Angry Going crazy with ADD

Hi I have just been given the diagnosis of ADD.
the problem is that I am starting to doubt my own sanity because of things I notice that I do.
Usual ADD things temper forgetful etc.
But I have just had a conversation and it was said I said something I cannot remember saying...I remember it completely differently, I know this sounds really silly, but I am sure I did not say it and if I believe the other person then It makes me feel as if I am going insane.
Not been able to remember things I have said?...I do not believe it.
But have my doubts

I feel silly posting this but it is in the hope that someone has also either done this or being through it.
I am starting to get a headache because it feels as if they are lying but I am not sure.

Does this make any sense???

My kids say that to me all the time...although I tend to think they are trying to get their way!
Sometimes I wish my husband didn't have such a good memory...ugh
But..it's true..sometimes we just remember things we said differently than how other people heard them. I often feel that I am misunderstood! But of course, I know what I meant! Lol!

I think because we are thinking so fast, we process things differently?
How long have you been on meds?

I have now been taking them for around 6 weeks.
At the self help group I go to, one of them stated "I like coming here because everyone speaks fast."
Its all new to Me and still learning..

sorry this has taken so long ...yes its called mediknet(methylphenidate hydrochloride)
which at times is a wonder drug for me, I never thought I would ever get my temper under controll and the one thousand and one or more thoughts.
If you know what I mean.
