Hi this sounds really tricky and definitely a problem that I worry about encountering.I have just been diagnosed with ADHD at 29 years old and have lived my life with swirling on a chair, jumping from one task to another and having so many tabs on my phone open that its just a smilie face icon now, rather than counting the tabs( so cute that it does this). Anyway, I just wanted to ask about the medication and your emotions. Did you always feel like a recluse from the first time taking Adderall?. Are they more regulated now even thou it makes you feel a bit flat? I would pick managing my anxiety any day with medication and feel a little bit zombie like. Would love to hear how things felt for you when you first started medication. Thanks for sharing
