Hi Jackie,

Least I can do is welcome you to the forums. You'd be surprised how many people here are in the very same situation as yourself and may be able to answer your questions.

HI Jackie.

Nice to meet you, Welcome to the forums.

I too, self medicated until i accepted my "ailment", It's really not all that bad, I mean on the grand list to "bad things that happen to slightly good people" ADD is a blessing.

I could think of worse things, for sure.

Re: new member

Hi Jackie,

I'm sorry your son is going through such a difficult time. It is so hard to see our kids heading down a bad road.
I'm glad you found us. Welcome!

Re: new member Jackie from UK

Pls. ask your son to do "Super Brain Yoga". Search Youtube for more details. Two sittings a day of 10 counts each increasing each week by 5 counts.

Additionally this increases memory and concentration by atleast 5 times.

Results will be seen 2 to 3 weeks after start

Regards

Jackloe2002
