Background and Facts

Average testosterone levels have been decreasing since the 80s. This is also about the same time that ADD/ADHD meds took off.

Amphetamines, what the majority of ADD/ADHD meds contain, have been shown... [Read More]

Every ten years or so I burn my life to the ground. It just happened again. I'm so close to just being done with it all.

Everyone talks about the day to day or micro symptoms of ADHD (forgetting things, f*****g things up, being late, losing interest etc) but its the very same at a macro level.

First thing that happened is I lost interest in my job. It happened just like turning off a light. I got to masters level, reached the top and then hit self-destruct. The... [Read More]

I can't function right everyday. My symptoms are a little calmer today but I can't guarantee that in a few hours. It fluctuates back and forth. I finally forced myself to find time in between my shifts to clean my car and do laundry and run some important errands. I have been procrastinating these things for two weeks, except for the laundry part since my sister does it sometimes. I am very impatient. Like even putting on my clothes for work. I have to dress fast. I feel like I am racing... [Read More]

Is there anyone else who can't accept their diagnosis?
Mar 13, 2018 - 8:14 PM - by Fuzzy12
I suspect that many people doubt their diagnosis and I wonder what we (doubters) have in common and how common it is have such a tough time in believing in your diagnosis. To be honest I'm pretty convinced that I don't have ADHD but I can't figure out why the ADHD label seems to fit my particular issues so well. I mean if it looks, walks and quacks like a duck but it's not a duck what else could it be?

My favourite theory of course is that I'm just crazy, lazy and stupid. Mainly... [Read More]
