Unhappy Tony in Cincy

Hi I'm Tony a 30 yr old male in Cincy. I was diagnosed at age 18 with ADD but that was it. No treatment, no education, no meds. I'm reading delivered from distraction and it opened my eyes that everything in my life that is screwed up is because of my ADD. I have an appointment Thursday at the affinity center where they specialize in diagnosing and treating ADD. Im hoping that they can help cause right now ADD is ruining my marriage and my life. I just want to be normal.

Re: Tony in Cincy

Welcome to the forums, Tony!

I hope your experience on Thursday will be good and you'll get the help you need.

That clinic is even mentioned in the book You Mean I'm Not Lazy, Stupid, or Crazy? by Kate Kelly and Peggy Ramundo.

Re: Tony in Cincy

Hey Oppe. I can relate very much with what you posted. Know what its like to go years without treatment and that moment of epiphany when the blinders come off for a bit. There is help. There is hope.

What part of Cinci are you in? Not familiar with the Affinity Centre ( we are up in Mason ) but you are wise to get things moving ASAP, 'cause that moment of realisation, the fog clearing, will only last a little while. The fog will begin to creep in again, believe it or not, and you need to put things in motion while you have the momentum in your favour.
