I seem to exhibit several symptoms and will definitely speak to a shrink soon. Here to get more perspective and some helpful tips.

For Plaintiff's attorneys, how big is your caseload? What kind of cases are the majority of them and are they in suit? I am currently handling 150+ mostly MVAs and premise liability cases, just about all in suit, (on top of about 10 DUIs and other small traffic matters) and I feel like I'm drowning and looking to jump ship. What is normal/to be expected? In NYC area if that matters

Just had a phone meeting with a staffing agency director. I'm capable and qualified, but I don't deal well with rapid fire questions or high friction interactions, and I kind of feel like that's how it was. I have another on-site interview with a different staffing agency in a couple hours, and now I'm nervous. It's also been several years since I've had to interview or changed jobs. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance!


My friend started his own firm and has been undercutting his previous top 25 firm since they charge hourly and usually have a preparer, reviewer and partner look at the return so it’s a lot of billable hours for a single shareholder physician. This appears to be a great market to go after since it seems like this type of client is too small for middle market firms and perfect for a soloprenuer that came from a middle market firm. 🤔

So we really like our wedding planner at first - she really sold us on her abilities and it was destination so everything was done virtually. After meeting her in person and getting a few months from the wedding no one is a big fan of her. I think she would be ok, but we found the most amazing girl when we did on-site visits that we hired for another service and she also does planning. We absolutely love her! We are thinking about parting ways with the original planner…


Does anyone have advice on pregnancy test timing and accuracy? I have a couple of tests that I haven’t taken yet but need to, I’m about 20-21 days past the sexual interaction and maybe 4-5 days past when I think I should have had my period.

I’ve seen conflicting advice on what time of day to take the test and all of that, but I’m just trying to know the best time to minimize a false negative. For context I really really don’t want to be pregnant/this was from a non consensual interaction 😕

32F, recently diagnosed, currently writing a doctoral dissertation and will be joining consulting in . Had doubts about taking medication. But I first had a 10 mg Adderall yesterday and worked on my dissertation for 17 hours.

I've been dragging writing this dissertation FOREVER (data collected back in 2018). In the past 5 years I’ve been a doctoral student , I have never focused on writing for more than 3 hours a day. I think I can finish this eventually.


Is there a stimulant treatment that is considered the best to try out first?


Was on adderall throughout college, but didn’t like how my body responded to it. After joining the workforce full-time, I think I need to start medication again. Any softer meds that work for you?


Has anyone tried Peter Shankman’s ADHD coaching? Thoughts, experience?


Got diagnosed with combined ADHD and general and social anxiety. Where do I start? Biggest difficulty that I am facing is that my spouse and family don’t believe such a thing exists and continue to downplay it and are in denial. I know there are resources that I can share with them but what hurts me the most is them not understanding/respecting my feelings.


Hello to anyone who joins!

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


Hey all,
Anyone else feel like this. I love consulting and doing different things and the fast paced nature but sometimes it’s too fast. In college I had extra time because I like having the ability to be meticulous, slow down and verify my work. Not to mention traveling is exciting as well except but how does everyone prevent their brain and life from feeling scrambled?


That moment when you don’t remember if you took your Adderall so you take one just in case 🙃


Who has a highly ADHD kid that threw such a tantrum that they actually broke their foot by stomping up the stairs?

Has anyone had any experience with drinking teas so you can sit down and focus? I read that black tea or green teas work best. Anyone have any experience drinking these teas? Anything else that would be recommended to help with focusing issues.


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.


On the blog idea I posted - can you let me know any areas you would want stories or info on, stuff you wish you’d known, stuff you’re still figuring out, or anything you’d be willing to write about? Could be anon or not. Just sussing out all the parts! For example, I know people who were diagnosed younger have had to battle with not feeling like they need meds to work effectively vs those getting access and diagnosis later having to trial and error while learning about it all fresh.


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.


Got diagnosed with ADHD after starting a new job. I continued working as I tried various medication as well as talk therapy. My job has given me a month notice to shape up or get fired. I’ve never told them I had ADHD. Can I prolonge this notice if I share my medical history this they have to make reasonable accommodation?


ADHDers who applied or are applying for joint MBA/MPP or MBA/MPA at Harvard, Stanford, Columbia etc? Please comment! Advice appreciated.


Happy Halloween 🎃 my fellow ADHD 🐠!Pros and cons for those of you who take adderall regularly? Just got diagnosed and will start the prescription today.


Have SO much technical documentation to read by the end of the week. Very dry, but detailed. Probably about 300 pages worth.

Even with meds, focus is tough. Content is just so dry, but I need to be able to understand it to an extent. Can anyone provide any tips/tricks??


Interesting bowl.

I've found ways to empower myself and make this more of a tool than liability - on most days.

Besides tech and wellness, what's one thing you do that helps?


Does time blocking tasks for the day work for anyone? I get caught up, unable to finish tasks within the time block and feel miserable.
