P_Stampy - Australia

hey im 23 from australia.... was diagnosed with ADD when i was 16 years old.

Um..... was crap at english, but was ok with maths and comptuers and some science during school.. have had a number of dif types of jobs over the last 5 yrs also. I finished year 12 and at the end instead of my parents saying well done, it was more like "we're surprised you finished". mostnly had comptuer jobs (help desk/ sys admin) but also done data netry, envelope stuffing and have worked in a bank.

was a bit destructive when i was little (apparetnly nearly broke a kids neck when i was 5 in pre school)...

i hate it when i forget to take ritalin cos im just so dumb with out it. i cant think properly or talk properly

went a bit psycho at the end of last year and cut the top of my left arm up a bit but that has all healed now. im not sure what i was trying to achieve. i had a few drinks and just started crying uncontrolably and hitting my head and for soem reason cut my arms?!

i hate being stupid tho, i just do things that afterwards im like "wtf did i do that for". sometimes i think killin myself would just make things easier, but i wanna do things like get married and have a family. i dotn feel like that at the moment but somtimes i do. i got a great BF now too

That would have been done by one of the Forums staff, to be in compliance with the way posts are expected to be made in the intro section of the forums.

Hello, I'm a brand new member, too (haven't even introduced myself yet). I read your e-mail and my heart went out to you. Please, please, don't give up...and please try to start FORGIVING yourself. Nobody ever wants to be born with ADD, and most of us don't like the way it makes us behave.
Also, why don't you try taking Concerta instead of Ritalin? You only have to take it once a day, in the am. It's also doesn't suppress the appetite as much. I take it with my breakfast, so it's easy for me to remember. I also put it and the other vitamins/meds I take out on the counter the night before, right by the microwave so I can't miss them!
I hope this helps; pls let me know!
