Hey guys. So I’ve been doing a lot of research for my adhd. I thought it was time to take matters into my own hands and try and find ways of dealing with it, ways of not getting distracted & bored which as we all know, leads to anxiety and feeling down. I made a ‘dopamenu’ which is basically a list of activities that can boost your dopamine so that you can feel motivated and not get bored and down. Each day I’ve picked a few when I feel myself going there and it’s really helping. Learning a new skill, setting small achievable goals each day, which also boosts dopamine, especially when you tick them all off after completing them. It feels good to follow a daily plan and I just wanted to share that with everyone as it’s really helping me... xxx
Happy Valentine's Day 2021! Let’s celebrate love, tolerance, acceptance, respect, kindness and peace everyday not just on a holiday. May everyday be filled with positivity and love. Cherish everything and everyone. Let love forever flourish all over the world.

Mind feels like a humming bird
I’ve gone through intense maladaptive daydreaming this weekend (it usually is during that time) and now I feel upset with myself because I could have done more productive things. It’s been a pattern for quite sometime and it sucks 😖 I think not having a schedule comes to play but I don’t often make a schedule because I’m afraid that I wouldn’t get anything done because of my maladaptive daydreaming.
Hey all, I just started back on Adderall 5mg and Zoloft a few days ago because my ADHD was affecting my life. Lately, after taking the meds, I’ve been feeling tired and bored. Is this with all ADHD meds and does this ever go away? I do plan on increasing my dosage like it was 5 years ago but don’t want this tired feeling all the time.
My anxiety is pretty bad right now. 🥺
I need a friend to talk to
My ex took half of my stuff she bought me put me in jail & gave it to her current bf crazy thing about it was she went to jail last year & i got her out i ask her to do the same when i was in there she said no & left me in there i completely left that person & now im just waiting for karma am i wrong
My new doc asked me about my ADD and I told her that I tried neds for it when I was 100 or so and I had a bad reaction to 3 of them. Can't remember the names. She said that I could try some type of ADD med now that I'm older but idk if I should. I've lived on treated practically my whole life. I start things and never finish them, can't concentrate, super sensitive, noise sensitive etc. ADD attributes to anxiety and depression as well as insomnia. I just wonder if finally treating it will have a positive influence on my life and my other mental illnesses.
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. 😌💯
Am I the only one who hasn’t taken their meds since the pandemic started? 😭
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...

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.
I’m new and don’t know how this works but just looking to get stuff off my chest and have someone actually have a conversation with me without it being about them
