    Hey Joshua
    I am newly diagnosed too and now I am having the lightbulb moments around how it has impacted my life right across the board. I find reading and focus really tricky so couldn’t get through the books but the best thing I have found is looking if your city has a local ADHD support group. I am so lucky to have found one in my city and meet up with them every two weeks in a cafe for coffee. Its like meeting myself over and over and god does it feel good to see these incredible people who live with something I do.

    All the best neuro-diverse buddy

    Hi this sounds really tricky and definitely a problem that I worry about encountering.I have just been diagnosed with ADHD at 29 years old and have lived my life with swirling on a chair, jumping from one task to another and having so many tabs on my phone open that its just a smilie face icon now, rather than counting the tabs( so cute that it does this). Anyway, I just wanted to ask about the medication and your emotions. Did you always feel like a recluse from the first time taking Adderall?. Are they more regulated now even thou it makes you feel a bit flat? I would pick managing my anxiety any day with medication and feel a little bit zombie like. Would love to hear how things felt for you when you first started medication. Thanks for sharing
