    Today I ventured out into the world for the first time since I came to grips with my ADHD….

    I still have sooo much to learn about ADHD but have spent the last 3 days and nights on this site and others, reading articles and

    have a good start on the crazy stupid lazy book…

    The best way I can describe today is ……………….. I felt as if I were walking around completely naked and everybody else in the world

    was blind…..

    Ohhhhh so frightening yet my brain was on fire with excitement and bewilderment.

    Hi, just wanted to say hi to all. My first site and forum I found, hope you don’t mind. Found out that I have ADD about a year ago, let me tell you I was so happy to find out, I finally understood I was not that crazy just didn’t know why I was the way I was. Just hang in there and learn as much as you can, so you know what to ask and not to ask a doctor. Thanks for letting me in.

    One piece of advice I can offer, for what it’s worth, is to educate yourself but do not go overboard or let the ADD diagnosis consume you.

    I didn’t realize it at the time, but it was doing that to me. It was also like I had put an “ADHD” label on my forehead and mentally was using it as an excuse for everything I had done wrong, and was still doing “wrong”, rather than focussing on my positive attributes and using knowledge to deal with the condition.

    I also found I began “analyzing” everyone else I met or dealt with for whether they had ADD. Perhaps I was trying to make myself “fit in” more, but it became a bit of an obsession and was very counter-productive.

    To all 3 of you, best wishes for a safe journey to becoming the person you always wanted to be :-)
