And about the girlfriend: there’s a school of thought that says different people express and feel loved in different ways (it’s called the five love languages, if you want to look it up). So not everyone needs romantic gestures. But we ADHD people need partners who can be clear and direct about what they need from us. We usually can’t focus on subtle hints long enough to puzzle them out.April 19, 2019 at 3:05 pm in reply to: Question after 1st day on Concerta (generic) for suspected ADHD inattentive type #114454
Finding the right medication and dose is a lengthy process. I think you actually have ADHD. Typing the wrong key is an indication of impulsivity, which can be another way the “hyperactive” aspect can manifest. Keep a list of everything you notice, so you can discuss it all with your doctor next time you meet. Watch your sleep, too. Us ADHD folks tend to be lousy sleepers to begin with, and the wrong meds can make it even worse, negating any benefit from it.
I recently made a recipe I had been wanting to try for a while, but then accidentally started making the one on the next page halfway through! It didn’t help that the next recipe had several ingredients in common with the first! Unfortunately, it didn’t turn out well. Definitely start simple and work your way up. I bought a spice rack with the spices already in it, so I only have to get more when one runs out. I would research common pantry items to try and build up a stock you can pull from. Then, when you run out of something, put it on the grocery list RIGHT AWAY.
