I was diagnosed with ADD this past summer and was put on Strattera...a non-narcotic drug. It is amazing how much we are all alike!!! Reading all this is like reading about my OWN experiences. The worst thing for me was the forgetting. I never could get my supplies together for a project without running up and down the stairs a million times. I was tired before I even started on something!! ha I too love to read and cannot pull myself away from it if its good...its called "hyper-focusing" in the ADD World! You certainly sound as if you have ADD. I also had the panic attacks and anxiety. I have been on anxiety meds for years. After being on strattera however, I found that I could go off the other meds. I am much more relaxed. I'm not saying I don't worry about the kids or their different situations..but I am able to let go now. I could hardly do that before. This is really a silly question that I have not asked anyone before. Ok...here goes...did anyone else "roll their head" as a child when they went to bed? I mean I would roll my head back and forth until my hair was so tangled, it would take my Mom an hour to brush it out. I couldn't help it. Now of course, I realize that I couldn't settle down enough to relax and go to sleep. If anyone else ever did that...please tell me. I'd like to think I wasn't a total luney when I was a kid!!! ha
