I really enjoyed reading your autobiographical post! I’m brand new to the ADD awareness thing since I have just been diagnosed this week, and only started medication two days ago. I can’t offer any advice on your question about medication, but I can tell you that your post has given me hope!
I have recently become unemployed and have been looking for a new job, and getting very discouraged. I have lots of hope that my diagnosis will help put me on a path to feeling better and more self-confidence.
