      I've never because by the time that I figured out what it was I had already learned to manage it all my own.

      I was off my meds for 10 years because the type I was on didn't help me but now that I'm older realizing it's brain chemistry I take them for my own sake. I have been more productive and happy on meds but it was a struggle finding the right medication for your body as well.

      I mean not everyone wants meds, can afford meds, and needs meds. It's very normal for someone with adhd to not be medicated

      Sure! It totally depends on all your different individual needs and wants. I took meds when I was in school and when I was working and don't think I could've managed without them; now I'm mostly housebound from my physical disabilities and feel uncomfortable and agitated when I take meds.
