Greetings ADDer world!
I was diagnosed with ADD at the age of 40 while being helped with my adult child of an alcoholic, ACOA, issues. It sure did explain a lot especially why I could not complete tasks. I contacted an ADD group back then, which was 40 years, but those people were parents with children that were ADD. Now there are books on adults with ADD.
I heard that there were drugs that could help me. A doctor prescribed Cylert, similar to Ritalin and was skittish to do so because it was a controlled substance. Like many ACOAer, I am an alcoholic in AA. My AA sponsor was wary of my taking Cylert. It only lasted a few days. It sped me up and did nothing for my ADD.
There is no H, Hyperactivity, in me. I almost wish there was. The activity could help me with my weight.
Hoping to hear from others,
