Greetings, shousley!!!

I am also in early 50's and have recently discovered I have ADHD (without the H). Tell us more. Have you had depression, anxiety, how did you get diagnosed? Any kids?

Thanks for posting, the first time is the hardest! Hope to see you around!

PJ :p

H,
Yes I have been diag. with depression for as long as I can remember, so I told my primary dr it was something more than depression - so I end up going to a psychologist who diag. me with Add w/o hyper. I know all through grade school I would daydream alot, I missed most of what the teacher was saying, I have 3 children who are all adult, my youngest was diag. with ADHD at the age of 4yrs. old - he drove the preschool teachers crazy. I never gave him medication, he called me a few weeks ago because he wants to take classes at the community college, he wanted information on seeing a doctor so he can get medication. I am on Adderall 30mg, I started with Straterra 20mg then 40mg which did nothing, next it was adderall 20mg 2day. The only thing was when it wore off I really felt it, headache - some days the adderall xr does not work. I also take zoloft 50mg which I think I want to change, I have enough going on with my libido I don't need additional stuff. Well thats a little about me. Holla Back!!
