I will say on a GOOD note that its calmed me down LOTS. I always felt like a outcast everywhere I went and people made fun of me because I was different . I have always been a impulse spender of money and now i am... The regulations on controlled substances are much tougher now, so my doctor added the ADHD diagnosis so he can continue prescribing them. something before finishing d sentence, im long gone, usually they have to shout to stop me, I was quite easily distracted by phone ringing. I did the classic check-the-box quiz and I scored quite high.
The doctors put me adderall,but it makes you feel like a robot. My mind bounces off it all like a rubber ball, no place to rest. or Dexedrine back in the 80's to give anti-depressant a boost. once in operating theater, d phone ring, in split second I turn toward d saw her staring at me.. for many years, it wasn't until about 5 years ago that I was diagnosed by a professional. It is also very hard to diagnose even for the professional, let alone yourself. My husband did the same quiz to see what his perception of my habits were and it was higher. I am on meds, but it still causes problems for me at work (teacher) and in my relationships (fiancé).
