You don't need Drugs to keep your mental structure (Attention-Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder) under control.
In other words, do not let people use you as a guinea pig for drugs and stuff.
Try and be calm, in control and power your mind over your body.
Do things that YOU like to do, such as Portablizing.
Try and also keep calm as I said above, when it comes to doing things that you don't want to do. Such as packing dishes, etc.I do not have it, so I have no idea what it is like...
But I do know what it IS
like (if that makes sense).
Just helping with some advice is all
Take it easy
bold parts, if you dont have ADD then you have NO IDEA what its like. ive been struggling with ADD since i was in elementary school, they said i had it but nobody ever followed up on diagnosing me. i didnt get a diagnosis until i was 19 years old. so i had to go all through elementary, junior high, highschool and a year of college while trying to deal with not being able to control my ability to focus, stay on task, attention span and motivation. for some people they can manage without meds but i've been trying to do that my whole life, the only reason i got by as well as i did is because i have a fairly high IQ and was smart enough to pass without really having to try.
ADHD and ADD-I (inattentive type) are two different but related things. ADHD kids tend to be hyperactive and have problems staying on task, ADD-I is less obvious and more easily overlooked because we just look like we are lazy or dont care when its more like we just CANT pay attention, stay focused and keep up motivation to accomplish things without getting distracted.
i'm currently unmedicated but i have tried concerta and ritalin, but methylphenidate (the active ingredient in those drugs) has more negative side effects for me than benefits. ive also tried strattera, which is an SNRI (Serotonin–norepinephrine reuptake inhibitor) but serotonergic drugs mess with me in ways i dont like either. the ony drug i have tried that worked well for me was Adderall, good old fashioned mixed amphetamine salts
the only problem is i cant afford the prescription for it
and its hard to get because its a schedule II drug
TL;DR dont say people dont need drugs to treat what really IS a valid mental disability, some people might be able to deal with it drug free but not all of us are so lucky
