Brain Tumor & ADHD Tendencies

Hi,
I have been dealing with a benign brain tumor for 17 years (pituitary adenoma/acromegaly) and my wonderful ADHD boyfriend has concluded that I truly have ADHD tendencies. The tumor has definite hormonal issues that have presented some challenging characteristics. He has been patient & funny as he has peeled the back the layers of my complicated life and integrated it into his wonderfully complicated life. Anybody out there know of other adults who have developed ADHD tendencies due to other disorders that may not have been present as a child? Or any friends that are dealing with hormonal issues from tumors that replicate ADHD? I would love to connect with them. At times I feel completely overwhelmed because so much of my life, at this time, is so new. Connecting the dots is getting easier, now that I know the ADD part of my life; the way I think, feel & behave has a name...

Thanks so much...

Overwhelm is something I can relate to, and you do have a lot to digest.

Connecting the dots is a good thing and a good start.

I don't know anyone in your situation, but perhaps others will have something to add.

The good news is that AD/HD is the most treatable of all brain disorders. Wishing you all the best as you make your way!
