation and focus to complete something which cuts down on the anxieties about not getting things done. And in return that helps the depression because I don’t feel bad about not getting tasks done…because THEY ARE DONE! Anyway thanks for reading 😜

I'm scared to try meds for my ADHD I don't understand how effective they will be I don't really want a huge difference from them bc I still want to be me and everytime I think whether or not I'm gonna take them I think of just wanted to do so much that I won't be able to keep up to myself. Is this a totally irrational thought?... probably I just know I need to treat it but I don't know what I want at the same time😔

I don't have a job because they don't motivate me, I'm supposed to want one but I don't. I tried to practice driving but I almost got in a accident I just feel so discouraged. ADHD is so difficult for me. As a kid I didn't even think it was a struggle but now at 23 it's so hard

Hey guys! I hope everyone is having a good day so far! What is one thing that helps you stay focused in your everyday life? I'll go first. What usually helps me stay focused during a conversation I internally try to repeat everything the person is saying to me. another thing that seems to work for me is when I chew gum or when I have something in my hand to fidget with. Looking forward to your responses!

Hi, I’ve recently been diagnosed with ADHD although I’ve kinda known it after reading an article about it when I was 10 or 11. I’m really curious though, does anyone else have music constantly playing in ur mind except when u’r asleep? It’s like I have my own personal Spotify in my brain 😂 Coz my boyfriend is a musician and a neurotypical, but even he doesn’t experience this so I thought I’d ask here.

What do you do to keep yourself focused in a conversation? What I do is internally repeat everything the person is saying so it absorbs into my head Do you guys have any alternative ways?
