Can I write a short ADHD book here? Need feedback
Apr 26, 2015 - 1:51 AM - by redmaverick
Hi guys!

I always wanted to write a book on how to deal with ADHD targeted just for myself. There are just two problems:

1. I keep procrastinating.
2. I need comments (positive or negative doesn't matter)
3. There are experienced ADHD'ers here and I need to know what they think about my strategies to counter ADHD so I can improve them.

What do you think? Is this against the forum guidelines. I have to read them sometime later.

Smaller brain size?
Apr 26, 2015 - 12:46 AM - by icarusinflames
What do you think of the reports that for ADHD, in some cases at least, the brain structure is different? I believe they say that the overall brain volume can be less than a so called normal brain. Also I heard that there can be other structural abnormalities.

I am currently enduring what seems like an interminable wait for an evaluation. In the meantime, I have no therapist. I keep reading online about ADHD and some of what I read makes me feel like Abby Normal in Young... [Read More]

painful self-awareness & hypervigillance
Apr 25, 2015 - 11:15 PM - by icarusinflames
I was wondering if anyone here suffers from painful self-awareness experienced through inappropriate amounts of private reveries and ruminations. It can at times manifest as daydreams, but usually the tone will take on a worried tendency to dwell on all the things I know I have to do but neglect.

I am hoping and praying that this will be somewhat reduced with medication! It's absolutely unbearable when I am trying to focus on my mundane daily tasks.

ADHD symptoms
Apr 25, 2015 - 10:55 PM - by hg12345
So I just found this list that I had written up before my first visit to the psychiatrist to get my diagnosis of adhd. It is a list of my symptoms that I had/have which led me to get a diagnosis. I thought Id share it so that others that may not be sure whether or not they have adhd can see it. Of course not every person is the same but overall the sx are pretty basic for someone with add-combined type.

I'm a 44 year old woman who literally just figured out that I probably have ADHD. I have an appointment for an evaluation in late May but it's so incredibly difficult to wait for this. I was hoping to meet some people who have ADHD, especially women, and try to learn more. All the descriptions of ADHD are totally me.

As you can imagine, I have very little support because all my relationships are either damaged from various conflicts or I just never bonded... [Read More]
