100octane-Texas

Howdy from Texas. I am a male in my early 40s. I've long suspected that I am ADD, probably was in high school, but ADD wasn't talked about in the 70's. Somehow I survived, and continue to do alright, but wonder now, is there something that will make the second half of my life a little more *calm* and *focused*. I have yet to see my doctor to get a referral, though that would be the next step. Any advice would be welcomed - other than that which I already know (eat a better diet, exercize more, and stop smoking). Ha. Thanks y'all.

Hi gas man! Welcome to the forums. I am new also. Just recently diagnosed and still in the learning phase with the medicine. I was very relieved to finally get a label, even though I suspect most of the world cannot imagine why. Good luck.
