Informative

Great and up to date information. Needs more content on adult ADHD and how the difficulties with executive functions play out in life, particularly in relationships and marriage. The transition from the falling in love stage to real love is hard for those with ADHD because the second stage of love involves using the executive functions to make decisions, problem solve, impulse control to remain faithful and have the interest, tolerance and patience to sustain a life long marriage. Can this be helped and how?

I really needed this

I don’t know how I got signed up for e- mails from you as not being computer literate I could have clicked on something that sent somehow me this place.
I am 67 years old and didn’t know I had ADD until I was 50! The only reason then was,I was teaching
7th-12th grade English classes at a Christian school, and one of my 7th grade students mother( who also taught at this school), gave me a paperback book about what her son suffered with and the reason he may be falling asleep due to his ADD medicine. I admit I was a very strict teacher as I knew some of my students had were slow learners and needed to be able to concentrate in order to understand anything I was teaching them. I kept the classroom quiet( unlike other teachers there) and classes were very structured.
So when I came to the last page of the ADD book it asked the question: do you know anyone else who has most of the below symptoms.
To my SHOCK I checked every single box! I always knew there was something different going on in my mind (like riding a carousel around and around unable to ever get off).
So I self diagnosed myself in 1998 with this syndrome I had NEVER heard of. And living in a little coal mining town their doctors had never even heard of Adult ADD. I worked in child protective services after teaching in WV so other than reading that book I had quite a few children clients who saw a psychiatrist or psychologist for ADHD. Life happenings caused me to have to change jobs, and move to two different states ( one after the other). Still in my present state I live in, wasn’t until 20010 that I was able to connect with a doctor who worked with ADD adults. I just had too much on my plate between the realization of my ADD and the actual ability to see that specific doctor. So from 1998-20010 I survived in my chaotic world somehow. I have been taking Focalin XR 30 mg. But will be changing to Mydayis as soon as I can get an appointment( during the coronavirus situation now).
I enjoyed your podcast it said April 8 but the email said it would be a live podcast on April 9, at 1:00 EDT.
Finally your app, podcasts are giving me a sense of community and understanding I never had before.
