Does anyone else here with ADHD practise the pause before replying to anything? I find that I can do this more often with text messages and emails, but irl I don’t and come off as an idiot and easily manipulated by toxic people.

I just finished a light cardio workout with some stretching and I was think to myself I'm so glad to be in the present moment taking care of myself. I reminded myself that we can create our own satisfaction that's had nothing to do with society and what it expects. We are human beings and deserve to feel and treat ourselves and others as such. As someone with adhd I always feel like if I'm not doing everything society's way then I'm not good enough but it's just not true, I'm me simple as that. I'm a creative free spirit and I chose to treat myself as such because it makes me happy. I need to be creative like I need air to breathe. I'm proud to be a neurodivergent we see the world differently and that's more than ok 👍 💙

Hi everyone! A tip I learned about doing tasks while coping with ADHD is to listen to a podcast… this way you aren’t distracted by the video aspect that TV gives you and can help keep you in task while being entertained!

What does adhd meds help with besides getting things done bc I don't really care about that stuff. I'm good at getting things done. I have a really fast brain I'm constantly thinking at a speed I can't handle it causes me to have a hard time focusing and just having a good mindset bc I'm hypersensitive to everything so that causes my thoughts to be very scrambled. Then that causes me to fatigue easily then I start feeling ashamed of myself bc I'm trying so hard but certain thing just beat me down

TW: (In this paragraph I have abbreviated trigger words. I also highly recommend you don’t try this coping skill if water is a trigger for you.) Coping skill for anxiety: Have you ever heard of an ice dive? You may have seen videos of people diving in icy water but this is not that kind of activity! Ice dives involve submerging the face in icy cold water for **30 seconds or less .. or you could dunk your face in and out quickly.** This sensation triggers the “dive reflex. The dive reflex is an evolutionary protective mechanism that occurs in mammals in response to water submersion. The body responds by lowering the heart rate and increasing blood flow to the heart and brain. This reflex shifts physical, neurological and chemical body functions, the body literally does this as a way of preserving life. The dive reflex pauses or slows down nonessential functions since emotions aren’t absolutely vital to survive short term, this coping skill will calm a person down. Try this coping skill! It can be incredibly helpful for intense emotions that trigger panic and anxiety attacks, intrusive thoughts, SH urges, SI and more.

I have a question, dating someone (partner is about to be 32, i’m going to be 24 in a few weeks). Who also has ADHD, we haven’t really ran into any issues other than recently, and i somehow feel that if he even gets the slightest notion of me being upset with him, he’ll shut down and will get extremely anxious. Has anyone had an issue like this? If so then how did you resolve it?

Hi all, wanted to let you know that there’s a new resource in the U.S. Just like 911 for criminal matters.. dialing 988 will be known as the national suicide hotline. When will it be accessible? On Saturday 7/16 the “988” number will be going live. This is the suicide hotline. 💜📞

I'm not sure if this is necessary to post this, but I've been having urges to pressure people for answers when I really want to do something. Of course, I need to be patient when they feel determined. And even if they don't think about it, I shouldn't worry about it.

I just started taking Setraline and Hydroxyzine 4 weeks ago and today I’m starting Ritalin. This is a huge step for me. I wanted to share this because it’s important to let people know that taking the next step can feel scary but it’s worth it.. it’s worth the moment you realize that things can be different and can feel calm and not so chaotic and overwhelmed in your brain.. and to let people know that guides and helpers on here understand the struggle too. We are just like everyone else.

Hey y’all, has anyone here taken Ritalin or any other ADHD medication and felt really tired and out of it and foggy … rather than productive and feeling a boost of energy? I don’t feel any energy and I am not wanting to do anything like per usual.

Hey guys I’m from the U.K and wanting some advice on medications. I’m just looking for something to help me focus while I’m training for a new job. I don’t want to be on something long term. Any recommendations of medication that helps you focus with no side effects? Thanks! ❤️

Hello. I am having problems with using prescribed meds for the first time. I used 10mg 3 times last week, and I’m starting to use 20mg twice a day starting today. I still notice no changes in my lifestyle at all just a whole lot of side effects. My chores are still half done, my reading is still impossible, I’m still late to everything, still can’t remember things at all. To be honest my mind chatter is a bit quieter and my sleep is better. I’ve also become a cry baby since I first started using them. I’m beginning to think that I’ve been misdiagnosed. Do you have any suggestions/experience that can help? It’d be much appreciated 🌻

Hi there, I know this group is ADHD/ ADD but my husband has ADD and honestly I’m just trying to better understand and get some advice. This is supposed to be a safe space for everyone- so I don’t want anyone to feel uncomfortable if there is a non- ADD/HD attendee here. 🤍

I know it’s inappropriate to post on a public forum but I really struggle and searching for a solution. I’m sorry if society makes this most apparent elephant in the room a taboo even though everyone without a shadow of a doubt participates in it ironically… but all my unattained goals and procrastination roots back towards pornography and I’ve had enough. I am a male and I think that means it’s more overwelming but idk you see because it’s too taboo to know what normal! Every time I finish I’m like “wow what a waste of time what did I accomplish in all that time” but in the desire of it I am too distracted to not think sexually. I honestly am considering a vasectomy because I just don’t want it anymore. I’ve had enough. I’m done
