​@@intraterrestrial5035yeah, I noticed that, too. While I definitely did better as a kid in the structure of grade school than I did as an adult in college and in the workplace, he made SO MANY "all or nothing" statements that I don't identify with. And where I struggled in college with the delayed feedback loop (homeworks returned after weeks or months, grade is mostly mid term and final), I know so many ADHDers with a graduate degree or two. It's like he put a modern (for 2012) understanding of ADHD on a 90s caricature of "who has ADHD". But I do appreciate he views it as an executive function problem and not a lack of attention. And I can appreciate that his audience isn't us with ADHD but clinicians who need a kick in the pants, so hyperbole for effect may have its place here. Executive Dysfunction instead of lack of attention was a pretty new understanding in 2012. If you want your blood to boil, read WebMD's description of ADHD. It's like a poor interpretation of the 1990s understanding. And there's still clinicians stuck with that 1990s view.

My ADHD is so bad that I resort to watching videos like this just for the small serotonin boost I receive from pretending to take steps towards managing my ADHD. Medication doesn’t work, self help guides don’t work, discipline doesn’t work, so sometimes I watch videos like this to essentially role-play as someone who’s on their way to improvement. Once that wears off it’s right back to sitting on the porch staring into space because NOTHING, not even weed or videos games is enough to hold my attention. Wouldn’t wish this on anyone. It’s completely ruined my life and destroyed any chance of being a normal, functioning human being. Everyone in my family is very successful. My younger sister makes upwards of 6 figures in the medical field, and at the age of 30 I’m still working an entry level job stocking shelves because I can’t work a job that requires even a minuscule amount of thinking. I don’t have to use my head at all with my current job, which allows my mind to rapidly switch focus and daydream while my body is in autopilot. If I was an engineer like I dreamt of as a kid I wouldn’t make it. Because even though I’m passionate about it, if my ADHD decides that it doesn’t care about engineering today, there’s nothing I can do. It’s like watching some lazy slob control your body while you watch from a 3rd person perspective.

Damn that was some serious testimony. I wish you to overcome this one way ir another. If your attempts have failed, try new ones like breathing techniques, cold exposure, DMT or hallucigenic experience. As long as you haven't done everything seriously, I suggest you keep going on with the will necessary during the attempts. I know how it feels to fail to find a solution when it's about your health, but when ruminating about not being able to overcome it, tell yourself that it gives you something to go on while giving up won't bring any solution. Wish you the best.

@@Random_User_042the medication isn’t going to be a full day solution, realistically. For me it’s a good boost to get myself up, on track, and in the right direction for the day. I pack as much as I can in the first half of the day, because I know it will start to decline during the second half until I crash after dinner. If I ate better and exercised I’m sure that would help in keeping my tank full for longer. There’s a European Dr I watch who also suggests *not* drinking caffeine until midday, or at least late morning, because it’s more effective as the day goes on.

L-Methionine and Trimethilglycine! Due to a mutation, we with ADHD have a chronic deficiency of those amino acids. Being deficient in Methionine causes, that your brain can't degrade catecholines, which are the root neurochemical cause for the negative aspects of ADHD!

I usually ask them what they do when they have to do the dishes. If their answer is "I do the dishes" I tell them about how I have to mow the grass before I get to the clean dishes. About how I went to do dishes then saw that the dish rag and drying towel was dirty, then I saw that the wash I ran the day before is still in there and smells kinda funny, so I have to re run it. I go to put down the rag and towel in a basket but realize I have no empty baskets because I have a clean cloths in them. So I put them on the sink side and go to fold the laundry in a basket to have a dirty clothes basket. When I go to fold the cloths I see that I have my wives garden stuff on the bed that I just got her. I go to take it out to the shed and realize on my way out that the grass is a bit long. That leads me to start mowing. Then i get to work backwards from there.

I’ve always been talented musically and creatively and I’ve had high ambitions for myself based off of those talents but now my largest ambition is to continue to be alive and to get by.

