Teri Reiter replied to kimberly green's discussion Vyvanse and Adderall
"Hi there. I didn't get diagnosed until 51 so I can relate to the frustration. I've been on both Adderall and Vyvanse and the help is very subtle for me. I do believe it's helped. I like Adderall because I take one in the am and one at…"

10 ADD ADHD tips

Great postHomey put up such a great ADD ADHD post that I was tempted to just copy it here, but that didn't seem quite right.  So I'll compromise, and just copy one of her strategies:Focus. Nearly everyone with ADD/ADHD has trouble with this one.  It’s the nature of the condition, unfortunately.  This past Friday it took me all day to clean the kitchen.  I kept getting distracted.  I’ve opened half the curtains on the living room windows but forgotten to open the other half.  I’ve fixed milk for…See More

Sabrina A replied to kimberly green's discussion Vyvanse and Adderall
"For me, I found Adderall gave me horrible insomnia. I also didn't see a lot of improvement, but that's apparently b/c I respond better to the Methyldate (Ritalin) family. My son is the opposite, and has successfully been on Vyvanse for 4…"

ADD ADHD and technological challenges

 The iPhone

I'm walking again for exercise, doing well. I was delighted to find that I can use my iPhone and dictate things while I'm walking! Great multitasking, conservation of time, efficiency, etc. etc. etc.

But I wish I could find a free app that lets me dictate and converts it to text and  saves it on the iPhone, even when I turn it off. I use Dragon…

Getting lost with ADD ADHD

Cognitive maps

From a course on learning: Starting as babies, we develop two kinds of cognitive maps of our environment. One is directions – go north three blocks, turn left at the pornography store, and right at the next light  –.

The other is a visual image of the landscape which we gradually build up as we explore it.…

I Don't Wash Wine Classes Anymore

Every time I put wine glasses in the dishwasher, no matter how I do it, they break.

That's just part of my ADD ADHD.

Make a strategy

I do not put wine glasses in the dishwasher anymore. I rinse them and set them on the counter for my…

ADD ADHD time wasters and addicitions

Time wasters, Addictions

I was addicted to computer wargames. They were taking over my time and my mind.            I tried many strategies,  but eventually had to just get rid of them all.                          Nothing else worked.

Next, I got hooked on Free Cell, though not as bad. It's gone from my computer now.

Currently, I have chess and poker on my iPhone. I only use them at opportune moments and briefly. I don't think they're a problem,…

Stimulants and Religion, misuse and abuse

My friend Ken sent a great post today; I have to use it.

What do stimulants and religion have in common?

1. They can both be misused and abused.

2. They were both the subject of such a…

Doing the easy thing

The easy thing in ADD ADHD

I'm working on the fourth draft of the fourth book and toying with the fifth and sixth.     The writing is fairly easy,  enjoyable, therapeutic, and always rewards me  with a sense of accomplishment when I get a few pages done.

Other things I need to do are less enticing and are piling…

7 Crucial Tips for Parents and Teachers of Children with ADHD "Uncommonly helpful, down-to-earth, immensely practical and readable Book." - David A. Crenshaw, Ph.D., ABPP. Director of Rhinebeck Child and Family Center, LLC

Books

“'One Boy's Struggle' is a real eye-opener! Bryan writes of hope and despair, and the all-too-common conflict between desperately wanting to achieve and please, yet suspecting that you’ll fail again… and soon.”
-Dr. Edward Hallowell

Book on Doubt

Writer's Doubt is not specifically about ADHD. It is about how I, with ADHD, overcame doubt and became a prolific writer. For anyone who has ever felt doubtful about what they are capable of.

Caution

Please remember that when discussing medication and / or supplements each member is responsible for his or her comments. Each person's experiences may be different and no one should make any changes or try anything new with regard to medication or supplements without talking to his or her doctor first.
