Hi from Katie

Hello there - I've just been diagnosed with ADHD at the ripe old age of 37. I never knew I had it, or even suspected. Lots of trauma in my childhood and I think when I finally cleaned some of that up I realized I had even MORE issues (in fact just last night a friend asked why I'm collecting diagnoses )

Anyway, I have been told I can't take stimulants because I'm on blood pressure meds (diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes in 1988). So ... lifestyle changes or neurofeedback, which costs $3,000 (not covered by insurance). I'm a bit frustrated by that. Feeling overwhelmed by all the diagnoses, in fact. When I went to therapy twice a month I was up to about 57 doc appts per year. That is nuts. So I dropped the therapy and now I'm down to only 30+ doc appts each year (before the ADHD diagnosis).

Anyway, hi!

Re: Hi from Katie

Hi Katie and welcome,
I am also on blood pressure meds and bipolar meds and I am prescribed stimulants. I just wanted to let you know that it is possible to have stimulants with other health issues.
