New to Adult ADHD
I was just wondering if anyone could help me out. I have been diagnosed with ADHD for at least 18 months now. My parents and doctors have known since I was a young girl but it didn’t become a much bigger problem until began University. While I was studying full time I was also juggling 2 jobs too. The pro and cons before medication, I had more energy but felt I was constantly tired. Post medication, I have more quality in my work output but don’t seem to have the energy like I used to. I feel as if though it could be a personal issue of I take too much on at one time.
So I am wondering if anyone else has had a similar story or can help me understand what I am going through.
Other information you should know before answering:
1. I have received cognitive therapy for my condition since I was 17 and I am now at the age of 26
2. My biggest issues are staying focused on what I need to do, lack of social ability and sometimes having to not talk about what I am thinking, comprehension is the big one when it comes to reading, memory and constantly changing different paths (not much stability)
3. I started on Dexamphetamine (10mg) and now I am on Ritalin (20mg)
