Talking Introducing Myself!

Hello! I'm Dee.

Im 27 and was diagnosed with ADHD when I was about 13. All the Doctors promised my mom I would grow out of it and that Ritalin would make me normal.... well.... I certainly did not grow out of it (i may have actually gotten worse over the years) and Ritalin did not turn out to be the miracle drug they had promised my mom.... i went through the gambit of doctors, meds and shrinks for the following decade. I have lived with my Attention Difference unmedicated for about 5 yrs and recently had to go back on my Concerta due to school and some severe issues with my relationship that my impulsiveness and irrational swinging were clearly causing.

I am a Mom of the worlds greatest kids aged 6, 4 and 2


I also have an 11 yr old son who inherited my love for Shiny Stuff He's my greatest ally In him I see what everyone seen when I was a kid and I can realize that I wasn't all that bad... When my parents tell me that "OMG Nick is just like you when you were a kid!!!" I can tell them Thank you, Because Nick is one amazing freakin' kid.... and in me he can see that life doesnt stop, slow or alter because you live with an imbalance.

I am a Harm Reductions and Addictions outreach worker by trade and I am in college right now for Community Services.

I have the most wonderfully understanding boyfriend, he has dealt with all the craziness with a smile.

and thats me in a Nutshell. I look forward to getting to know you all much better

Dee XoXo
