When my 40’s hit…symtoms I would be able to control were harder.
I noticed that I could not tolorate 3 students around me talking at the same time. I was mentally exausted when I got home.

My son has ADHD. So, after reflecting…I noticed that I had alot of ADD traits appearing. Figured out that I must have compensated all those years, but now, couldn’t do it as well.

My solution was medication. I Started with Concerta. It immediatly helped with the filtering out voices (sooooo great!), but I was too agressive and anxious on it.
I’m now on Vyvanse. It’s great and filtering out the sounds I don’t want to focus on. When I don’t take it on the weekends, I can filter noises and voices for a certain amount of time…
