Lee-Yen is on a distinguished road
Greetings

Hello, I'm from Croatia, my nickname is Lee-Yen, when pronounced in Croatian language basically comes out as the word "lazy", a nickname I half-made myself some 15 years ago, but since I found about ADD, the joke got a whole new meaning to it.

I stumbled on a youtube video about ADHD in March 2017. naturally light bulbs went off and I went into full research mode, consulted with my sister and close friends to tell me their view if it could be ADD, and now 9 months later, I finally got confirmation from private psychiatrist/therapist (she recognized the symptoms basically as soon as I sat down, OCD as well), and while knowing that this is something that's never going away, it's a part of me forever, I finally know what it is, why I'm not living my life, but trying to survive day by day, and why some tricks and methods I developed worked, and others didn't.

I started on Concerta 18mg, bumped up to 36mg yesterday, so far both the positive and negative effects are minor, though I'm using (wasting?) most of my time analyzing what is Concerta doing to me, instead of trying to be productive, procrastination is still a big issue.

I already went on a lot of tangents while writing this, while it's supposed to be just an introduction, so I'll end it here.

Very happily looking forward to discussing issues and solutions, giving as much help as getting from fellow ADD brains.
