Hi from the East Coast

Hi,

I'm new here - have dealt with undiagnosed ADHD since I was a kid and was really struggling until I found a really good doctor and got on Vyvanse. It really turned my life and my career around.

I was having trouble with memory, focus, organization, double-booking myself, energy, etc. and the medication immediately made me a lot "sharper". It also increased my confidence once I started seeing the effects of being so on top of things, and reduced anxiety. I'm still struggling with anxiety and stress, and may switch to another ADHD med soon.

I have a daughter (9) who has ADHD as well, and it's almost comical how we both struggle to stay organized and manage time and focus at home!

Would love to hear from others with similar experiences, and hope y'all make me feel welcome here! This forum has already been a great resource for me.

Regards,
Daniel

Re: Hi from the East Coast

Welcome! I also take Vyvanse. I received the surprise dx just a couple years ago and I am still figuring things out. This place has been a great resource for information for me. What seems obvious to some, is not obvious to everyone. Ask questions without judgment and respond to other's posts when you can.
