Re: Adult ADHD group/accountability buddies

I got an official diagnosis of ADHD as an adult -the diagnosis helped me understand what had gone on in the past.
Ritalin helped me concentrate, but left me exhausted after it wore off - I do not take it now, just regular shots of coffee.
I attended a talk by a specialist who described the condition as a spectrum with almost everyone displaying some symptoms.
He argued for learning to use the positive aspects (enthusiasm, drive, creativity....) whilst learning to manage the down-sides (lack of concentration, boredom, chaotic time management etc etc) and including your family, trusted friends etc in the loop. ADHD should not be used as an excuse.