It's definitely more "dirty" than pharmaceuticals but coffee with a little CBD may temperately help with motivation. Coffee gives you the drive the CBD takes off the anxious edge while helping you remain calm yet focused. Although if tried most of the meds then this probably won't do much. Find a job that lets you be you. Structured jobs like sitting at a desk all day won't let you be you. However many blue collar jobs will let you have a bit more freedom as long as you end the day getting done what was asked.

I figured out how to set up my environment for success as an adhd person: work in a dental office. Constant environment clues as to what I'm supposed to be doing. No possibility that I don't care because people are always in pain or in need of treatment to prevent pain so consequences are immediate. Working all day feels just like playing video games but after it ends, the good feelings persist. Applied to go back to college to be a dentist only a week after I started as a dental assistant because I know how rare it is to find a work environment that is conducive with adhd.

@supremeoverlord0

I understand what you mean, I was also fighting back tears while watching. Sometimes I've wondered... if someone else was forced into my brain, would they be overwhelmed or think it's normal, and I'm just the person coping badly? It's crazy how I can see the evidence of *something* being up with me, but I'm so quick to dismiss it. The constant forgetting, trailing off mid-sentence, or the inverse- rambling to the point of tuning out everything else. Fixating on certain things to the point I can barely think of anything else. The random mental associations I make that are always go, go, go- it's like my brain never turns off, even when I'm not really doing anything. Constant buzzing background noise. Struggles with driving, and similarly, I get decision paralysis when I'm presented with "how to do" something, because I just assume I'm probably going to overlook *something* and make some crucial error. I'm always worried about overlooking something. I actually was a good student, but it's because I'd regularly stay up suuuper late to do homework that took me hours, and I'd metaphorically (sometimes literally) bang a textbook against my head until I "got" it, because I couldn't allow myself to slip. Felt like all I had was being the "smart kid," and that people would see I'm a scattered fraud if I lost that. Took/takes so much energy to be on top of my game, and I can't help but ask myself if doing the bare minimum is supposed to feel this exhausting. I can hardly invest in myself, hobbies/social outings, because of focusing on basic tasks. Sorry to dump all of that, but I'm just tired. I'm planning on getting a diagnosis, too. Never done therapy before, and I think I'm long overdue. Best of wishes. I'd be curious about your own experiences, if you're willing to share any. Life's tough, man.

@supremeoverlord0  don't apologize for the info dump/rant. I'm more than happy to read it. I definitely feel we had a similar experience but I wasn't the kid who forced myself to overachieve academically, (I did fine enough, but my teachers hated that I would just straight up not do the homework than ace the tests) but rather I was the kid who played every sport I could and was usually the team captain or one of the higher achievers. That's where I focused all of my brain power. I am fairly positive that's why I've gone so long without being diagnosed. I had an outlet for all the extra energy, and I knew where to focus it, so I seemed fine, but then I graduated High School. All the structure of a team setting, all the outlets for my excessive energy, all gone. I couldn't bring myself to sign up for recreational sports because I felt like people wouldn't want me even though I knew I was at the very least decent at whatever sport I played. My insecurity got really bad for a long time because my brain couldn't take the shock of going from constantly playing sports to literally not playing any sports for a solid 2 years. I did go to therapy a few times and I learned a lot about motivating myself but I'd get going for runs for a week or 2 then I'd lose the motivation again because there wasn't the team setting that is really what made sports fun. I got really into video games and specifically competitive ones because that's what I knew I enjoyed, but it's never been quite the same. I still struggle a lot without that team setting to help me motivate myself and it spilled over a lot into my daily life too. I have days where I will straight up not want to do anything, then others where I have to get everything done in the span of a few hours or I'll put it off till my next motivated day. It's exhausting. Overall I'd highly recommend therapy to anyone and everyone. Even when it's going well. It has helped me learn every time I've gone. Even when I feel like I don't need it. Thank you for sharing your experience, and for giving me the opportunity to share a bit of mine. Above all, you're loved, my friend.

