I just found this bowl and I am really glad it exists. After a few years of managing my ADHD, the past few month have been really hard and I am suffering from anxiety for the first time since college because of it. Even just the few posts I have read have made me feel a little bit better.

Hi OP. I'm feeling the same way. Open to connecting if you'd like to vent or compare notes. Just DM me :)

I’m going through a period like that too. Just keep in mind that it will get better!

Happy to chat as well

I have been suffering for years too after I was diagnosed last 2015. I am glad this bowl helped with remedies and made me feel that I am not alone in my journey.

It's nice to hear how we've all found a safe space within this corner of the internet. We're glad to be here for you. It's nice to be able to open up about our struggles without judgement.

Hey! I’m new here and would like some input. I’ve been working in a new position for almost 5 months. In that time I’ve witnessed some unethical and lots of unprofessional behavior. I’ve been yelled at and berated by my coworker 3 separate times because of minor errors. I’m ready to quit. There are so many major issues in this company that I don’t know if I want to subject my mental health to this degree of toxicity. I just don’t know how to move forward from here.

Dyslexia! After having our kindergartener son tested (privately) related to ADHD, we were told he may have dyslexia too (which would explain why he struggles so much with phonics but is amazing at sight words). He has a very high IQ. As a voracious reader, I am finding myself unexpectedly distraught that something that I have loved so much will be such a struggle for him, and worrying that it will affect his motivation and may steer him away from things he may otherwise love.

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.
