Is anyone on ADHD MEDS right now?
I've had to be my own coach so been researching ADHD and came across some real Pioneers and advocates.: Rick Green who heads up totallyadd.com and
Jessica McCabe- Youtube 'Failing at Normal: An ADHD Success Story.
I am leary of going on adhd meds due to my extreme Sensitivity. Didn't have a great response to Depression meds in the past and have long not been on them.
But might have no choice here...feels like one MORE thing I have to take care of that I didn't plan on!

Ask doctor about starting weight lifting/body toning/light weights. Exercise increases endorphines?

My life plans get side tracked too. To the point can’t make a plan.

I was misdiagnosed as having ADHD and was prescribed aderall it destroyed my life. I guess a lot of psych disorders are very similar it turns out I have Bipolar disorder where I get highs like im ADHD and lows where I can't do anything. I just know that after 2 years with a lot of lows I'm doing better with the appropriate medication and therapy.

@Junior726 this is interesting to me regarding aderall. I think I’ve had enough info about it as an adult to veer me away from it but therapist is thinking about other traditional meds for ADHD. I don’t want to do any of them really. I wish I could control in a different way. Your progress sounds encouraging. Can you share which ‘appropriate’ med or therapy has helped you w BPD?
