    #2 @Jan 🐝 Barbosa FWIW...back in the sixties/early seventies --no one in my "neck o' the woods knew what ADHD was ...so I was just labeled "182 IQ gifted serial juvenile delinquent" --then later they put me on meds and I finished an award winning Ph.D. Dissertation and NIDA postdoc within a few years...than later:1) I had my job illegally taken from me and 2) commenced legal proceedings until my funds ran out ...3) there are still so scared they still keep my name in the catalog to "draw" students, paid me for two years to not come in and work.
    1) 2) and 3) (above) would not have been possible if I hadn't STOPPED my meds and LET MY FREAK ADHD FLAG FLY!!!

    #1 @Joyce 🐝 Bowen Brand Ambassador @ beBee I know a bit about MS...much of that via a nonlinear...nonverbal "thingie" with my best friend when I was working on my Master's at WCU; as she says: "never say never"...if I challenge her...her (as of last month "useless-demyelinated motor neuron innervated") triceps bring her fist --or worse...fist holding a cane or other heavy object down...hard on my head; she then tells me that ice and direct pressure are best (and to try not to fall asleep until I'm confident that I haven't a subdural hematoma) and that she has to return to her busy practice as a medical psychologist.

    My only solace is that the variant she was DX'd with is chronic, progressive, nonremitting...and that she doesn't believe stuff that people tell her by default. She also doesn't pay people who tell her stuff (in a professional capacity) that she doesn't like

    My Inattentive ADD is quite bothering... Its something I can live with... but nevertheless ive lost brain power, before I could recite more than 150 quotes... not let alone 10... plus my lack of focus has kept me form reading.... Its became worst about when I hit 38... Now im pushing my brain to read and write... ADD Pills give some concentration at the expense of my heart wanting to burst out of my chest !!!

    As someone who takes a few pills each day to maintain cognition, I welcome this to a certain extent. Of course, my disease is atrophying my brain, so I have dead spots that will never recover.
