I've been just recently diagnosed with type 5 Limbic ADHD (and a lot of other types too lol) and I'm just starting the experimenting of what medications will work best for me and what won't. I also suffer from muscles back and neck pain, on top of really awful anxiety.
I've just started taking 10mg Adderall XR and the effects have already faded. So sad cause they felt awesome when they first started working.
This waiting for things to move along to get help is really hard because I've gotten so much worse in the last 7 months. Before I was even diagnosed or anyone took me seriously I was unable to leave my bedroom. My terrible anxiety and horribly negative thinking went from bad to unbearable in almost 7 months. Now that I've gotten the diagnoses and can get the help I so desperately need, it's all turned into a waiting game and the waiting is really hard.
I heard of this place from reading Healing ADD by Dr. Amen and I thought I'd give it a try talking to others like myself. Truthfully it's been awesome knowing they're others out there that has or is going through what I am. For all my life I thought I was by myself in how I thought, acted and felt. I came here hoping to talk to others about their experiences and ask questions about treatment, ideas, anything that may help.
Right now I'm scared, nervous, very anxious because I just want to figure out the best meds I need to get my life together. It's been so long I just hate the idea of waiting any longer to get right.
I just wanted to say it's nice to meet you all and it's good to know I'm not alone
