Hi everyone,

So I've decided to go through with my first ADD medication at age 26.

Because I have a heart condition I can't take adderall or many other stimulant meds, but since checking with my doctors I have started low dose Vyvanse xl. (30mg, once daily)

All I got to say is wow! It's like my eyes have been closed to what being "normal" is like. I never knew that something could quiet my mind and help me to focus so well on things. It's like I get... [Read More]

Let me warn you, while as an ADDER I need to learn ways to relax, enjoy the great outdoors, have spontaneous bouts of fun, if you think for one second, golf is the answer, you have likely gone completely out of your mind.


I'll give you one reason right now. There are too many to list in my lifetime.

Trying to strike a ping-pong size ball around a thousand acres of beautifully landscaped scenery, by itself, is indicative of psychopathology. No adult... [Read More]

Apr 22, 2017 - 2:10 AM - by AmroIb

But I'm interested on how many ADHD struggle with daily tasks when not medicated ?. is it just me ? For me some tasks... [Read More]

Wishing I was really smart
Apr 21, 2017 - 5:42 PM - by icantbelive93
Hey guys,

So my biggest wish in life is to be really smart, like above average smart. Ideally genius level. I know this might sound really dumb. I have always been jealous of highly intelligent people. There are times I feel smart and than there are times I feel really stupid. I know the answer is to just accept myself and my intelligence level, whatever that may be. It's just sooo hard. I think it also has to do with that my dad always had really high expectations of me that I... [Read More]

Why do I keep getting in my own way?
Apr 21, 2017 - 3:12 PM - by WheresMyMind
I mean it just that way - if I could figure out WHY I keep getting in my own way...well, I must be doing it to satisfy something. Whatever that something is, if I knew what it was, maybe I could satisfy it another way - if it's an inner belief, I can change that. I just can't put a handle on it.

The daily struggle is "doing stuff", so keep that in mind while I start at the top.

Top level:
My highest goals, according to me, are:
- Get my business going
