Writer's Block: Life With ADHD

This month is Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder Month. Talk about your experiences with ADHD, or those of someone close to you.

well i am convinced my exboyfriend has ADHD but he was never diagnosed(but that's another story).
My dad's best friend adopted her foster kids all with adhd, which can be interesting at times lol the kids are great but they can get into quite a bit of trouble esp if they aren't taking their meds.Which can sometimes be a fight to get them to take their meds. But i did learn that with ADHD kids if they haven't taken their meds or meds have worn off caffeine works differently on them instead of making them more hyper it kinda calms them down.
If their meds have worn off or they haven't taken them she might tell them to drink a Mountain Dew. I was shocked when i found this out, but i have to say it does work.

I know I have it... but I think I've decided, for now, to find other avenues to control it rather than taking medicine.

well being an adult it's your choice. my aunt (my dad's best friend) has said they tried the kids without it and in class they have problems listening and behaving in class. they also have many many other issues which is the reason they were taken away from their parents in the first place.
