The new guy

I have been on add for three weeks now. Add has changed my life. For the first time I can see my impulsive behavior. Knowing this is a double edged sword. Future looks bright and the past is emotionally painful. I have been diagnosed three times with bipolar disorder, but never any success with treatments. My life since the fourth grade is full of failure and difficult situations. I do not know how anyone could have been with me for 32 years. Many times I have let myself and family down. I never thought I was impulsive until now. For the first time in my life I understand that I have been a ******* and not who I really wanted to be. I have been able to focus for the first time in my life. This is an incredible feeling at my age. I have never read a book or completed most things in my life. I am embarrassed for my past behavior impulsive, interrupting, people, poor listener and more. Add has changed my life and hoe for the future. I used to think that ADHD was not a real disorder. After all the years of suffering and the time and money for other treatments I just want to say that I will be an advocate of ADHD for the rest of my life. I am not a looser and I intend to make a difference in my life.

Re: The new guy

Word. Welcome to the neighborhood! Glad you found some helpful relief. Lots of info, experiences, stories that resonate, and distractions (imagine that...lol) to be had here.
