How do I cope with ADD?
I have ADD, and my doctor won't give me the adderol that has helped me so much in the past.
I have a hard time keeping up in a conversation with another person, which is causing me to have social anxiety.
I lose interest in everything because of the amount of work it takes to pay attention. This is causing me to become slightly depressed.
I'm very forgetful. I immediately forget things that I've just heard. I forget to do things all the time.
I have a hard time watching television without missing parts of a program because I zone out. Luckily, I have direct T.V., so I can rewind parts of a show that I missed due to zoning out; but I would like to know of techniques that would help me pay better attention instead of rewinding all the time.
ADD is causing me too many problems that I don't know how to handle, and my doctor doesn't know of any techniques that can help me other than making lists of things to do. I need some advice.
