Newbie needing all the advise you can give
Jan 19, 2018 - 1:02 AM - by loulouinoz
I find it difficult to describe my feelings when I stumbled across this forum. I am just a mum with concerns for her adult son 22. He has not been diagnosed with anything and he is too old for me to make him see anyone so I have found this community and hope that you can offer some advice guidance direction.

Jan 18, 2018 - 4:08 PM - by diagoro
I'm going through a major period of reflection. Have been one and off Adderall the past 18 years (and tried a few other medications early on). I've also been treated by numerous doctors in various health plans as I moved from job to job.

I can't help but think my main problem, aside from the biological issues I was born with, was the lack of discipline and study habits reinforced into me as a kid. I grew up in a single parent household, and my mother had many of her own issues... [Read More]
