new kelli from ky

Hi my name is Kelli and I have been stuggling with adhd my whole life, I just found out I had it 11 years ago. I just thought it made you hyper, I did not know that it affected me in alot of ways, I just thought I was going crazy. I am about to start meds this week, I have to go back to the dr to get the results of my blood work...

I am so happy to see I am not alone. my husband and family do not understand me.

I will tell you a little about myself, I am a 31 year old female, I have been married almost 4 years, it will be 4 this oct 11th. I am a part time nanny, and I love my job. I love to work out it really helps me to feel better... I would love to go back to school to be a diettition(sp?) but I do not think I could handle it right now...

Growing up was hard in my family, esp with adhd, they always thought i was just being lazy ...

Hey Kelli, welcome to the forums.
October 11th is a great day, it was my mom due
date for me. but I didnt show until 3 days later. It
also is my Grandparents Anniversary.
I am glad you have decided to be diagnosed.
It is a 2 edge sword, good to know what the name
of the problem is and for some hard to deal with the problem.

There are alot of nice and supportive people here
who are sincere about welcoming someone into the
community. I hope you have a good stay here and
find it helpful.
There is also a Non Adders section if your husband
would like to join and vent his frustrations. Again Welcome.

Thank you

I actaully was diagnosed with add before adhd came about, but they now know I have adhd and not add...
Yea my husband gets frustrated with me at times, but he does not care for the fact I am going to be on meds. HE thinks I am going to be high all the time. I told him that if I did not have adhd and took took much I might get high but since I have adhd and I am only going to take what the dr tells me take it will make me feel better... Also I told him If I feel high from it then it means I need to stop taking it.... LOL

I will deff tell him about this site, everyone seems so nice on here....

Welcome Kelli! You won't find anyone in the forums that doesn't understand you, I'm sure of it! As for feeling high from the meds...I wouldn't say high is necessarily the right word to use. Maybe happier would be a better description. If the meds work like they're supposed to, your life will start taking on more order and everything won't seem so overwhelming and impossible to deal with. They're definitely not a panacea, but they can help you get to a place where you're better able to cope with life. Hang in there!
