Just Diagnosed With ADHD (Adults)
Wow what a relief! Just found out I have ADD
I have an 11 year old that probably has ADD. I starting reading up on it and found out that I probably had it. I went to the Dr. and was told I had ADD. I have been on Adderal for about 4 days and I feel like a weight has been lifted off my back. I have been struggling with learning and confidence issues my whole life.
Adderal seems to be working great for me (I know its early).
I am taking my son to the same Dr. in 2 weeks (I wish I could get him in earlier). I don’t really have a question but will take any advice that anyone can give me on dealing with ADD for me and my son.
He is really upset that he is having such a hard time in school. He reminds me of myself at his age, I hope he doesn’t have to go through what I did.
I ended up graduating from College and have a good career, but I had to work *extremely* hard for it.
I think this is a great web site and look forward to learning as much as I can about ADD ADHD.
