I'm in need of some advice

Hi, I'm 18 years old. I have ADHD, depression, OCPD. I've been taking concerta ever since I was 9 years old. The thought of having depression never crossed my mind while taking this medication, until I got out of my toxic 3 year relationship. I wish I would've left sooner, I constantly say, "Its my fault" or "I could've done better" I hate the pity and the "I'm sorry" when ever I tell this story. ...

Vent and questions to you

Hi all,
I've not been diagnosed but have strong suspicion that I could fit in here ... don't get me wrong, it's not one of your "Do I have ADD?" posts - that is, I'm not asking you to comment on that although ofc you may, if you want to - it's more intended as a bit of venting with some explicit questions attached to it.
For those of you who don't like to read ...

Learning to Cope With Adut ADHD

Hey everyone. Greetings and thanks for stopping by for a read.

I won't start with my name yet until I get to know the site a bit better, but I'm in Eastern Canada and I'm 57 years old. Last year I got in trouble with the law when a lot of abuse from my past finally caught up with me. I did nothing to hurt anyone, I just had stuff I shouldn't have had.

I ...

Just need a friend

I'm hoping to find here someone with whom I can relate. I just need to hear (or read) someone say, "I understand." The only family I have are a husband, an adult daughter who lives far away, and an adult niece who stays with me on and off. They are sick of hearing the word ADD. In fact they're rarely interested in anything I want to say. Now my horror story: I wasn't diagnosed until ...

Anyone feeling this way?

My whole life I had this personality of being clumsy, talkative, funny, positive, and distracted. People knew me and accepted me like this. Since I got diagnosed, and started medication, I totally feel like another person, i don’t joke as much as I usually do, I prefer to be on my own, and even people ask me if I’m okay, it’s like my emotions were silenced or flattened. However, it has helped me a lot ...

What can I do for my coordination?

I don't know if any of you are this way, but I find ADHD has made me extremely clumsy and uncoordinated. I think I may have poor neuromuscular control, but I'm not sure if I can be tested or not.

I have always had trouble with holding or carrying things since I was a child. I also tend to stumble when walking.

Is there anything that can be done for this?
