  1. My Son has ADHD. This info is really insightful, thanks for sharing it. He struggles, and like me (although I don’t have ADHD, rather Bipolar and Borderline), it’s an ‘invisible’ illness, and people think that we are ‘full of shit’….yeah right!

  2. I don’t have ADHD, I use to take the pills for fun when I was in high school. My good friend has ADHD, so she would give me her pills once in awhile. but I stopped because I was too focused, tired, bouncy legs, dilated eyes. Constantly erasing my work, because it didn’t look neat or perfect. It was a weird high, it wasn’t even a high. But I do have inattention without hyperactivity. I don’t know if it has to do with my AS. But I don’t like labels, it’s to much to try to understand. I just see it as nobody is normal. And we just have to find a way to be patient with all people. πŸ™‚

  3. Thank you for posting this. I am just now, at 34, learning to deal with my ADHD. I am not doing very well, and have much to learn. I started my blog yesterday – out of desperation.
    I will have to give yours a full run down in order to learn more about how to handle these ongoing anxiety attacks.

    1. Im an occupational therapist with five years professional experience with developmental disorders and also a mother who raised an autistic child. I know this condition from both perspectives.

      Anxiety is huge to both disorders and sensory equipment is vital, especially when you don’t want to use pharmaceutical remedies.
      As soon as I can find the mini booklet I created about sensory processing for kids with sensory processing disorder which is often misdiagnosed as ADHD. I’ll add it to my site, it’ll help you understand the sensory side of ADHD.

      Your more than welcome to have a look.
      I’ll be adding more to the sight very soon.
