This is a strange question.. but I just wonder.. Has anyone known of anyone that has ADD or ADHD and smoked marijuana and gotten the opposite side affects. What I mean is... when a person has ADD and drinks caffeine... the caffeine will usually calm them down. That is the oppostie affect then it would have on a "normal" person without ADD. SOOOOO... When a normal person smokes marijuana they tend to have the side affects of laziness, munchies and calm. Has anyone heard of anyone that smokes and it makes them hyper, not eat/no appetite, and have insomnia????" I know this sounds crazy.. but jus Read More »
I am 55 years old and have had this problem my whole life. I have a lot of energy, eat a good diet and sleep 7 to 8 hours a night. My problem is that whenever I have to concentrate on something, a difficult book or lecture for example, for more than ten minutes I drop off. I can go longer if I am really fresh in the morning, but other than that I tend fall in to a deep sleep. This has made it difficult to learn math, understand physics, or even learn government rules and regulations.

My husband and I just got into a major arguement about parenting. he thinks I'm lying when I say I'm trying. Its so frustrating. What happens is our ADHD child, doesn't do things the first time he is asked so I did the perscribed 3 times, or so I thought, and my hubby says I did it a lot more.

Then it turned into a free for all. I repeat myself all the time and I lie when I say I don't. I'm the reason our son is doing poorly. I ask too many questions. Spout out too many ideas. *sigh*

I analyze. Its what I do at work, its what I do naturally...that's why I'm good at my job! :( Read More »

I've been living with ADHD since I was very young, possibly since birth. I wasn't diagnosised till about age 6 or 7. I've been on different medications and tried different tactics to keep it under control. I'm 20 now and it's worked for the most part. I'm on a medication that helps hugely, and while I still have struggles it's not as hard as it would be without the medication.

I'm just kind of curious about something I've noticed with my ADHD. I've had fluxuations of high and low symptoms and difficulty. I'll be fine for 3 or 4 months, sometimes up to a year, then suddenly my symptoms and Read More »

I am a young adult with 2 jobs in completely opposite. I am a millworker by day (40hr/week) and a jr web developer/programer by night (20-30hr/week).

On days that I go straight from one job to the other, I also have a hard time switching gears and getting into/staying productive at my desk job after a day of screaming saws and wood slinging.

I know and even work with people that take on Read More »