Recently got promoted to supervisor requiring me to do things I never thought I could pull off. So far so good but it sure hasn’t been easy and the stress is overwhelming at times. Acknowledging my weakness and making necessary adjustments has been key. I write EVERYTHING down. Even if I don’t go back and read, it helps me remember organically and I have noticed improvement. If you are struggling professionally just keep at it and make adjustments where possible and you will overcome. We will overcome. Good luck everybody!

Do what works for you and and change what doesnt work. And yes excercising works great. 3 days hard work, one day excercise. Works like a charm (for me).

I’ve come to say that ADD is a misnomer. It’s not attention deficit disorder; it’s attention deluge disorder. I see and pay attention to everything, and it becomes very hard to filter and select. It’s given my creativity, an incredible breadth and depth, but it takes a very long time for me to produce. What’s amazing about stumbling across this video right now is that I have been repeatedly over the last few years trying to make accountability partners out of my kids. Unfortunately my ex and I are not a team when it comes to our children, and maybe that’s because we’re both ADD. And no surprise, so are our kids. And it manifests a little differently for all four of us. This video helped validate my approach, but it is the blind leading the blind. Very difficult to create a structure. What’s really frustrating is I actually CAN thread a plan of action for somebody else by watching them try to do something. The big irony of a ADHD is that we’re trying to be present and in a productive flow, but having to consciously leap outside ourselves and redirect all the time kind of works against the flow part.

We are great at seeing other people’s schtik, less so our own. Also the environment and family culture we grow up in is how we build our emotional toolkit and some people got stuck with flogging a dead horse in that regard. ime sometimes this pov you’re expressing *may* reflect a dynamic that’s about trying to manage emotions of overwhelm and rejection. Not to say that your attempts to creat strict are a bad thing, obvs you love your family and are trying to make things easier for everyone, but nd folks generally have heard ‘you’re not trying hard enough’ quite a lot; and you may find that turning your attention on yourself and looking at CBT strategies to manage your own emotional response to how it feels when you efforts to organise aren’t working (eg, things like rejection sensitivity, overwhelm) that might help a lot to take the emotional pressure out if the situation. Also, because different tools can help have a look at these worksheets and if they seem like something that has a different approach to the one you’ve been trying then talk to your fam about what they think about this and is it different https://livesinthebalance.org/cps-materials-paperwork/ and then also have a look at thinkkids.org pages for parents. Evidence based and great tools and skills.

My kids are 16 and 20 at this point, so there’s a certain amount that they’re going to have to sort out - neither are on any medication, but even they were, learning to be more mindful can help mitigate, and that’s only works if the person decides to establish that practice and engage the right help.

@johnfreund4456 Yeah, totally.. may still come in handy .. it informs how I grandparent and also now a lot of my own self talk mainly because of its plan c ‘only tackle a few problems at a time, shelve everything else’ which stops me feeling that sense of overwhelm from a laundry list of things. But all the feels on the teen years I wasn’t diagnosed until I was a grandma but I was still a nightmare teen. So you defs have my empathy. The main reason I take medication is that it helps a lot with the emotional dysregulation, I tend not to get RSD effects at all when I’m taking it. But I do think that learning CBT from a great psychologist has helped me enormously. And there are some great DIY CBT content creators on here too. Also mindfulness. I do a lot if guided meditation type stuff. It’s how I quit smoking and the effects of a good track that I can sink myself into give me about three or four hrs of the same calm the medication gives. Takes about an hour though. Steve g jones does a really good ‘healing green liquid’ track. but really as you say, everyone is different and what works for me might not work for everyone. These are just things that don’t cost money that have made the most difference to me I guess… things I would have loved to know about much sooner.

