ADHD in Women
Adderall, Career and Pregnancy
After years of career maladies, I was finally diagnosed with ADD. It took me a while to accept that it was true but before taking the meds I was almost fired from my job and after I started taking Adderall, I became the star employee.
Since then, I have been promoted to a great new position as a project manager- I started in January. I’ve had to increase my dosage to keep up with the demands of my job.
All would be well if I weren’t planning on starting IVF soon. I need to start sooner than later due to my age. I am worried about my performance once I stop taking the adderall and start taking all of the hormones required for IVF…. there are tons of them.
I need to try to learn to manage my symptoms before I start IVF but I dont have much time. I am anxious and sad about the entire situation.
So basically I need to learn to manage my symptoms in the next few months. I’m hiring a professional organizer to help me at work and eventually at home. I am trying to learn to use Evernote, trying to sleep 7-8 hours a day, exercise and eat right. OMG. The list is so long…. did I miss anything? Any suggestions?
