Dave in SF...

Wanted to drop in officially and say hi.. have snooped around the forum from time to time (always forgetting to bookmark!!). I am 30 and was finally diagnosed maybe around a year ago with combined type ADD/ADHD. I currently whip around on Wellbutrin XL, Adderall, and Ritalin during my days at work and nights at school. I have always known that this was my destiny but I only became proactive about it last year. I was the "gosh, he could be something if he really tried" type and just elected to really stop trying since no one out there was really taking the time to see what my plight actually was. So here I am today: Ta dahhhh!! I still have ADD but I am starting to see some benefit from my pharmaceutical regimen and slowly am gaining the confidence to actually go in for some therapy, not just Rx time. Anyways, scattered as it may be, I am reallly happy that this forum exists because even by lurking in the shadows, you guys have really helped me out and hopefully I can now give something back to someone here who may need help...

Cheers,

DJ
