How do you wake up and do the same thing over and over again every single day? I feel flawed that I can’t. I’m wondering if I should start taking my meds everyday rather than just the weekdays for work. Because the meds help me stay on track with chores and life but something about taking stimulants everyday…I feel so guilty…

Guys I took my Ritalin, and I feel better again. Maybe because things are quieter and I can focus on one thing instead of being overwhelmed by everything?

I feel the same way. I think what’s helped me feel better on weekends is just being ok with doing less. I think as ADHD people we are always thinking about doing “more more more” and not pausing to think: is it actually important? What do I actually need to prioritize? It’s definitely easier to do this while on meds, but practicing this has helped me to improve my approach for when I’m not on meds. Also, just being kinder to myself has helped a ton.

Maybe Saturday will be my rest day for meds then.

Sunday will be my laundry, cleaning, meal prep, and client planning. Of which, the Ritalin will help.

So I just had 2 tables fight in a restaurant. Table A coughed and table B said oh covid and laughed. Happens that table A is Asian and table B is white.
Table A assumed the joke is because they are Asian and table B says no, everyone got covid not just Asians it’s just a bad joke; who is right?
Table A escalated to a fight and had to be both separated and asked to leave. Who is right?

I’ve been on depo provera for 11 years. It’s been amazing- I haven’t had a cycle in 11 years. My body decided it was time to have one in Jan and then skipped three months and here I am again with a cycle.

I 100% do NOT want a cycle. I was the worst human being when I had them and my life has been great without it. 😂

What things did you find helpful to help reduce effects from ADD/ADHD?

Hello fellow fishes!

Im trying to understand if I have add/adhd and the internet research is pointing towards a yes.

Im still a masters student and worked a bit (which was a disaster due to excel mistakes and inattentiveness) and have been a struggling inattentive and non focused student since ever..

Would you have any recommendations to better evaluate add/adhd or manage it at this point of time?

Ofc I am going to get professional help in due course but just wanted to know from you all.
