Gah... ******* awful day.
Sep 27, 2016 - 9:15 AM - by Jacksper
Sometimes you have one of these days. Well, I have it today... I feel like the darkness is constantly trying to engulf me.. hitting me in waves, some of which seem like tidal waves. During the worst moments I find myself contemplating how bad my life, how I hate everything, especially myself, and how I can end it.

This did not come from nowhere. I am trying really hard to improve my life, and making progress, but I am still struggling occasionally. Some things just don't change.... [Read More]

Multiple diagnoses
Sep 26, 2016 - 6:09 AM - by daru3200
Twenty six years ago, I was diagnosed as having high functioning autism, what used to be called Asperger syndrome. I've recently been diagnosed with schizoaffective disorder. I was just diagnosed as having ADHD, which I've suspected for years. Anybody else have such multiple diagnoses?

Buzz Cut for women? I totally dig it.

Right now my hair grew out to 4 inches and it's getting too annoying for me.

I can never go back to long hair anymore.

Buzz cut it is, but after I buy new hair clippers.

Sep 25, 2016 - 6:52 AM - by Fuzzy12
Just curious. I suck at this. Emotional regulation o mean. I can't even soothe myself (that is stop feeling as if the world is coming crashing down) once the trigger is removed and I know that everyhting is ok again. I know it but I don't feel it. The emotions linger..often for the rest of the day.

Apparently, the physical changes that accompany our emotions or cause them take a longer time to revert back to their prior state, which is why emotions linger even when they don't fit... [Read More]

Has anyone read the book ADHD nation by Allan Schwarz?
Sep 24, 2016 - 3:16 PM - by mildadhd
Today before I logged into ADDForums there was ad for a book called ADHD Nation by Allan Schwarz.

After looking into some of the videos and reviews on line, I was considering buying the book.

I usually am not interested in any books that appear to doubt the existence of ADHD (aka..Deficits of executive function/deficits of self-regulation).

I am not sure, but the author does not appear to doubt that deficits of self-regulation/ADHD exists, or that... [Read More]
