  1. I really struggle with remembering to do something if I'm already doing something when I get asked/remember it.

  2. Thanks, thats good to know! Mine is with an NHS doctor but presumably it'll be the same kinda thing?

  3. I dont have anything from childhood, and same with trying to remember specific examples. My assessor was really understanding about it. Hopefully that's the same with yours too.

  4. I cant even imagine being able to look after not only myself, but also a much smaller, much squishier version of myself that depends on me for everything.

  5. Just to get it out of the way. Have you been avoiding caffeine and vitamin c with your meds? Those are inhibitors to the stimulant being absorbed and utilized by the body.

  6. I haven't been eating anything with high vitamin C in the morning, and I don't really drink anything with a lot of caffeine in it anyway, so I don't think that's that's issue.

  7. For some reason when I'm having to articulate things that I feel, or things I want. There's like this giant stop sign at my throat and no words can get past. Even if I know how I want to answer.

  8. Does the block prevent you from typing out what you want to say too? It might be a little odd to suddenly whip out your phone and type but if it works don’t knock it.

  9. I can write it. I've straight given my doctor a letter before because I wouldn't have been able to say most of it.

  10. I have my dog's pawprint. She passed away a few years ago, but she was everything to me growing up. I do want to get more but I dont know what. The one I have was just so meaningful to me that it was a no brainer.

  11. Not yet. I've been on medication for about 4 months. (Been on every available dose of elvanse and just started on concerta this week) but so far none of them have given me any kind of identifiable feeling that they're working.

  12. I'VE BEEN SITTING HERE FOR HOURS!!!! TELLING MYSELF THAT I ACTUALLY NEED TO GET UP AND DO THE THINGS I SERIOUSLY HAVE TO, BUT I CAN'T, AND THAT'S SO DUCKING FRUSTRATING! I HAVE SO MUCH HOMEWORK THAT I'VE LEFT UNTIL TODAY, WHICH WAS SUCH A BAD DECISION (THANKS BRAIN!!!??) AND CLEANING I HAVEN'T FINISHED, AND RANDOM STUFF THAT I REALLY WANT TO DO, BUT I HAVEN'T, FOR LIKE 6 MONTHS! THIS HAPPENS SO OFTEN BUT I'M SO TIRED OF THIS OMG.

  13. I HOPE YOU FOUND YOUR MOTIVATION. IF YOU SEE MINE. TELL IT TO COME HOME SO I CAN DO THE DISHES... OR LITERALLY ANYTHING AT ALL TODAY.

  14. Anything another than this. Maybe a shower

  15. I think I know how you feel. It's like I WANT to want to do things, but I dont, or can't do them.

  16. 33F. I've been told by doctors for a long time that I had depression but I've never responded well to any treatment (medical or therapies)

  17. At age 29, I have the nearly same exact experience as you. I had been struggling post-college, even with depression/anxiety treatment. After seeing my life's quirks and difficulties being shared by people with ADHD, I initially requested a test from my psychiatrist in January.

  18. I've only tried the one medication, at increasing strengths, so far. It's not causing any really unbearable side effects. But I'm also not really noticing a difference to the things that I really struggle with.

  19. I'm in the titration period of treatment on Elvanse (lisdexamphetamine). I've been on 20mg and 40mg so far but I'm not feeling any benefits yet.

  20. My cat, who I love more than words can say, and who is the cutest, most special boy in the world has a habit of flinging his litter against the side of his litter tray after he's used it. And there is no sound that makes me more infuriated in the world. Its such a sharp intrusive noise. I cant shout at him, because he's just doing his business, so I just sit there mad about it.

  21. I want to see research into if there's a link between Amblyopia (lazy eye) and ADHD.

  22. Thats an interesting theory, I also have ADHD and a lazy eye. I never would have thought about there being a connection, so it would be interesting to see what any research findings would be.

  23. The first day I took my meds I picked a day when I was in work with a colleague who used to be a nurse, I kept the advice sheet for the medication in my bag just in case and let one of my managers know where it was. I also think I checked my pulse and blood pressure about 6 times throughout the day.

  24. I have the same problem. When I'm trying to speak about certain things I just physically can't get the words out, even though I know what I want to say.

  25. Feeling like I’d never be able to find “my passion” and stick to it.

  26. So much this. I always got so jealous of people who I though had found their perfect hobby or calling that allowed them to dedicate themselves fully even during tough or boring parts.

  27. Rather than cleaning my room regularly. Wait until its an absolute mess and then move all my furniture around. (Didn't get the dopamine from keeping on top of cleaning, it had to look different from when I started)

  28. Reading your post was like looking in a mirror. Before my assessment I felt like I'd spent so long reading about ADHD and looking into it, and for once it felt like something fit.

  29. Thanks a lot for the comment! I read it a couple of hours before my appointment and it really helped.

  30. I'm glad it all went well for you. Good luck going forward.

  31. Remember that people online are rarely medical professionals, they are only describing their own experiences.

  32. I also did really well in school, because I found school easy. I didn't have to study very much because I could work things out when I needed to.

  33. Take it with food in the morning! Huuuge difference vs taking it on an empty stomach

  34. What kind of difference is it taking with food vs without? Is it more effective or do you find there are less side effects? Just asking because eating in the morning is a struggle for me (time management issues mostly)

  35. Thank you for taking the time to write to me! Okay so it seems like I'm not just being crazy, and it is something that people experience, I probably experience it much stronger because of my panic disorder. Not sure now if I should just stop it completely and move on. Does 20mg help you focuswise and are you more productive? Thank you again and I'm sure I'll sort myself out soon ( hopefully ) xx

  36. I haven't noticed any improvements yet, if anything I'm finding it harder at the moment to focus on anything but it has only been a few days so far so I'm not throwing in the towel yet.

  37. It was kind of the same for me on 20mg, I felt slightly different but 3,4 hours after I'd taken the medication I would crash and again wouldn't be able to do anything. Which heavily improved on 40mg, so I'm confident you will also feel a difference, but the fact that you are slowly upping the dose is also very important. I'm happy you are not experiencing anxiety!

  38. You too, best of luck. Here's hoping we can both get the right treatment locked in soon

  39. Not an obsession exactly, but I watched a YouTube review of taiko drum controllers for the taiko no tatsujin game series that are available for Nintendo switch (I don't own any games in the series) and thought "great now I have to have opinions about this"
