I usually get overwhelmed by forum threads but...

I just turned 31 and after 14 years of being diagnosed with ADD/ADHD/whatever we're calling it these days, I thought I should try and find a more effective way to tame my brain and get my life under control other than meds/shame/self-loathing.

Have lots of questions, a good amount of experience (tons of "how-not-to [fill in the blank], but mostly just looking to meet other people like me so we can help each other figure out how to make the most out of this infuriating, soul crushing, but also kind of cool/exciting... thing we find ourselves dealing with!

Do you take meds? Do you not want to take meds?
