Hi to All.

I'm Lisa, 37 y/o married, mother of two children. I teach nursing. I was diagnosed with ADD/ADHD (really not sure which) about 6 months ago. I had been a "non-believer" up until I started taking Adderall and realized what a difference the medication made in my life. I was hit out the blue with my diagnosis. I found the diagnosis hard to accept, and honestly continue to fight the "stigma" asscociated with ADD. My family doc is an ADDer himself and is very in tuned to the symptoms of ADD. My life, in hindsight, has been very affected by this disease, but I am still struggling to accept that I need to take medication every day, which now is Concerta.

I found out about this forum from one of the hosts on the migraine forum (my doc. thinks my migraines may be somehow related to the ADD). That discussion site has been SOooo helpful to me because I now realize that I am not alone or crazy! I'm glad this forum is here and look foward to learning more about this disease.

Thanks
Lisa
PS I sure hope I have this posted in the right place.
