sarahl240, This sounds familiar to me, but for me I have a more seasonal variation. Every fall, my dosage seems woefully inadequate, every summer, there are days when I forget my dosage, and life proceeds fantastically. By mid-winter I struggle to get through the days, but after the solstice, I slowly start to adjust to life again.

I don’t read a lot about the combination of ADHD with SAD (Seasonal Adjustment Disorder), but I got that diagnosis decades before the ADHD one. ADHD is one factor in my makeup, and so my challenge is always to explore what else is going on as well. I think of AFHD as a kind of baseline (lol)
