Does anybody else feel the need to work on projects with tangible applications/results? When I work on financial/IT work, I feel like the numbers are all floating in the air and don't really make a difference. On supply chain projects, I don't feel so much like I'm treading water because things are physically being moved and progress is easily measurable.

Yes, I know the feeling exactly. It does help to think big picture (because it is there, in the numbers, even if you don't think so), or even chat with your team about your projects and get their feedback.

This is exactly why I have to use physical, hand-written to-do lists and write as many steps down as necessary to help me feel like I'm actually accomplishing something. I've even been known to write something down AFTER I actually did it, just so I would have the satisfaction of crossing something off as done.

Additional Posts in ADHD Consultants

Does anyone know of any mentoring or support groups for professionals with ADD/ADHD? Or has any energy been expended here in an attempt to create one? I think it would be profitable for those struggling to hear success stories and learn some helpful strategies.


How do you all deal with the like, inability to start things and get motivated in the absence of an imminent deadline? Sometimes I feel like I can’t “activate” my brain without wild amounts of stress :/


Been looking into getting medication (adderall) after doctor suggested I talk to a specialist for a prescription. Seeing all these online docs that charge $200-300 for initial appt then $100 a month..


I’m great a vision and high level planning. I hate dealing with the intricate details at the next level and monitoring progress, especially during periods of low motivation/burnout which I’ve come to associate with my ADHD. Is this something you all deal with? If so, how do you manage?


Started vyvanse 30mg this week. Getting weird tension headaches. Ride it out or...?

Hello to anyone who joins!

How can I find a therapist who is a WOC. I feel like I never get through to a diagnosis because therapists spend like three sessions being shocked by the way my family acts during the initial assessment. I’ve tried searching my insurance portal (BCBS PPO) but I can’t find any nearby? Maybe online might work?


How do you redirect hyper-fixation? I’m trying to studying for a certificate. Instead I’ve found myself going down Reddit rabbit holes. I’ve already deleted social media/games/distractions off of my phone. I’ve already taken my medication for the day. It seems that I can get into a groove with just about anything but studying now a days.


Just been diagnosed though I've long suspected. The psychiatrist is diagnosing Vyvanse and a mild anti depressant - any tips or advice for me? I tend to be very conservative about medication and my mother would have a nervy b if she knew I was considering it because she thinks it will lead to addiction


I have sooo much work to do but im in bed stressing about all the work I need to do, not doing the work 🙄


How much would a 30 day supply of Vyvanse (30mg) cost me after insurance? I know this is going to vary by plan but I'm still curious as to know how expensive of a medication this is.

My pharmacy informed me that the insurance will not cover without authorization from the psych. My psych was wary about this & instead suggested Ritalin during my session. He mentioned that insurance companies want us to first try Ritalin because they are generally cheaper. How much truth is there to this? Thanks!

How do y’all deal with super low energy days? I cannot seem to wake myself up today. I got a lot of sleep and I’ve had coffee and taken my meds and my eyes are still shutting every 3 minutes


*Methylphenadite makes you more dyslexic.* I've been analysing this hypothesis for over a year now. As a late diagnosis, I'm quite certain when I started taking meds, despite never having this issue before, I would misspell words and say the completely wrong words without realising. I saw the same thing with a colleague on stimulants doing exactly the same i.e. say dollars when they meant euros. Other late diagnosed people, what is your experience?


Currently feel like I am letting my teammates down. It’s extremely frustrating being able to perform well one week and then be useless the next. Does anyone have any experiences with feeling like a burden to your coach, teammates, etc? Currently trying to be easier on myself and care less.


Started 18mg concerta last Monday. Got bumped to 36mg today, had two cups of coffee and cannot stop smoking hence feeling jittery, not anxious. Is it the caffeine or nicotine mixing with increased stimulants?


New here. Thankful this exists. Just wanted to post a reminder to everyone to be easy on themselves today.


Has anyone found an optimal balance / tips & tricks consuming caffeine with Vyvanse 20/30mg?

I find coffee hard to give up but combining with Vyvanse almost over stimulates me even with small 20mg dosage.
