Thank you for sharing your experience. It’s a relief to hear that I am not alone in the way that my symptoms present. I am glad the medication is helping you so much. I have talked about my possible ADHD with my mom, my brother, and my boyfriend and they all discourage me from getting medicated. They are all big believers in behavioral changes to treat mental illness, and while I understand that is important even if you are being medicated, I don’t see any good reason why I shouldn’t at least consider medication if it could help me.

I can’t know that it I won’t help me, or that I won’t like the side effects if don’t try it.
