Hello there, I was diagnosed with adhd at age 9. But alas I couldn’t afford medication growing up since I was from a less fortunate household. Throughout the years I never really noticed how much it affected my everyday life until recent years. At 23, it’s tearing my life apart. I am unable to remember most information and instructions presented to me as my brain runs rampant and tosses out information that doesn’t entertain me. I constantly have to write things down or else I forget them at work or school. Like most cases of adhd I remember stuff i enjoy quite easily like hobbies and etc. I just want to ask if there’s any tips or help anyone can offer for someone on a lower income without insurance for medication. I just want to remember thing and focus

      Sometimes companies that make medications will work with you to afford their product, if you tell them your story.

      It definitely depends on what the situation is. If you’re trying to manage your ADHD at school or work, you should try to get accommodations. Even simple things like written instructions, recorded lectures, etc can be really helpful. If you’re trying to manage it outside of one of those, the best I can probably say is that exercising before you try to do anything tends to make it easier for me. Sorry that I couldn’t be much more help. I’m pretty new to all this as well. Hope things work out for you!
