This is my attempt to find people like me.

Hi
I've already been through this once. I wrote a lond introductory letter and didn't finish it right and it's just not there now.
I guess a quick summary. I have ADD, I live in a fragmented world or disjointed limbo or sometimes furious sandstorms. Whatever you wanna call it. I just want to speak to someone who knows what I mean sometimes.
I am curently taking Adderal and it is working out extremely well.
I would like to hear about someones hyperfocusing experiences.
Are they like mine? Are you physically drained afterwards? How far does it go?

Hi Sara: Welcome to Forums. I do relate to hyperfocusing as a coping mechanism for ADD....AND the fact that it IS exhausting...after staying with something for hours on end because I have hyperfocussed on it....I AM ready for a nap, or something.... I look forward to reading more of your posts....

I'm still learning daily about what is actually going on. I realized I do have a tendency to hyperfocus but I'm actually just a normally overfocused ADD kind of person. I think I get worn out when stimulation dies out. If I have completely obssessed over an issue for hours or fell in to creating something, I will feel a bit more worn than normal.
Anyway, it was nice to hear from everyone. Does anyone kow of any informative books to check out?
I just watched "Adaptation". great great great
