Hi everybody and welcome to ADD Forums.

My name is Tara and I'm a 28 (soon to be 29 ) year old woman with AD/HD (the new technical term for both ADD and ADHD). I didn't know I had AD/HD until I was almost 20. Wasn't actually Diagnosed until almost 23.

I was a "day dreamer" through out HS. My academic career was very inconsistent. I now think it has more to do with the different teaching styles than the actual subjects.

Well, I began my college experience after graduating HS in 1992. I'm still experiening it..lol I have been going on and off since 1992. I'm still workiing on my BA in the field of psychology...

I have been doing quite a bit of research in AD/HD since 1997.


I am the creater of the site http://www.livingwithadd.com that has been up in running since July of 1999. I also do some work as an AD/HD Coach.

From 1996 to 1998 I worked as preschool teacher for the Head Start Program.

From 1998 to 2002 I worked as special ed tutor with Middle School Students in the Public Schools.


I am currently a member of ADDA , CHADD NCGI and the ADD Professionals Group.

I will be attending the ADDA Conference this may in Portsmouth Virgina.

Hi Tara! Great to have you here. You know, for the longest time I thought that because of the way I am- think & feel - that there's no way that I could accomplish what I want to be. I would like to sometime get into psychology. Which is my ultimate goal. I would like to either get into clinical/research area. Not sure really where it'll take me. I have a lot of things that I need to do first relating to my ADD Diagnosis.

Anyhow, in the past week or so I've been realizing that I'm taking this way too far & I don't have to be psychologically "perfect" to achieve grandure.. LOL

Anyhow... good to have you here & keep up the awesome work!

Janet

Hi Tara!
I actually discovered your website before I found this one. You have some great information for people new to ADHD. Thanks.

I never did compliment you on that. I'm sorry. I found that site before I found this one, and it's great. Kudos for ALL your work in both places.

HI Tara;

I too have lived with ADD all my life. I was an average student although I always seemed to struggle to keep up. I later found that my iq was high, and that my struggling was due to the ADD. I have three sons, two of which are ADD and are on meds. They are both honor students and have no academic problems. I recently talked with my doc about my ADD and he prescribed Strattera, which has really helped be. I wish I had done this years ago. I have always joked about my ADD and how I always had a dozen unfinished things. Thanks for having this bulletin, I look forward to cheking in often.

your add friend in Maine

Jim
