  • My husband used to tell me that I need to get tested for ADD. I’d forget simple things, lose things all the time, and make him repeat everything he just said because I was off in la-la land. After talking to my doctor and being tested, we found out that I do, indeed, have ADD. I was also later diagnosed by a psychiatrist, as well. Anyway, I got on Adderall, and life got not only better, but it got NORMAL! I LOVED being able to give him 100% of my attention when he was speaking to me. I loved setting my mind to a task and actually completing it. I loved knowing right where my keys/purse/phone was at all times. I later lost my job and was unable to afford the doctor’s appointments and medication. I went back to being forgetful and inattentive. He’d get mad at me and I’d tell him, “I’m sorry. But you know if I was on my medicine, it wouldn’t be this way.” He’d get even madder! He said I’m just using the medicine as an excuse. He said that I’m always like “medicine this” and “medicine that”. He’s the one who convinced me to go get diagnosed and get help managing my ADD, but suddenly, ADD is just a crutch to him! I’m so freaking frustrated. I’m not making up excuses to him. I mean, like I said, I was diagnosed by both a medical doctor AND a psychiatrist, separately. And he saw a tremendous improvement in me when I was on my meds. It’s just frustrating because I, like others, feel so ALONE in dealing with this disorder. Thankfully, I recently got another job and can get back on insurance, and therefore, my meds. It’s been almost two years since I’ve been on them. I can’t wait to feel normal again.
