Why am I writing about Adult ADD?

If like me you are (or know someone who is) constantly exhausted, irritable, memory deficient and confused by what feels like a frozen brain, welcome
There are many of us who don't know that this mental shortsightedness is in fact a medical condition. Do you have methods in place to try and manage your situation? 
Myself, I made certain that my psychologist understood that I had done all the tests and surveys thank you, and please give me medicine NOW! So now I take 18g of Concerta daily and yes, it has helped me a lot. Often I feel that it is not enough. I will consider increasing the dosage when I remember to :-)
There is of course much more that needs doing apart from the controversial route of medication. You need to have systems in place to manage your time, schedules, relationships, future and the myriad other things humans have to do. Especially when we are also parents, spouses and earners. Without these systems you will always feel out of control and hopeless about your life, goals and achievements.
With this blog, I hope to find the best resources, tips and ideas, as I wade my way through this ADD life of mine. Perhaps it will help you too. We have creative interesting minds and are generally out the box thinkers. So never ever put yourself down and believe that you are not AMAZING.
