So I haven’t been diagnosed yet, hopefully in a few weeks. But I’m 1000% certain that ADHD is 90% of my problem (there are probably a few other pieces of loose furniture sliding around in there too).
In anticipation of going onto some form of medication, I’m really curious to find out how many of my problems will magically disappear.
Obviously meds are not going to do much for many of the coping/defense/turn-a-blind-eye mechanisms I’ve built up over my lifetime, and I’ll have to work at it.
From reading other people’s posts who’ve been on medication for some time, it seems that it’s an ongoing struggle for many people. I’d been led to believe that meds cause an immediate improvement in 80% of cases.
So how much of an improvement can I expect?
Of course, one size never fits all. But in broad brush strokes how much of an improvement have people noticed, especially starting meds later in life?
