My name is Jim and I live in the Burnsville area. I'm pretty sure I have ADD and raised a step-son who did. I'm finally seeking help with this problem and have posted a brief "novel" under "Adult ADD Help" http://www.addforums.com/forums/showthread.php?t=12714

I'm Courtney. I forgot to check this out when I joined! I've been diagnosed since 1999 with ADD - inattentive. It's nice to be able to be around people who have gone through/going through similar things - actually, it's a relief!

Talking SW Minneapolis

Thanks to Charlie the guru moderator I found this link at the bottom of my new post. I never would have looked below my post. It's great having a direct link to pertainant topics.
Oh ya. Intro. In and out of therapy since I was 19 to figure out what was "wrong" with me. Put on Prozac in 1989. It helped even out the "edges" but I hated the loss of highs and lows. No Sparkle!
Finally got a dual diagnosis in 2003.
I'm 51. Right now I'm living through the struggle to find the right meds. Love my Concerta hate my Effexor.
I have a soon to be 8 year old son to raise so I have to be on my toes.
Best wishes to those of you in outstate Minnesota. We finally got some real Minnesota weather today.

23 year old mom in Twin Cities

Hi I'm Yocheved. I am a 23 year old SAHM (stay at home mom) with inattentive ADD. I was diagnosed when I was in about first grade. I respond extremely well to medication, but have been off of it for about two years since the conception of my DD (darling daughter), throughout the pregnancy and now because of breastfeeding. I am in search of a perscription for some type of ADD meds while I am breastfeeding. Right now I'm trying, with my distracted self, to put together any and all info I can find on meds during BFing to present to a new psychiatrist in early March. If anyone has any info or research they know of, please let me know. I am also interested in meeting iwth other ADD adults, esp SAHMs in the area.

I am so glad to have found this site and I hope to be able to visit often!
-Yocehved

I live in St. Paul near the governors mansion. I am 20 years old and I attend Metro State University. Im not sure how severe my ADD is, the doctor simply gave me a perscription after I told him that I suffered from many of the symptoms listed for ADD. More than anything I suffer from an anxiety disorder as well as depression.

Hello all!!! I am thirty-eight, and from Webster, MN. I was diagnosed just his last Feb. Havent started on any drugs yet, trying to get off something else first. Pretty happy go lucky person. Making ppl smile is paramount. I try.

It did not know there were so many from MN here. Opening up some kind of dialog would be wonderful, and even better, maybe some kind of support system. Just a thought.
