annetterfly: I hate it when people are like “BLAH BLAH BLAH ADHD IS NOT A REAL THING” then fucking ignore the people WITH ADHD when they say “Um hey actually I think I know my brain better than you do and you don’t know my life or my experiences.” How dare you tell me that my experiences are invalid because they don’t fit your shitty theory.
Me: Am I hungry or tired? I can't tell.
Body: I dunno. What are you asking me for?
Focalin XR: I know but I'm not telling anyone! *Maniacal laugh*
Babygirl: I think the worst though is the fact... →
rabbitholesandwonderlands: I think the worst though is the fact that my family forgets I have A.D.D. Like, I have to remind them on days like this that I was legitimately diagnosed and it doesn’t always just disappear. And I can’t just go ‘read a book’ because I don’t pay attention to what I’m reading. And when I realize…
I'd like to tell you all my bad ideas.: 7/26/12 →
my-faulty-brain: I gotta be honest, everything is really hard right now. I’ve probably said it before but the thing that’s really hurting me is that I grew up being told that my ADD would go away, and no longer be an issue, by the time I was 16. Now here I am, less than a month away from that birthday and I still…
A few quick thoughts on medication.
A few thoughts on medication, since this postgot me thinking: If your medication makes you feel “jittery” or “amped” or “hyped,” it’s possible that a medication change could help you. I started out taking dex, which helped but also made me feel like I’d drunk too much coffee. I switched to Ritalin (methylphenidate) and felt much better, much...
drop dem panties fuh me gurl: Apparently if you... →
calliopretty: Apparently if you don’t need adderall to balance you, it gets you high, but if you do need it, you don’t feel any of that. I have been diagnosed with ADD, so I take the adderall to help me think straight, since, if you’ve been following for a while, you know my mind is constantly working at…
This is a story...: I’m tearing up because I’m... →
oh-missdelaney: I’m tearing up because I’m using my phone calculator on my 3rd grade adventures computer game… Like to be fair I set it on the challenge level for Math but honestly like am I THAT bad at Math? I’m pretty certain I’m getting more and more dyslexic as time goes on. I felt so bad and embarrassed…
Fuck you pharmacy and doctor's office
joans-own-words: Fuck you for making me spend three hours today trying to get my medication, only to tell me that I can’t have them until the day AFTER I take my last one. Fuck you and your controlled substances. Control someone else. I need my meds.
queerattentiondeficit: I’m officially on 54mg of Concerta a day. really psyched, can’t wait to get my focus back and start getting shit done! lol today my mom told me “pills don’t teach skills!” which is really true. Now that I’ve got the tools to stay focused (the pills) and understand my brain better, I’ve got to start educating myself. I’m gonna start reading “Is You, Me or Adult ADHD” (i...
Me: I can't focus for the life of me. WHY IS THIS HAPPENING? I took my damn adderall.
Adderall: I don't like Mondays. I don't feel like working today.
Me: You kidding me? I need to finish this research paper it's due tomorrow!
Adderall: But I don't wannaaaaa...
Me: DAMMIT JUST WORK I DON'T HAVE TIME FOR THIS.
Me: I hate you so much.
Unclutter My Spaces, (ful)Fill my Voids: Epiphany:... →
fulfillmyvoids: I’m missing things…basic things about reality and the way the world functions, and how to be a functioning adult. I’m missing basic circuitry or programming codes. I haven’t picked up some very basic facts for how life works.. If real progress in life depends on building up and maintaining…
Look, a Squirrel!: Vyvanse Dosage →
look-a-squirrel: I didn’t realize that I’m on the lowest possible dosage (75 mg a day) for Vyvanse. I figured this out when Brennan and I were moving out and had to stay up all night to finish packing up our apartment. I looked up whether I could take another dose and of course I could! Next time I go into the…
kathrynkonundrum: I didn’t take my adderall this morning!! Guess what I have done? My tendency to hyper-focus kicked in. On what, you may ask? On tumblr. Of all the things that I could have been doing, I zeroed in on the most unproductive. Why must I be so unproductive without my adderall? Bright side: I have watched a lot of Doctor Who and my queue has like three weeks worth of crap in it....
Brink of Insanity: Let us back up a bit. →
kathrynkonundrum: I have a tendency to make fun of the fact that I have ADD. I’m a space cadet when I’m off my adderall, and many of my sentences are left unfinished, my thoughts half started, and I will admit that I have almost walked out of my house without pants on. More than once. I have gotten into the habit…
That ADHD Moment
thatadhdmoment: …When you cant focus on just one show so you are watching two shows at once…one on your laptop and one on the tv and you have it perfectly timed so on commercial breaks, you are switching between the two without missing a beat.

vesperamor: Hmph. I wish it was like my Prozac and like… built up in my system. And stayed there. I want more than a few hours of clarity. But it’s only the second day taking it. I need to give it time. Patience. But I’m really paranoid. What if I don’t even have ADHD, so the medicine won’t work like it’s…

drawswithpens: who don’t want me to play with my hair, or touch my face, or play with my necklace, or talk to myself, or tap my feet, or doodle… you seem obsessed with my body and all its unauthorized movements. you know what i have to say to you? FUCK OFF. and you what i do when i’m alone, when i’m away from…
