Margaret replied to tired-wife's discussion BORED out of his mind
"Just a question -is he on meds? If not, it may be time to start thinking about it. If he is, it may be time to look at the dose, or a booster dose for evenings for homework. Also, it sounds like executive functioning skills that are getting him…"

"I started taking sam-e (100 mg) yesterday, 10/26. Don't notice any big change, but am only on the 2nd dose. I think I want to take them when I get up in the middle of the night, so's to be a least the proper amount of time before and/or…"
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…"

Am I overdoing my ADD ADHD strategy, too much of a good thing?

Too Many ADD ADHD Cards

My wife says I have too many cards in my pocket. She's often right, and I do sometimes have trouble finding where I wrote down something.

Red card – the to do list of five.

Orange card – for to-dos that aren't ready to go on the red card, or there's not room for…

10 ADD ADHD tips

Great post

Homey 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:

  1. Focus. Nearly everyone with ADD/ADHD has trouble with this one.  It’s the nature of the condition, unfortunately.  This past Friday it took…

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

Identify the problem

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,…

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


“'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.


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.
