Hello! I am 36 years old and was recently diagnosed with ADHD and suffered for many years because of being undiagnosed. I have gone trough the testing , I am working with my therapist weekly on strategies and I started 15 mg of Adderall as well. The medication has been a huge help and I feel like a normal person. I am very close with my family and my sister which I love and respect very much sent me this article posted here in a screen shot. I have not responded to her because I don't really know what to say. Have any of you dealt with this negativity in your close circle or family?
I am not sure what to say or how to respond. I want her to understand that medication is a positive thing in my life and I am not abusing it or ever plan to do so. I do not have an addictive personality etc.
Thank you for sharing any thoughts or ideas.
