I wish I had taken care of it years earlier. I’m not on stimulants right now, but I’ve used them and they are like magic. The thing is, you have a lifetime of ingrained bad habits and drugs aren’t going to fix that. You somehow have to figure out systems to compensate. But the drugs give you the mental space to let the systems work. If videos work for you, the YouTube channel How To ADHD is a good place for someone to start. Good luck brother. Kewl. Thanks. That is what I'm hoping for with meds. I've done a lot of the stuff like the goal setting, scheduling, organization before and it never stuck. The other big thing I'd need help with are lectures, meetings, and discussions, which is when my mind wanders most and depends on focus most. I've already found How to ADHD. They also have a forum and I posted an intro over there: https://forums.howtoadhd.com/t/phd-dropout/7864/12 1 Quote ===================================================================================================== --Stronkey Kong-- Link to comment
