    Hi,

    Im not sure i should be the one answering to you, cause you seem to be already in a better place than i currently am, but your message really spoke to me.

    The part about no one understanding, you are uber-right. It’s the same for me, i can try to explain it as clearly as i can i always get the “ok, you’re just a dumbass” look. May it be family or the short timed friends i had.

    I don’t post here very often but this forum will help you a lot, as you will finally find people who will understand your struggles. As cliche and self righteous as it may sound, I do understand.

    About shutting yourself into an introvert, when you’re really the opposite. I think everyone here does understand, even if we’re all different “ADHDs” in the end.

    I also feel the same about no one i know having my back. So maybe, in the end, you are the one to have your own. I’m kind of cutting everyone away right now, not in a hateful and bitter way, but just…it feels like it’s the right thing to do to preserve my sanity. That really bugs me when i hear stuff like “you can’t do this alone”, cause, what if you have to?

     

    Anyway, he next part, you will maybe not like, but about all those questions you’re asking yourself, I recently purchased this CBT book

    http://totallyaddshop.com/products/the-adult-adhd-tool-kit#.VXL1qEYT-Uk

    It feels to me like, if you take those 6 months for yourself, that is a must-read, as it really explains a lot about how we are who we are.

    They kind of dissected our procrastination process, and a lot of other stuff too. Since you seem very set on changing stuff, I think  you will find the answers to a lot of questions you have. It is not an easy read though^^

    I’m hoping this was at least encouraging if not helpful, but i wish you the best.

     

    Force et Honneur !

    It seems that the way you see it depends on wether you have control over it or it controls you.

    It demands a lot of work to get to the right mindset.
    It still sucks most of the time to me 🙂
    for now i guess

    Thanks for the reply

    Its just as you said, nothing can really keep me down for good either and i have learned stuff in therapy that keeps me from going under again too fast…

    Youre right when you say that the important thing is to reach out which i don’t usually do because i think everyone here has their own load of bs to cope with

    But just putting my frustration into words helped me a lot and im glad that i did ,just that made me feel better And so did your words

    But the forgiving part is hard lol

    Guess i still have some work to do…

    Thanks for replying

    It helps to know that someone get it 🙂

    Good luck to you too

    I know what you mean, sometimes it feels the ground is cracking under your feet and the next day everything is so ‘bright and shiny’ but reality always catches up.

    Im the same with projects, did I advance in it or not, it’s VERY difficult for me to get back to it the next day and i end up doing something else… Or nothing

    What Wgreen just said.

    It seems to me that neurotypicals seem to have the ability

    to take waht they feel and transform it into something else.

    I don’t know  if it’s adhd, but i for one can’t .

    I just take this personnal hell in ,over and over, and it’s slowly consuming my time here.

    It feels time, as life, is completely out of my grasp no matter how hard i try.

    Not to mention the social afflictions.

    I am of the kind who can’t finish a sentence without going mindblank and it makes me want to disappear everytime.

    But yeah totally a gift. *Sarcasm self test completed*

    In the end it just feels like you’re fucked , i don’t know how you guys manage to cope with it.

    Seriously, i’m sorry if i sound aggressive or out of place (well that would be a surprise) but i guess i wish i could see it as such

    @ Takingbacktyler

    sorry i hadn’t seen your post…

     

    No on the contrary it does not piss me off, it’s good too hear that it’s not hopeless.

    But it’s true it might be time to re evaluate , as you said, what i feel like doing with my life.

    Thanks for listening

    Thanks for your answer and welcome !

    It’s nice

     

    For the concerta, it’s the real thing, 54 mg/pill and i take 2 on the morning but i really don’t see much difference…

    That was the dose i was given from the start, but i heard somewhere that the effects can actually be cancelled if the dose is too high…but even at just 54 mg there seem to be no effect.

     

    The point is i live in france and it seems doctors are really outdated when it comes to ADD :

    the neurologist who prescribed me the meds only knows of these two drugs so i don’t really know where to look next…

     

    And btw thanks for the “Bill’s ADDventures” links, yes i really needed that^^
