Diagnosed in December. Had no idea that I had it (thought all my issues were the result of some as-yet-undetermined personality disorder or just me being a lazy jerk), although in retrospect it makes perfect sense. Don't know of any other conditions outside of the ones that just kind of come with living with a mental condition that you thought was a character flaw for 40+ years. Currently taking Ritalin, 2x20mg per day (I think that's the dosage; my psych actually gave me 3x20mg but I usually only need 2 unless I have to do something in the evening).

You know till I was about 20 or so I didn't know that a couple meant two (unless it concerned 2 people..). I always thought it meant a few and I used it as such...:lol:

Apparently some people do use it to mean "a few" or up to five, just a small number.
I didn't know that. :scratch:

- I was diagnosed with ADHD in March 2012 almost right after my 14 year-old son was diagnosed -- he was 9 back then. I knew very little about ADD/ADHD back then so I got on the internet to learn more and realized I had the same symptoms as my son when I was a kid and that I fit the ADHD adult symptoms as well so I went to a doctor and got my own diagnosis.

- I also have been diagnosed with severe GAD, mild depression and have Bipolar tendencies.

- I take Adderall XR (30mg) for ADHD, and Paxil (30mg) and Klonopin (.5mg/twice daily) and Risperdal (1mg) for everything else. I also take 75mg of Trazodone for insomnia.

Oh, I forgot to mention that I have mild to moderate OCD as well. Bad genes I guess. My kids and their kids are going to hate me later on. It's a curse.

I thought that these questions are brought up a lot.
And it would be helpfully to have a little archive of info so I do not have to ask you the same question a multiple times.
