Anyone Else Out There? Age 62 Just Found Out
I’m new to this group…..was prescribed with Ritalin when I was about age 12…..then for years never any treatment….I’m age 62 now, and I just realized that I have the symptoms of adult ADD. I got a couple of books on it and it seems right on….have not been officially diagnosed and do not want to take meds.
I would rather rely on the books suggestions on how to live with it…focusing on the positives, while being aware of the challenges. (The book I really like is The Gift of ADD - How to Transform Your Challenges and Build on Your Strengths by Lara Honos-Webb.
I joined this group just to see if there is anyone else out there who is in my age range and ideas for how to thrive with it.
