Hello-Glad to be here

Hello! After lurking on here on and off for years, Iíve decided to get involved and start putting myself out there.

I am almost 40 and was diagnosed at 17 and again at 27 with ADD. I was on Adderall and then after that, Concerta for about a year total in 2004-2005. I didnít like how the meds made me feel (sluggish, heart palpitations, muscle fatigue) on Adderall and Concerta made me very angry which was not ok. So l decided to stop treatment completely which was not a good decision.

My inattentiveness and scattered brain along with task management and prioritization issues and tendency to be messy have gotten worse over time and Iím not ok with how they are affecting my life. Itís time to start treatment again.

I look forward to getting to know you guys and hopefully we can help each other through this!

-CelesteyD
