Check out Chiropractic! They are all about natural, drug free alternatives and can really help you! ADHD can be caused by imbalances in your nerve system, and chiropractors affect your nerve system through gentle, effective adjustments to your spine. If you would like a recommendation, PM me and I would love to help you find a great doctor of chiropractic.

I have ADD and currently take Vyvanse but I’m going to re-evaluate this with my doctor. It worked out well for me for a while, but now I’m having breakouts, spells of depression, irritability/anger, rapid heart rate/heart fluttering, and I can’t take how upset it makes my stomach. HOWEVER, you just have to try different meds until you find one that fits you. There are also techniques for managing ADD/ADHD without them and I would like to someday master them well enough that I no longer rely on medication.

I’m pretty sure I have ADD as well. Meditation has really helped me. I don’t do the standard sit with yourself meditation, I do 7 minutes of chaotic breathing, 7 minutes of humming, then 7 minutes of sitting with myself and finally 7 minutes of relaxing and connecting with God/the Universe. It really works! The humming is especially important, it allows my thoughts to calm down so I can just sit with myself. I feel blissful afterwards and can just focus on whatever I want!

Only thing that has worked for me in Dexedrine.

Yes I have ADHD. I’ve had it my entire life. I do not take medictions for it (or for anything else thank goodness) and I DO NOT suffer because of it. I refuse to look at it as a disability even though the last time I was evaulated, I am still classified as severe.

Yes  I am diorganized, yes I am forgetful and yes my home and office are cluttered as hell. So what? I have an interesting life, I almost never get bored and I am well known for “thinking outside of the box”. Many of the best inventors and scientists on the planet have or had ADHD and ADD. Why do we all have to think alike?

I have learned to work WITH the ADHD as versus fight it. People who know/work/love me understand how I am and accept it. I have managed to earn an AS, BS, two MS, and Phd degrees over the years. I am a biologist and a college professor. The point I am trying to make it that it does not have to be some huge, hideous negative impact on your life.
