    It’s in reaction to how others treat us. Overly sensitive. Easily set off. Normal kid someone calls him dumb they are like eh whatever. Adhd kid gets called dumb he drop kicks the person then realizes after holy crap I just drop kicked that kick. Impulse control. I used to drop kick people lol. It’s normal. Idk what to do about it tho. He doesn’t mean it.

    I have adhd when I was younger I used to attack people a lot. Act up then feel bad about it causing more stress and anxiety. I’m not a doctor but that can Def be an adhd thing. Regulating emotions, things can be overwhelming, jump to quick irrational decision making. Adderall can cause mood swings for sure tho. Could be a combo.

    It’s not blank it’s just uninterested and more interested in thinking it’s blank. Lol (well everyone’s different but in my case) brainstorm while playing with a tennis ball. Sometimes if I multitask it can help my train of thought bc my minds not as bored. 🙂

    Adderall for a while was very helpful until I sort of out in perspective I’m believing in things that clearly aren’t real and that’s psychosis. Now I’m not functional and a mess.

    I’ve tried every kind. It hasn’t been a fun ride. I didn’t get as bad of experiences as when I was younger. Although it doesn’t really help me. Vyvance was very weak didn’t really do anything besides make my heart race and react a little faster but it really makes me not feel good. Adderall worked but I get delusional from it. Like I thought people were following me on my way home and start believing conspiracies and stuff. A few years ago. I didn’t actually even tell my doctor. I still kept it together but I started texting my brother about aliens following me. Lol not joking. This was 2 years ago. Now I’m just really depressed have anxiety and have trouble sleeping and concentrating. I used to be active and stuff now I’m not active have no energy and can’t sleep. So I’m that rare percent. I’m not sure if I should take it anyways or what.

    The voices persisted for a good amount of time thereafter and again it was god and the devil arguing and I would either consider myself as god or the devil. When the devil was my voice it was bad. I stabbed my older brother in the eyeball with a terriaki stick one morning in some sort of trans. What had felt like I had zero control of what my body was doing and I was watching in third person. I have zero issues now I’m not skitzo my thinking is fine. This was a real thing I think the world should know it. The voice thing ended on a specific day. Been totally fine ever since. I began running cross country and ended up as one of the best middle school runners. I was mainly just trying to rid my mind of whatever took play.

    Yea don’t do that. I can relate. It’s all in your head. You just think it helps. i had the exact same vibe. Also I had bad anxiety from adderall. With the alc it will become a thing if it already isn’t a thing. Trust me that’s bad news bears real quickly. It actually is making shit worse. The anxiety actually might be related to the alc. In my case it ended up being that way. The alc helps cope with stimulant come down. No bueno trust meh.

    I feel ya man. Just know your not alone. I’m a loner. I get used and taken advantage of pretty easily. It’s not easy to be quick and witty in convos when you have no clue what the hell anyone’s talking about. My social skills are basically me nodding my head and retaining small bits and pieces of what people are saying and pretending like I know what’s going on.

    100 percent. It gets worse for me if I’m stressed, don’t excercise. Most importantly diet and alcohol. I find that alcohol is terrible for adhd. Also food is very important. When I consist a non gmo Whole Foods type diet my symptoms significantly improve.

    Adhd drugs add to anxiety. Sometimes less is more I perform best with less. I have adhd and anxiety. I’m not a fan of anxiety drugs. My suggestion is less Ritalin should def help.

    Adhd is a gift and a curse. You can be amazing at things but you can’t finish anything. Your really good at things randomly. You notice everything. You have a different point of view than most. You see things for what they are. I find people with adhd to be much more down to watch. Etc.

    Adderall is a strong drug. Adderall unlike other kinds is more up and downy. Yes it can make you act emotional. Yes it can make you act all types oF ways. There are other kinds that don’t make your emotions as up and down. Bivance is much less mood disturbing. Adderall for me was tough it made my mood jump around a lot although I found it made me productive and was helpful.

    I also worry about my health. I have a new job now and scrape by with doing my duties and being on time and managing my stuff. It’s extremely difficult and barely keep my head above water.

    There were multiple factors at play very stress related also. Not a single day off work in years no lunch breaks.etc It was an admin job for a relative. Thank you for the feedback. I am reluctant to try diff kinds bc of bad experiences however your prob right. I don’t have the right adhd doctor either. If I express a concern they cut me off and I end up losing my job bc it screws me all up.
