39 years....and all this time it's been ADHD???

Hi there! Tiffany from Dallas here. Just Dx'd Monday after 39 years of living this way. I really was oblivious to my ADHD for about 30 of those years. About 9-10 years ago, I began to have enough self-revelation to joke that I was "ADD". Funny it took both of my kids getting Dx'd before I finally researched it enough and got Dx'd myself.

These boards have already been incredibly helpful this week as I have struggled with the triation of Adderall causing heart palpitations as well as pains. BUT, I have also felt the "sweet spot" of the meds and hope that it will work out for me so I can experience that mental clarity and CALM again. There is SO much to know and this forum has already helped answer so many of my questions just by being here - so THANK YOU!!!!

Tiff in Texas!
