What’s the difference between a therapist and an ADHD coach? I have some professional struggles related to my ADHD that I need help with and I’m wondering who can help me best.

I would probably hire a therapist who specializes in helping people with ADHD. Therapists all have to have some sort of standardized liscencing . “Coaches” can be any person, without any legitimate credentials. I could set up a website right now and call myself a coach….

I’m seeing lots of posts about really bad losses. If you trade you’re going to lose money - hopefully not all the time, but many positions will be mistakes. But you need a process to find ideas and manage positions. Two books you should read are “The New Trading for a Livinng” and “The Laws of Trading.” Both look at psychology, process, and risk in different ways that can help you work out your own process. The next 18 months will be much harder than the last 18 - time to start learning.

When I was diagnosed (at 20 yo) I started on Adderall XR and my psychiatrist essentially took a “keep upping the dose until you feel side effects” approach, even though I still saw some benefits at a lower dose. I’m currently unmedicated and am somewhat hesitant to restart, but feel I could see some benefit and better stability with the help of medication.
