I don’t know whether it is only on that thread…
Logged in with Microsoft Edge this time, I’m going to try posting while logged in with Edge.
Edit: No, doesn’t work with Edge either.
Edit 2: Neither does it work in this thread.
Thanks for your help!
I still can only post one sentence, nothing longer than that. Have to edit for every sentence I add…
Ok… here I am, trying again…
It is sooo frustrating, I still can’t post anything that’s longer than one sentence.
I came back from Overseas (Europe, no Italy) 3 weeks ago.
I too hate phone calls, always have.
Have to edit for every sentence I add… this is stupid, really.
Going on for days now…
Emptied cache – still not working. Sigh.
I’ve tried a couple of times, same problem.
Deleted my cookies, same.
Still can’t post.
Getting the following:
ERROR: Your reply cannot be created at this time.
I wrote a longer one that didn’t post… trying to find out why.
Strange, I can’t post here… getting an error message.
I am German but I live in Australia, QLD.
I have been diagnosed back in Germany a while ago, unfortunately my meds (brand) aren’t available here, therefore I have been going without meds for the last 9 years.
I tried to reply at that other thread but for some reason it wouldn’t let me… sigh.
They are definitely not addictive, otherwise people would not forget to take them ;-).
I think it depends how severe your ADHD is. Everyone is different. Every ADHD is different.
I dropped them because my whole life changed. I had gone through a divorce, new partner, left my home country to come and live in Australia. And then I found out it is so much more difficult here to get meds, it is bl$&$%$y expensive and my brand wasn’t available here. So I just dropped them and since we were house hunting at that time – I think that kept me busy and I didn’t have the time to think about it.
Do I miss the person I was under meds? Definitely. I simply felt normal, could concentrate and got shit done.
That’s why I am seriously thinking of getting treatment again. I am just very nervous whether I would have to go through the whole diagnosis process again and I don’t really want to try a different medication since the one I had was working so well.
I would say… you can get addicted to feeling normal, if you know what I mean? Not to feel like an alien anymore.
Oh yes, I know what you’re talking about.
Arguments definitely weren’t blowing so much out of proportion when I was on meds…
And the reaction of my partner doesn’t really help either.
But that’s another story…
we went to Tassie last year and I loved it! Want to go again…
I think it’s called high functioning ADHD. My doctor back in Germany was impressed how good I was coping, but it was still affecting me like hell.
You are probably right, it has to do with that emotional connection.
Oh and the rejection sensitivity… that is so annoying. Sometimes things pop into my head from looong ago and then I am still pondering whether I said the right thing or I realise I said something I shouldn’t have and so on.
And honestly, I did not have that when I was on meds. It did not bother me at all…
when you hit the reply button of a post, it just takes you down to the very bottom of the thread but the reply will show underneath the post you replied to. It’s a bit weird.
I find the threads here very confusing somehow.
Yes, I am better with written stuff as well. 😉
