Newly Diagnosed - Thanks for the previous help.

Just got back from doc appt. He said he was initially hesitant to prescribe based on my past alcohol history. That and he said I had some bipolar traits that are borderline. However, based on the positive effect Ritalin has on me and my history, he was fairly comfortable with an ADD diagnosis. He took me at face value and prescribed it.

Whew Hew! I just about cried. Finally, one less thing to worry about...the squirrels in my head.

Thanks for all the help as I posted a thread earlier this week and got some good feedback.

He is asking for someone from AA to meet with him and give him a warm fuzzy feeling as I could sense a bit of apprehension due to my past.
