Smile Introducing E-boy

E-boy: 33 male active duty navy. Interests include anthropology and generally all things remotely tied in to that.

I was diagnosed ADD as a child. My parents refused to accept this and I was shortly taken off the meds and told to just grow up. Wasn't easy, but I did. Ended up with OCD, GAD, and Clinical depression on top of untreated ADD.

Finally getting treated for all of the above with great success in all areas except ADD... NEXT!

I dig the "I need coffee". I live on the stuff as I have yet to convince my doc that stimulants will work better than the Wellbutrin is. I prefer good, over cooked, two day old, Navy coffee. What's yer poison?

What a nice group of folks. I feel very welcome. You know maybe this isn't the thread to discuss this in, but after alot of years I am only just coming to terms with the fact that I am not any of the things my father said I was.

Now I meet people like you here and in some of the adult ADD chat sites and I don't feel alone anymore. I certainly don't feel defective anymore. Well not much anyway. This is just great stuff.

hey there, welcome to the group, good to hear from another coffee junkie! anyway, my favourite is a mix of coffee's from a local family owned grocery store (i grind the beans there). anyway, I brew it and then rebrew it sometimes...the three day old, overcooked coffee is good too, but i have to put a lot of sugar in it then...

Smile

GAD = Generalized anxiety disorder. Untreated ADD can lead to anxiety disorders and regularly does.

Having licked the anxiety though I am trying to be a little more proactive and plan a niche for myself where my ADD is a blessing rather than a curse.

Funny thing for the Navy. I am great in emergencies and not so hot at routine stuff. Seems as though this confuses them. Makes sense to me though.
