It's really weird for me to get on here and not be able to use my actual name, also now seeing other people's usernames, somewhatoutdoorsman seems somewhat non-characterizing. So I suppose I'll do it here. Single male, 37, (god I hope I'm not violating any of the rules). Found out last August that I have Adult ADHD and probably had it as a kid as well. It presented before as daydreaming/inattentiveness; still does from time to time. Just switched to Vyvanse and it seems to be helping, though I still have anxiety. My ADHD presents now as inability to sit still for long periods of time. To the point that office work is almost strictly off the table, at least in the short term. So I work in a maintenance position and find that all that movement helps a lot. I have a college degree, though in something akin to liberal arts, which is frustrating. I didn't know I had ADHD in college, and things actually started off strong due to a bit of remission of my issues (specifically anxiety/depression (apparently it's mostly adhd and ocd)), and I got great grades, went from a finance major to a premed major. 3.92 GPA for my AA. University was a bit overwhelming. 400 people classes, almost no access to the professors, who didn't really want to be teaching anyway, but had to in order to continue their research. Community college, professors were actually there to teach, and I learned voraciously. I also didn't have any difficulty studying. I also had a small TBI right before my first semester at university, which seems to have exacerbated my ADHD. Worked in office settings for the first few years after college, rather successfully, except for my impulsive overspending because I was so damned miserable, then moved out west and got a job working in the outdoor industry, which was great, but I got fired 6 months in. Worked in the ski industry for a couple years, but the money wasn't very good, ended up going financially bankrupt (as in, I didn't claim bankruptcy, but all of my money was taken by the state due to not paying my credit card bills). Panic, overwhelming anxiety, depression, spent an entire 4th quarter (I had to travel for work almost constantly) freaking out about flying on planes when I had spent the previous two years doing the same thing, all of a sudden it gave me panic attacks and I realized I had to drink a beer or two before getting on any flight (works like a charm, as long as you don't have any addiction issues, which gratefully I've never struggled with). Lived for a year with my parents again trying to get acclimated. Adderall for the first year, which caused outbursts of anger and fury, but I could focus and wasn't freaking out all the time. I find that Vyvanse is more gentle, but this was the first script for it, so my psych and I will have to keep working at it because I still have some anxiety from it. Feel alone because I moved out west again (from the east coast) to work in the outdoor industry again. Living on my own is alright. Not much worse than before, in fact about the same. Have had a couple of great girlfriends over the last 4 years, one I had a lack of impulse control, the other, I changed a depression med, freaked out, and that's how I landed back east for a year. I've read a lot of your posts, and am grateful others will understand, but also wonder if this is going to get worse as I age. Any answers on that? Thank you for any help/advice you can give a newbie to this. Looking forward to making connections with all of you, even if we can't share names. Something is better than nothing.
