Hey Jen-

Thanks for sharing your story. The totallyadd.com WEBsite has LOTS of videos that I found helpful, both in learning about ADD, treatments, and dealing with it. Also the documentary “add and loving it” that has been shown on Global TV and now replaying on U.S. PBS stations is a good watch if you haven’t seen it.

If your doctor has diagnosed you as specifically as a “combined subtype” I would say they have some real in-depth knowledge of ADD as that is relatively recent terminology. Have you been able to follow up with them on how your treatment is progressing? They should be able to help determine if your meds are working well for you and may be able to introduce you to some support networks too.

In his lecture series Dr Jain did stress that finding the right job and right spouse are key ingredients for an ADDer to have a happy life. I wonder if there are career counselling services out there that can help us identify jobs we are interested in and would be good at?
