Hello!

Hi everyone, my name is Missy and I came across this forum while researching ADHD meds. I'm 29 years old and was diagnosed with ADHD just a few months ago, although I know I have had it pretty much my whole life. I have always had difficulty focusing, staying organized, completing tasks, and remembering things.
I never knew what ADD/ADHD was when I was younger, but when I got older I saw a commercial about adult ADD and thought "THAT'S ME!!" but never did anything about it. I started seeing a psychiatrist a few months ago for anxiety, and after our first meeting, she said she was pretty sure I had ADHD based on my symptoms. I actually felt relieved that there was actually something wrong with me to explain all my issues, and not only that but a psychiatrist believed it, not just me making excuses for myself (which people have accused me of before when I brought up ADD and even now).
I have been having issues with my new medication, which I'll probably bring up in a future post in a different section. But anyways, I'm married and have 2 children who are 6 and 3. I also just graduated nursing school and will be taking my boards soon. So I have been pretty busy for the past few years!
I look forward to getting to know and learning more from all of you!
