I was just diagnosed with that last week. I was diagnosed with ADD in January. I'm sure finding out a lot of stuff about myself at 34/35 years old! :p

Just wanted to see if there was anyone with similar things going on to talk to.

Oh, I also have had depression forever, but I've been on good meds for that for years so it really doesn't affect me anymore (yay!)

Have had manic depression, today it's unipolar always, and have tried every antidepressant known to man...and sleeping meds, but still lucky if I get five hours sleep...yes, I can relate.

Sleep is a rare commodity in my world. I lay there, contemplating ideas. My mind won't shut off. I've stayed awake for 4-5 days in a row several times. Keep in mind, this occurs whether I am currently using amphetamine treatment or not.

I did this a few weeks ago. One night I was so desperate I took 90mg of temazepam simply because I was SO desperate to get some sleep and that didn't even allow zzz' sucks!
