*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?

I have noticed my aphasia (forgetting words or saying the wrong words) getting stronger generally when I’m more stressed so it would track if you’re new to stimulants


For me, it is part of my ADHD or so I’ve been told, so unfortunately don’t know

Yup, right there with ya. also started whining/crying in my sleep 🙃. Now I’m too anxious to fall asleep in someone else home or on the airplane. So embarrassing

Can I ask age, when you got diagnosed and how long you’ve been using stimulants for?

I'm trying to suss out if a new member of our dept hates me or my team (she manages a different team).

My initial take is she's just hard to read and probably a tightly controlled introvert. My direct report felt she's 'cold as ice,' 'bristling' at our suggestions, and forming a clique that wants to do their own thing with no input from our team. He's triggered very easily, and there was no explicit evidence, just a 'vibe' so I wrote it off. (See 1st comment)

Hi all,

My boss makes jokes about me being from a different country whenever there is a work meeting or a gathering with coworkers, even though he knows where I am from. This usually occurs when I meet new work-related people or for example if I am in a situation that involves ethnic related subjects.

What is this? This is normal?


The first time I ignored that, but now it has become a pattern and is bothering me now. I am south-American working in the UK.

Long one - one of my best friends (10+ years) and I had a drink last week, I told her of my recent ADHD diagnosis and how we had noticed the generational trend (my mum & grandad as very similar symptoms wise and they acknowledge this, but not diagnosed). The friend mentioned her therapist has suggested she may had ADHD (inattentive type) - she then told me a few things like how she's absolutely neurotypical and she's never associated herself with neurodiversity etc, she made a ...

What are my fellow ADHDers thoughts on a couple things…do you feel ADHD is over diagnosed? Do you get irked when others say they must have ADHD when they just can’t focus and have no idea how ADHD actually presents for us? For context I got diagnosed as an adult (female at 30). I should have been diagnosed years ago. The meds have made a huge difference but I still feel at times maybe we over diagnosis this thing or give the meds out a little too easy to people “who just can’t focus”.

Embarrassing ADHD moments? I'll start

1. Drove home 2 hours tonight only to realize 2 hours later that I forgot my laptop bag

2. Went out of town and left meat out the freezer. Called an uber driver to use my padlock to get into my place and put it back

3. Driven off with the gas pump in my car. Twice

4. Walked in, paid for gas, walked out, got in my car and drove off

5. Forgot gyro meat in my air fryer for 2 weeks.


I started taking Adderal, 2.5 g which is not really a lot. It didn’t really help with my focus, instead I felt restless and somehow nervous and really thirsty. And it made me clench my teeth. I do grind my teeth during nighttime but never experienced this in the daytime. Does it take time to get used to it?


Struggling with ADHD 😞 can someone recommend a book that provides insight and organization/coping skills?
