Anyone else here give up easily on things? I lose interest in almost everything I try, whether it’s the GMAT, a hobby, etc. How to motivate yourself and stay positive at the same time?

Have you ever gotten in trouble at work for your ADHD tendencies? If so, what were the repercussions & how did you handle?

Has anyone tried Keto and experienced a improvement in ADD symptoms? I’m really trying to get off medication at some point. I’ve tried exercise, but need more. Thanks! :)

On 15mg adderall xr daily for ~1yr. When I’m consistent with it, i notice i lose things less and am a bit more organized, but don’t feel more energized/focused. Should i try something else?

Anyone else find that creative thinking tasks i.e. brainstorming / issue diagraming are harder on medication? Recently started adderall and noticed that I can’t rattle off ideas as quickly now

Anyone here with impulse problems? I’m really bad with shopping if it’s a pressured/incentivized situation. Also with eating... I know I need to stop eating crap but always end up giving in (CONT.)

Any female ADHD Consultants here? I’ve never been diagnosed but have a bit of suspicion. From what little research I’ve done, seems much harder to diag in women since there’s no clear phenotype.

I’m most comfortable with moving around places to sit / changing my posture at work e.g. 3 hours spent at standing desk then the next on the couch. I just wonder how ADHD ppl work on client site...
