Arrow Add: Adderall

Recently Have been able to recognize my Add challenge. It is noticable to all I encounter and all I encounter respond to this in different ways. Some simply say that I am UNBELIEVABLE! I worked in a caregiver role and my patients were aggitated that by simply turning around , I'd forget what I was doing-all the time. Some share responsibilities that are not their's in effort to help me. These are work associates. Others are crack the whip types that totally clashes with ADD , because it doesn't work. I can only change what I recognize and am willing to change. I did not want to admit attention deficit because it felt that something was wrong with me. I wanted to say something was wrong with situations , people , ain't nothin' wrong wit' me! it is an earnest challenge I am taking. I appreciate your correspondence there a million things I need to learn;Adult life is challenging and ADD is a just a part of this life "Not All Of It". My name is Linda. I work at Lowes. I am late in life child. one of seven. We are distant with one another. I am a new christian. I take Adderall 20mg beginning today. I am 30 yrs old. I have aging parents that need asisted living. I avoid stuff. I worry now but I am letting God do his work.

Hey. good to see you around.

I always wonder why it is better to obviously HAVE something wrong with us and SAY we don't have anything wrong with us.

I've worn glasses since 2nd grade. take them away I see a great deal less 20/400 20/800. So i have something wrong with my eyes. i sure rather have my glasses than claim there is "nothing wrong with my eyes" and be forced to give up my glasses to pull off the rousse!

Good luck with the meds!
