I was diagnosed with that and put on Ritalin about 8 years ago. The Ritalin made me feel great at first but it had a lot of peaks and valleys. I was switched to Dexedrine which was a much smoother "helper" but it is SPEED and I got to like it a bit too much-if you know what I mean. Now I use nothing and just try to work on acepting myself the way I am and stop trying to force a round peg in a square hole. I'm not even convinced of the diagnoses. Some times just being creative,smart,immature,and lazy can cause a lot of problems! :cool2:
