Re: Roll Call - Kansas Attention Deficit Disorder

No, there aren't many of us around here. I've tried a couple of time to get a support group going in my area with no success.

Re: Roll Call - Kansas Attention Deficit Disorder

Hi all!

Olathe Kansas here!

Yay! Locals!

Are there any support groups in the KC area? Anyone interested? I would be more than willing to help out, but I can't manage all of the responsibilities myself :-) I'd misplace the group, or forget my car at a meeting

Hello fellow Kansan! Too bad I'm a few hours west of ya, I'd love to participate in a group again. I know there are support groups for Autism in the KC area, I'd bet there are groups for ADHD too.

Re: Roll Call - Kansas Attention Deficit Disorder

Soooo...

Anyone interested in meeting up? Get a group together for lunch or dinner?

I was going to start a meetup thing at that website, but it costs money, none of which I have at the moment.

Smile Re: Roll Call - Kansas Attention Deficit Disorder

Hello fellow Kansans. I was just diagnosed at 40. Thought it was anxiety, some of it was. Grew up with my younger cousin who lived with us and was diagnosed early on. His was obnoxious, angry, low academic, "spastic" outburst, etc. So when my ARNP suggested I had ADD, phsh, No way I said. Well yepper. Read Delivered from Distraction, found out about different modalities and am firmly convinced I too am ADD.

Sucks right now because I differ in opinion about my med necessities and max amp threshold/amp combinations. I am on Vyvanse but have a 2 yo and wife in Nursing school. Vyvanse gives me nowhere near the coverage I need; even @ 70mg am/50mg 2pm. I KNOW that seems high, but the drug wears off quickly. Wanted to try an IR dex/adderall as a booster in pm, but NOOOO...instead she rxd Trileptal. I even presented her with Harvard's Dr. Biederman re underdosing of adults. I currently take a midpoint amp level based on scientific evidence. But amp paranoia is as rampant as pain management drug dosing.

Just keepin on
Al

Re: Roll Call - Kansas Attention Deficit Disorder

I live on the KS side of the Kansas City area. Just diagnosed at age 58!! But I've had serious depression all my life--which I am sure was caused in part by frustration and hopeless caused by trying and trying and being so frustrated all the time.
I think there is a support group via CHADD in our area.

Ha! I was the same age when I had my self-diagnosis confirmed by a therapist (not official).
I've also suffered from anxiety and depression as long as I can remember.
I'm in the Wichita area and there are no support groups here.
I tried to start one, but after six months of no one coming I gave up.

Welcome fellow Kansan. There doesn't seem to be very many of us here.
But one gal in California/Wisconsin grew up in Kansas, so I count her too.
