I was diagnosed at age 9 as learning disabled, I look forward to being good Friend's with all of you, If you want to talk to me just leave me a note in my inbox
Diagnosed with ADHD as an adult, made sense of a LOT of my life when I finally got the diagnosis. In many ways it's a disability but in many others, it's a gift. Looking forward to connecting with others here! :)
38 year old mom with ADHD and Aspergers, and learning Disabilities ( including dyslexia) Nerd-birther of two nerdfighters 7 yo bronie with sensory integration and auditory processing dysfunction, and my 12 year old daughter who is ADHD high functioning autism with OCD, dyslexia etc. I homeschool them due to their struggles. as of late they are busy playing minecraft and i'm busy trying to find ways to teach them IN minecraft :)
Currently writing a non fiction book for under 20's with ADHD at the same time as writing a non fiction self help book for parents of young children with sensory integration issues ( in autism/adhd/ocd etc)
on generic concerta or my own ADHD and it works much better than the name brand concerta for me with the eating issue.
Aside form that i'm a singer/songwriter, photographer and folk art painter, when I'm not on mom duty.
I'm not legal... XD not recognized by Dr.s or what have you, but Dyslexic all the same. And loving it. 18 still have troubles with B's and D's, on bad days reading with a marker or place-keeper, takes a second to read 5's or 2's on a digital clock and spelling things completely wrong. Though not usually backwards... :S
If Concerta isn't working for you, there are always other options, Adderal and Dexedrine for instance. I'm on Ritalin now, but I was on Dexedrine at first. Apparently it worked too well and I became so hyperfocused I barely registered my boyfriend's existence enough to talk to him until one day I forgot to take my pills. O_e
I used to take Concerta it drove me up a wall. Hopefully it worka out better for you then it did me.
On a side note "oh I forgot about my terrible working memory"this was entirely unintentional, hooray for not proof reading my posts
