Hi Joanna......it's nice to meet you. It's nice to see someone from Louisiana in the forums, yes this section is active. I think most ppl have not been able to post lately for one reason or another.

Question Are there any support groups in my area?

Hello everyone-I live in the northeastern part of Louisiana and was wondering if there was any support groups that are close to me? The closest support group I found was in Shreveport and that is an hour and a half away. Any info available would be greatly appreciated. Thanks so much.

Hi guys, I'm Angie.
I was born and raised in Slidell, LA - just north of N.O. - I've also lived in Lafayette and Mandeville.
I was diagnosed ADD/ADHD combined sub-type in December 2004. I also suffer from depression, anxiety, and dyslexia. FUN, FUN!

Just minor roof damage and an extra week of the kids at home. I've read some of the problems you have had. How is it going now?

Re: Roll Call - Louisiana Attention Deficit Disorder

Hi , I'm Melinda. My family and I live south of New Orleans. My husband has ADHD and I'm suspecting that a couple of my 5 kids have it too. Hubby has the most pressing needs. We really need the name of a doctor that specializes in ADHD or at least has SOME experience with it. Anyone???...please....thanks

Re: Roll Call - Louisiana Attention Deficit Disorder

I am moving again at the end of the year. I will be living in or near Ft. Polk. We aren't sure how long we will be stationed there.

Re: Roll Call - Louisiana Attention Deficit Disorder

Hi!
I live in Mandeville. I was diagnosed ADD in 9th grade and took Ritalin for many years. I stopped when I was trying to have children. I now have 2 children, and I desperately need to get back on some type of medication. I just can't seem to keep up anymore and feel very frustrated.

I talked to my primary care doctor about this, and she put me on Wellbutrin. It works a little bit....maybe..... but she won't prescribe anything other than that because she says that people get addicted to stimulants. (I never took beyond a minimal dose the entire time I took it as I am small and a little goes a long way for me!) She made me feel like I was asking for "drugs" for the wrong reason. I have never even smoked much less abused drugs. It was very embarrassing and frustrating for me.

Now I need to find a doctor who has experience with adult ADD on the northshore. Any ideas? Anyone???

Re: Roll Call - Louisiana Attention Deficit Disorder

Hey Candy_M and any other NOLA-ites!
I like your sock puppet, Candy_M!
I read your post a while back abt med shortage. I joined ADDforums that day so I could share my local advice for that but its taken this long to actually start posting! xD
You ever go to the Northshore CHADD group?
