Re: Roll Call - Virginia Attention Deficit Disorder

Name: Crystal
Location: Fairfax, VA (w/in walking distance of the Vienna Metro)
Relationship to AD/HD: My husband and I have AD/HD

I'm happy to have found this site. I was feeling all alone in my own world and I craved outside acceptance. At long last, I summoned up the courage to reach out to others with AD/HD. It turned out that there was no reason for me to fear further rejection. I finally fit in and everyone one here is so supportive!

Generally, my goal in posting this message is to meet people and potentially make more friends. I moved here nine years ago, and in that time, I have only made one meaningful friendship. Specifically, I want to work on my social skills.

If there is anything else you want to know, please don't be afraid to ask.

Re: Roll Call - Virginia Attention Deficit Disorder

Hi folks,

I'm Chuck. 49 years old, living just outside Manassas with my wife and 2 kids.

I was recently diagnosed w/ ADD. I work in computer networking, and learning new things has been difficult lately. I'm on Adderall XR now and that is helping me stay focused and recognize when I'm getting distracted. Going to counseling too (making lists like mad ).

Nice to know there are others nearby. Know of any in-person support groups around or have any strategies to help cope with, and manage this?

Re: Roll Call - Virginia Attention Deficit Disorder

Hey don't be chicken this how it goes dopamine is a chemical the brain makes and people with add don't have very much of that chemical this chemical makes you feel happy safe focus and overall you feel better.It also helps with depression panic disorder.The med called adderall in goes into the brain cell and produces the chemical dopmaine which brain lacks. So if you have any question give a shout and I will try to answer if i have the answer. ps use spell check

Any recommendations for doctors near Haymarket Virginia? Switching from Kaiser to United and need a new doctor. Thanks!
