    Thanks for the thoughts. My chiro dr of all people was surmising if ‘surges’ of meds might be of better effectiveness for me. Would love to know if this has been tried out by anyone.

    Just ordered Driven to Distraction….be nice to have something to take with me instead of relying totally on internet. I also have printed out my new mantra (SLOW DOWN….LIFE IS NOT A RACE) I’m sure a paraphrased that from somewhere….lol

    Newly diagnosed 54 year old….of course told that meds were all that were needed. Trying to learn new methods. One thing I did do is print out my newly created mantra(SLOW DOWN…..LIFE IS NOT A RACE) Trying to learn to concentrate between not and hyperfocusing….good luck to us all!!!

    I have many, but my main 2 are model railroading and playing music. I am 55 and recently diagnosed with ADHD-inattentive, but have been diagnosed OCD for 25+ years.. and when I say hobbies, I mean basically obsessions. Problem has been that I will go madly at one for 4-6 months, then lose interest and switch to the other, or stop for a while….maddening. I am also a perfectionist and very serious about both. I am a published author in a model railroad magazine, built an interior in a 3 inch long caboose(yeah…that kind of ‘crazy’) and consider myself an uber-geek in the hobby. I have played bass and sing lead vocals(on some not all songs) for various local working bands since the early 90s and consider myself very good at it, but like all of us….never enough. I have dozens(possibly 100) unfinished projects downstairs, and have a habit of switching in and out of bands(not always by choice…lol)…have been in about 15 since I started playing in working bands.
