Talking Wanted to introduce myself

Hi I have been lurking around the forum for a few weeks and wanted to say hi.
I'm 46 years old man, married with two children. I have had Adhd inattentive with a side of depression and a dollop of anxiety since i was a child and have recently started medication.
My story is typical of ADHD.
Many lost and bad relationships failed education and many missed opportunities in the workplace Low self confidence low energy and.
I have learned so much since i started reading this forum and wanted to say thank you all for this source of information.
Reading all of the experiences have really helped me to put all of the symptoms in a row and connect the dots.
Anyhow I did a month on 40 Strattera and now have moved to 10mg of Adderall.
I have fought my invisible enemy for many years with success and much failure.
My father has ADHD as well undiagnosed and my son who is 8 is undiagnosed at the moment as well and the jury is out on my 4 year old daughter.
We are team ADHD.
Life has been a roller Coaster to say the least. My ADHD at times in my life has been debilitating as i am sure some of you if not all can relate to. Anyways today is a great morning and Im wide awake and focused for the first time in my life , Anyways this looks like the spot that I can contribute and communicate with all of like minded ADHD folks. Sorry for all the grammatical and punctuation errors im really just not there yet
