"acting"
Dec 05, 2016 - 7:37 PM - by PolaBear
Hey people

Random thought (and something I keep thinking to expand on here) but do any of you guys find musicals or stage productions/theatre uncomfortable, even things like "period dramas". As in the falseness of it has an feeling in the same way as when you see something false or "presented" in say an office or in politics etc?

Up and Down--help please
Dec 02, 2016 - 4:53 PM - by sluggish
Hi all,

I've found that Concerta treats me better than the other meds I've tried. However, I'm dealing with issues that are either from too much or too little med--I think.

Am I on too much or too little if my focus and motivation seriously declines and then it comes back a few hours later?

This morning, I started off really good, then dropped, after lunch it was great, and now it's bad.
Thanks

Projects you've finished in spite of ADHD
Dec 01, 2016 - 12:11 AM - by thrownaway
Sometimes I feel like I'm only beginning to grasp the effects of this disorder. One recent realization is the chronic, impulsive starting of massive projects.

It seems like it's impossible to catch myself when I'm doing it.

What are some things you've managed to finish that you would consider a big undertaking? Have you noticed any patterns that determine what gets finished and what doesn't? How do you filter out the impulsive ideas?

Happiest when constantly busy?
Nov 30, 2016 - 2:41 PM - by castalia
Am I the only one who feels like this? Basically I am at my happiest in a crisis or when I have a lot of problems to solve. Being idle exacerbates my ADHD symptoms and I can't just sit around and do nothing.

I wonder if this is dopamine-related. Lots of people are surprised that as a woman I am so level-headed in a crisis.
