hello, I was diagnosed with ADHD in 2021, I have medication which has helped but not found much else in the way of help with my daily issues. I would be grateful to learn of others experiences.

      1. Stick to a routine: Having a consistent daily schedule can help you stay organized and focused. 2. Break it down: When you have a big task, try breaking it into smaller, more manageable steps. It can make things feel less overwhelming. 3. Use reminders: Set alarms or use apps on your phone to remind you of important tasks or appointments. 4. Find a good workspace: Look for a quiet and comfortable place to work or study, where you can minimize distractions. 5. Prioritize and plan: Make a to-do list and prioritize your tasks based on importance. This can help you stay on track and feel more in control. 6. Take regular breaks: Give yourself short breaks in between tasks to recharge and refresh your mind. 7. Stay organized: Use tools like calendars, planners, or digital apps to keep track of deadlines, appointments, and other important information. 8. Get moving: Physical activity, like going for a walk or doing some exercise, can help improve focus and concentration. 9. Practice mindfulness: Take a few minutes each day to practice deep breathing or mindfulness techniques. It can help reduce stress and improve your ability to stay present and focused. 10. Be kind to yourself: Remember that ADHD can present challenges, but it doesn't define you. Celebrate your successes, no matter how small, and don't be too hard on yourself when things don't go as planned.

      I don't take meds because I was never recommended any that would work with my various developmental disabilities as I don't just have ADHD. However there were a few things that do help with my everyday balance issues one of them is being part of the Special Olympics.

      There are some great resources like online creators who talked about their lives experiences and what has helped them, online therapist creators who talk about things that have been helpful to others and coping skills, there are also A LOT of books written about ADHD, treatments for it, how to manage it etc. I would recommend increasing your education and understanding of the condition which may help increase your self confidence in managing it. Think critically about what you can practically implement in your life and what your most immediate needs are and build your treatment from there. Accessing support and resources in your local community can also be really helpful. Most mental health agencies will have info about supports and services available. It can also be as easy as googling "mental health resources in (your area)" in my area there is a website dedicated to helping people find the right services called "413cares.org" there is probably something like this in your area. If you call 211 on your phone that is also a way to find local resources. It's like 411 but for services.

Another individual uses Adderall, but had previously tried Vyvanse which made them sleepy. They also suggested meditation as a beneficial daily aid. Yet another person mentioned that they use two types of medication - atomoxetine and lisdexamfetamine - for better productivity and motivation.
