Loydsworld - Kansas City, Missouri

Hello all!
My name is Dave, I have had ADHD all my life but wasn't diagnosed until I was 38, when I was first diagnosed I thought it just effected my learning and reading, not my every day life. boy was I wrong!
I have been missed diagnosed 5 times over these last 4 years until I gave up ever feeling better, then this fall I lost everything that ever meant anything to me, ( MY FAMILY )
My wife after 22 years couldn't handle it anymore, this illness has caused damage to my family. I do take blame for all it has caused, I believe I have a chance on getting them all back, I'm on med's and therapy, and the improvements I've made since we have split up is amazing for me, but I still have a lot of problems, so any advice is welcome, I just found out I'm not alone, it's great,

Dave
