To touch more on the A.D.D. medicine though...
I put up the following update on fb the other day-
I am an adult with A.D.D. Many people think they have it and often times when I mention it I get the same reaction- O I think I may have that too. Some may perhaps but those that don't have no idea whats it is really like. Some are understanding, some just laugh it off and most don't really understand it. Having A.D.D. can be a struggle. The mind is already a crazy place but when you are unable to properly maintain all the info swimming around up there it can be a little tricky just to get the normal day to day things done. Why am I posting this to fb? Well I want people out there struggling with it to know they aren't alone, I'd like to help change some of the stereotypical thoughts associated with it and after taking myself off meds for it about 7 years ago I just restarted medication so I am hoping to get a little bit of control of it myself. We all have issues in our lives, some admit them, some cannot but always remember no matter what you are struggling with you are never alone. Someone out there is struggling too. If you have an issue in your life don't shy away from it, let it make you an even better person!
I want to be an advocate for A.D.D. awareness. I want people to know they are not alone, it's rough at times but there are things out there you can do to help it! At the end of this blog I will post a link to a great website you can go to for information on both A.D.D. and A.D.H.D. and how to know if you or someone you know may have it and what resources are available to you. I'm also always here if you have any questions for me, just shoot me an email!