100% on that. Diagnosed in my 50s. When I told some of my long-term friends, that I had been diagnosed, they replied in some form with good-natured sarcasm: “Really! You?!!!” Having a sense of humor about myself actually helped me. There is a disconnection from our autonomy that I think some of us feel, which often becomes the “I’m inept I’m lazy I suck” voice in our heads. The fact is, these thought patterns are part of our magic while they can also nail one foot to the floor. Being diagnosed allowed me to view the mental habits as part of me and not the whole. The self-effacing humor allowed me to turn that virtual 3rd-person perspective from critic to mentor, from self-effacing to self-soothing. …From “Lamont, ya big dummy!” to “John, you’re overthinking again”. Kinda CBT before I knew what that was!

But I’m so glad now I understand that people who I thought were being mean to me weren’t.. I was just being easily distracted and neither of us knew why.. But what I found most interesting was how many people wanted to reassure me that I probably didn’t have it.. like it was a definite net zero to get a dx, like cancer or something. It was really hard to get through to a few people that this was a wonderful thing.. bittersweet because if grieving who I thought I was for a bit.. it does really pull the ground out from under you eh! But also I found my tribe. I just kinda fell in love with life and my kooky brain. Because from the very first moment a freind said “I think you should read this” it was all just me. My life.

2.5 years ago during covid isolation, I first realized I have ADHD. But I didn't know what to do about it whilst the depressed mood worsens. I had recurring suicidal thoughts and came close to cutting my wrist. I thought I'd stay miserable forever, but I didn't. So I know you won't too, as long as you're willing to face the problem and don't ever give up on yourself. You all ADHD people in this community have my 200% support

Holy son of damn, man you just solved so much in life. All the problems I'm having and being affected severely, the solution is here. I was always thinking why can't I do it, what's the problem with me, at least now I know how to handle it in a better way. Thank God, Now just help me implement it and I can be back to life. You know I used to hear a tick tick sound of clock to feel time pass and it was so effective. I've done most of these techniques at different points in my life and the benefits are huge. but currently here I am, in my parents home, lying useless unable to move from bed. I am that brilliant kid with high grades but unable to do anything on my own now due to ADHD. It took me a long time to even recognize that I have ADHD, God just give me strength one time please. I've spent so many nights crying just thinking why am I unable to just work on my main target task. ah, guys just pray for me that I can get out of this...

We are all in the inattentive side not the hyperactive side. It's debilitating. All hyper bright, but what's the point when you can't get anything done!? School was easy, there was structure, rules, consequences. I also used to have a photographic memory, so tests were easy. I loved exams!

When he said that you have to change the environment around you in order for you to physically use the knowledge you have it sent me to tears. I always asked my family if they could do certain things differently because they don’t work for my adhd brain and I was always told “No but you can learn how to adapt to it” so its nice to know that what I was asking for is valid

@NishantShyamGoutam

@@HonestAuntyElle Thats the whole point you missed. The problem isn't merely confined to converting thoughts into action and its more about converting capability into performance. You can have the highest level of skill in a field and the definition of ADHD is that you can't turn your capability into action because of neuro-genetic issues of your physical brain. Practical solution is breaking a task - small or big into micro tasks and try to finish one task at a time. Killing your confidence and peace of mind by a relentless assault loaded with motivational thoughts (internal or external) is definitely not the way out. The best psychological self-help will be performing the immediate micro task and a proper handling of self blame & stigmatization.

What I hate is being forced to onto a monotonous motorway closely hemmed in by a million others doing 20mph when my car doesn't really come to life until it hits 120mph. Another useful sport analogy would be cricket with its combination of standing around and bursts of energy when a good hit is made on the ball, rather than tennis with its regular volleys. Yeah. F1 is much more fun. Lol

I've been procrastinating watching this video because I felt like it was "important information" so I wanted to wait for the perfect moment where I was 100% focused and attentive to watch it (surprise! it never came and I watched it the moment I "cared less"). His introduction was such a relief. "I don't care what you know, you're not gonna do it." I've always hated myself for things I can't do, but even more so for things I knew I had the skills to but never did. And while I'm not really diagnosed with ADHD (I am doubtful I have it either), it's very comforting to watch videos like these because there are some struggles I deeply relate to and knowing that there are ways to work around it instead of freezing in fear gives me a much hopeful outlook.
