I am a 48yo. male. As a child I had severe ADHD ,problematic behavior, learning issues, ect., exerbaserbated by a bpd./n mother. At 12 I was first hospitalized after hitting a teacher. Put on ritilen, until I stopped taking it a few years later. Had many struggles, got married to the most amazing woman I could ever hope to find, more struggles, but my ADHD had all but disappeared. I got a job that I loved, all was good.

At work, they implemented a new computerized system that I... [Read More]

We have a teenage daughter in the 8th grade who was diagnosed with ADHD about two months ago. The diagnosis was made by a psychologist who conducted an assessment. In this case, the ADHD manifests more as inattentiveness than hyperactivity. I would describe it as a mental fog, for lack of a better analogy. This kid has always been quite stubborn. She enjoys sports and making things (like woodworking) much more than academics. She thinks that academics are useless. In the previous two years in... [Read More]

Looking for Insight
Apr 27, 2017 - 3:28 AM - by yeatheboys

Complete ED while on Vyvanse?
Apr 26, 2017 - 8:46 PM - by SecretlyaFish
So, I've noticed or not noticed a trend I guess with Vyvanse. But only in the last few days have I begun to think maybe this is what it is. I have not been able to gain an erection once I take the drug and it kicks in, at all. This morning, I woke up with an erection. Not really all that hard, my erections have been weak lately, but an erection regardless.

I woke up, took my pill, then laid in bed for awhile. I decided to well, do my business. 2 hours later. It didn't matter what... [Read More]

What do you fear the most or get most frustrated about when it comes to your ADHD?
Apr 26, 2017 - 12:37 PM - by KCTang
Hi guys, just wanted to hear a bit about your experiences. I'm trying to wrap my head around my problems and hope you guys can relate, and maybe share some of what you're going through.


For me, I've had this diagnosis since 2007, so it's hit the 10 year mark.

I used to think that I'd have things more in order by this time. Now I'm 33, coming to 34, and I still feel relatively unaccomplished.

My big fear is dying without... [Read More]
