Stress and Phsyical Work Do they help?
May 22, 2017 - 4:01 AM - by renovator
Hi,
The following helps me focus, and I just wanted to know whether the following helps other people and whether there is any evidence for it (I am mainly Predominantly Hyperactive/Impulsive)

- large amounts of stress - taking on lots of work.
- leaving things to the last minute
- working till I am exhausted - At work I produce far more after hours than during normal work time. The more tired I am the more productive I am in thinking work
- physical... [Read More]

Suddenly huge sleep problems
May 21, 2017 - 4:45 PM - by Fuzzy12

May 18, 2017 - 12:49 PM - by goldsprinkles
I've never really suspected or thought that I may have ADHD until a few months ago. Since I was a child, school was very rough for me because I was never able to complete assignments. I barely graduated high school and college was almost unbearable. I always thought I was unmotivated, lacked drive, and was SUPER LAZY.
