I suffer from OCD and mild ODD. I used to have ADD as a child but it's gotten a lot better over the years (to the point where it's not even a problem anymore). My OCD, on the other hand, is a different story..:sweatingbullets:

its 2am and im still up. i have insomnia real bad, i was diagnosed bipolar 15 years ago, and been on many meds that never really worked.
last time i was at the hospital, they tell me i might be ADD, or ADHD, and put me on meds that did not really help. i was told i dont fit the criteria for bipolar. all i know is i get panic attacks, have depression, and dont really understand alot on social circles. i tend to tank things literaly.
im so f'king tired of all this, ive been at this half my life and never have found anything that works. at this point, i just take with they give me and ive given up on life. i cant even hold down a damn job, and the damn meds make it hard to care. and the depression is still there, bad. and it dont help that im asleep 14 hours a day, and i struggle not to be exhusted the rest of the time. and i gaining weight from the meds. all thing that make my depression worse.
truth is, i'm just waiting to die. life is not going to get better with these meds holding me back, but i need them to live.
it suck really.
i just want to cry all the time but i dont, or i cant, i just dont know anymore. all i want is to life whats left of my life watching anime, cus then the world is okay.
pretty sad, huh? i really could use a stay at the happy home, but the local area has none worth the name, and i really cant afford the copays either. so im just stuck here waiting and watching my body deteriorate from the damn meds and the damn insomnia.
oh yeah, i have meds for the insomnia, but when i take them, a some times hear whispers just as im about to fall asleep. scares the crap out of me every time. i know its not real, but that changes nothing.
i just keep my eye shut cus i know if i open them ill see visual hallucinations.
man, life sucks.

If you honestly have ADD, okay. If you don't and you're making a joke at mine and other ADD and ADHD sufferers?

Don't sleep with both eyes closed, and avoid back alleys..

Also? Not funny. At all. Makes you seem insensitive and a jerk. So, if you were serious, disregard. Joking? Go away, spammer.


I also have ADD and ADHD, and his post actually rang true for me. I will always begin to type a post, but after about 20 seconds, I lose interest and just backspace it all. I was about diagnosed. The ADD is still a problem now, but I mostly have control of the ADHD, able to sit still for the most part.

It didn't help for me, all it did was make me eat less and give me headaches. But it's different for everyone and the side-effects don't happen for everyone if your Anxiety is bad you should give it a shot no harm in trying to see if it helps.

I have ADD/ADHD but I don't need meds for it and my parents tried it when I was just a boy but my parents didn't like the loss of appetite and depression so it only lasted like 2 months for me. I just grew out of it well most of it because I do actually have a Learning Dissorder which I got because of ADD/ADHD. As an "adult" with ADD/ADHD I only have two of the many symptoms, the first is a tendancy or overlooking my work for example, mix my numbers up and can mistake a number for another number so I have to do my work a bit slower same with writting essays, I think a head of my self and trick my self that I wrote a word in but I didn't so I have to re read my own work to make sure I did add the words or punctuations and grammar, like right now when I wrote this I read it before I even posted it. My second is Hyperfocus if i become so absorbed I tune everyting out and be oblivious of anything going on like when I play video games, on my computer, and reading a book I sometimes ignore my phone, the door bell, and my parents. I never had a problem with my relationships or getting work done and Ido channel my symptoms in ways to be productive. I'm glad I don't have the other symptoms and If you look them up mine aren't as bad as the others.

We'll see what My Psychiatrist says this Friday. I think I'm making a switch from Adderall to Dexedrine for My ADD, at least that's what He was talking about last Month. And I'd rather go back on Klonopin for panic instead of Xanax because Xanax is just SO addictive.. We'll see though.

Yeah. I do the same thing when signing something. Usually just end up scribbling unintelligible lines.

Xanax helps a bit, but I find I mellowed out a bit with age, so it's not as much of a problem.

I've been diagnosed with ADD, as well. Along with depression, (possible) DID (multiple personality disorder) and OCD. I'm a rather anxious and paranoid person in general. I have found multiple ways to cope with some of these, but all I can see is complex negative things about a lot of it. I can definitely relate with the severe unfocusing side of ADD; I can't make direct eye contact with people, or I'll lose all focus.

I used to be full of confidence, along with being somewhat socially anxious, but now it's getting to a point in my life where I should probably get some help with it. With EVERYTHING.

I'm not a negative person, don't get me wrong. I realize there is hope for me, and I won't find it sitting around and doing nothing. I will overcome this, or strive to at least do what I can to maintain sanity! *o*

Doctors are for chumps. They can't be trusted to diagnose a person correctly with anything related to mental health.
