Also, I've lost too much weight and struggle to eat every day.
how the h311 are you 16 and a college freshman?

Re: Teen Roll Call!

Hi... I'm Harley... I'm a 19 year old gal in college, freshman.

Apparently, my family doctor had brought to my mother's attention that I may have ADHD when I was in middle school. She decided that, and I quote directly here, "Taking medication [for ADHD] would ruin who you are. You'd loose that flair that makes you unique." SERIOUSLY. I found out when I talked to her about it this past month.

So, I went away for college this year and I've been talking to my friends a lot more. Since I'm living with people my own age they can relate to me more. I was reading over stuff in my psychology book and read symptoms for ADHD and ADD and most of the ones for ADHD applied to me. That was the point where I started talking to my friends about what they experienced and I noticed that I wasn't as normal as I thought.

So I went to see a psychiatrist (totally made me super nervous but he was recommended to me by a friend down here [I'm in SC now and I'm from PA so I'm 600 miles south of where I used to live]) and he put me on 50mg of vyvanse... I've been taking it since February 4th.

Re: Teen Roll Call!

My name is Chris, 16 years old. I live in Arizona. I have mild/moderate ADHD. It usually affects me during homework, driving, and hobbies.
I'm in high school, I play sports and music, and I am somewhat lacking in those areas when I'm not being medicated.

So yeah.
