Yeah, Sam I'm in the UK too and I'm pretty sure too, all the criteria fits in with who I am but I don't even think doctors know about ADD here do they?

Re: Teen Roll Call!

Hi!
I'm Sondre, 15 years old, in my last year of High school struggling to keep my grades up while skating my way through the world!
Got diagnosed with ADHD (Combined something) early februar this year, a bit late, so I didn't get help before now.. (And if anyone wonder why they didn't spot me, they told me I was too quiet and non-violent at school for them to discover me xD)

Oh yeah, I live in Norway, right next to Russia, if you Americans had been like the ones we see in the movies, you would call me a Communist xD

Re: Teen Roll Call!

i'm chris, sixteen years old, i recently got suspended out of school and am doing homeschool now. DIdn't take my Adderall cause' part of me hated taking it for school and i decided to sell drugs sloppily and got what i deserved.w00t w00t.
Oh yeah, unlike the stereotypical ADDer i've read so far in "So I'm not Lazy, Stupid or Crazy?!", I had mostly A's in school and four honors classes.
ADD affects me in social situations and switching gears, Its either hardcore school studying or hardcore relaxation and looking for fun and thrills. Failed to switch gears one day at school and paid for it

Re: Teen Roll Call!

Hey all!

I wasn't sure if I'd be "allowed" in the teen section - I know on some forums, once you turn 18 you can't access teen forums but then have access to adult ones.

But I'm 19 so technically still a teenager, my last year! Scaryyy!

So anyway, I'm Michaela, I live in Surrey, which is in the south of England, just down the road from Gatwick Airport.
I am yet to be DX'd with ADHD but I was DX'd with Aspeger's when I was 17. I'd always had issues socialising with and understanding others, both at home and school, and it wasn't until I started sixth form college that it totally hit me. I was just not fitting in with thr rest of my Performing Arts class, I thought by then my confidence would have gone up but no. It was my brother I think, that mentioned autism, and I'd read The Curious Incident of the Dog In The Night-Time, which obviously has the main character as someone with AS. I related to him quite a bit. So I read up on autism and AS and realised how much AS sounded like me, so I went to my doc, she did a referral to a psych, and after a lengthy process, taking 9 months in total (!) I got my DX. During that time I also read up on ADHD and noticed I had a lot of the traits for that, too. It's a long story, but basically from mentioning it to my psych on the day I got DX'd with AS (when I was 17 in 2007) to this day, I still havent' been to any appointments! I should hopefully get one within the next few weeks (after missing two of them over the last few months), third time lucky hopefully *fingers crossed*
I left sixth form early (in my second year) cos I was just not enjoying it, no motivation at all for it and just couldn't keep up. I have worked at Thorpe Park (a theme park in Surrey for the guys not in the UK) since March 2007 and absolutely love it, I LOVE theme parks! Should be starting there again shortly (I tried at another park, Chessington, but my AS did it's nasty job, leaving me not liking the change and not managing to get talking to any of the other staff at all).
Also, I have a lovely boyfriend called Rob, who I met at work in Sep 07. He is also quite ADHD and I'd love him to go see someone about it, but I doubt he'll ever get round to it

Re: Teen Roll Call!

Forgot to introduce myself. I'm Mitchell, i'm 16 and from South London. I was diagnosed with ADD when I was 13, but I think it was worse when I was little (memories of ripping bald patches on my head because it was so hard to concentrate! LOL). Anyway, I was finding life increasingly hard again and needed advice so after someone recommending it on youtube, I got signed up. So far its been excellent, all my Qs have been answered.

Re: Teen Roll Call!

Hey. I'm Jordan. About me, im from Texas. Im a 15 year old Sophomore. I was diagnosed last August ('08) and it was life changing. I have become a different person, a more developed person, a conscious person. Like, why didn't we do this earlier? I could have used it with my sinking grades in 6th-9th grade. I am goal oriented. I live my life to be productive on my own terms. I measure myself on my own scale. That probably comes off as cocky and arrogant, but im really a nice guy. If I let you in, we can really have a good relationship. I am on 50mg of Vyvanse, and I might start working my way down. I become a zombie. Randomly I think my sis has add also. There is no way that she can't. I can see my old self in her. Idk its a shame but I don't think I can be recommending perc's to my sister... Yea. One last thing about me. If I am going to do something, I am going to do it well. I will spend upwards of 30 minutes hammering out a post on the forum. It really doesn't iff me, as long as its for a productive and a good reason. Well, I am glad I am here! ~JBiscuit
