    Oh my ! I also have both and addiction ! I am doin act which is accepting the thoughts in my head and commuting to action based on my values ! When I come here on additude mag I get obsessive about other people’s symptoms ! I am treated with a SNRI for my ocd and nothing for my adhd ! We have tried some meds that are not addictive but one ran out in the country and the other (modafinil) didn’t help !

    Staying busy helps me and getting out of the house doing task after task ! Sometimes I have obsessions and I just focus on something else that I like or am interested in and they go away ! Luckily I have been less obsessive and I’m working on myself and getting my life back on track! After trying to do law and not being fully able to finish it I’m in the process of switching careers and applying it to a new college while also working with my mother ! I have little time to worry !

    Update I had the best night sleep in days ! Today my caffeine intake was also very high .. I smoked CBD I feel calmer but still edgy . Maybe it would be worse . It’s getting close to time to sleep . Yesterday by this time I was knocked out due to the cbd ! With the lights on . I was passing out . Today I don’t feel the same way and I have vaped more today . There is no tolerance in cbd. I will see how I sleep tonight

    This is golden advice Andrea . Very profound and helpful! I am currently taking caffeine and I am a little junkie. I found it helps with concentration and other mental aspects to get my brain going ! It also gives me anxietu , which sucks . But I was more than 6 months without caffeine and it was like if I was in the air . Not fully hear . Caffeine helps me with motivation and other things but I sometimes abuse it !

    Thank you for your advice all these supplements help !

    I just bought a vape and e-liquid with 200 mg full spectrum CBD. I am a caffeine junkie and was very nervous ! Smoked a few puffs and it took the edge off ! I don’t feel super relaxed! I suffer from debilitating OCD. Social anxiety and Ashe . Apart from addiction. I read a lot about it helping with social anxiety . I chose the vape form because the effect is quicker . I don’t think it positively helps my ADHD . I got the email today from Additude mag that it’s just claims ! I will continue to give a chance specially when I need to take the edge off .it tastes good and smells good . It feels like I’m putting something natural in my lungs . I don’t feel high at all! Just a tad more calmer ! Hey will take it in the night as the caffeine has made me have poor night of sleep many times

    Damn… i had my hopes up for CBD… I think im still going to try it.. I suffer from social anxiety and awkwardness and ocd apart from adhd. At this point ill do almost anything to get my social anxiety under control, I dont think it can affect that bad executive functioning. Anyway my antidepressants affect my memory, and modafinil affects other cognitive aspects as well.

    I relate to some of your story. I also abused drugs and alcohol and now I can’t be prescribed any stimulants for my adhd, which sucks. It sucks to be an addict. But i disagree in the part that you said stupidity, i dont believe we are stupid, we are brilliant people. very creative. Sounds like your family doesn’t understand you and support you. I had a dad that put me down a lot growing up and shamed me trying to fix me. I suffer from social anxiety from that, im afraid of people and what they think of me. I also suffer from OCD, also started at the same age that I moved in with my father. Now I have an understanding mother who is very patient with me and loves me a lot. Im very thankful for her. Last time I was with my father he was understanding too, (he didnt yell at me at least). This forum has opened my eyes about adhd, and it all is starting to make sense. Now i have to rebuild my life, my reputation, having in mind that i have characteristics like impulsivity that can betray me and rub people the wrong way. I’ve made a fool of myself thousands of times. I also think whats the point, but I still have hope. One thing about us with adhd is that we are very perseverant and don’t give up. I believe many would have given up in my shoes, but I don’t. We also have gifts that we can use in our favor, so use your gifts. I always thought my real problem was social anciety and ocd, but being in this forum I see where it all started.

    This is me too.

    I have social anxiety but I never had it growing up. I got it after living with my dad, he was very strict on me and believed that discipline would “fix me”, but it literally broke me. I have now an inferiority complex like it was mentioned above, am filled with shame, and get really nervous around people. But i love people, I love social life and hanging out. Also i stay quiet i dont know why. People ask me why i dont talk i just zone out in my thoughts. Im also an addict so drug consumption might be the cause for this or being heavily medicated for my OCD. Yeap yeap yeap Im in the process of moving to Canada to treat these conditions better hopefully I can get some free health care for some cognitive behavioural therapy for my social anxiety and ocd.

    I want to try this and have been wanting to try it for a long long time. One of my symptoms is procrastination and that I dont feel like doing much. Its not depression. I am on effexor for my OCD, which affected my memory and many other things and that pisses me off. But i have to take it for now. I pospone doing the dishes, my room is a mess, i dont really have that motivation to do those things that are good for me. I walk , that is one good thing that i do, and i love it, helps me a lot. But then i just come home and lay in my bed and do nothing. I’ve also impaired my concentration by becoming addicted to my phone and social media (there’s research in this) but i can’t stop. I can’t take amphetamines because i am an addict, so i really would like my doctor who treats my ocd to put me on wellbutrin, heck, i could just go and buy it myself i dont need a script here where i live, but i dont want to self-medicate.

    Right now i am on Modafinil, which i asked for to the doctor, and it helps initially but i read a research (thats the bad thing about the internet) that said that it impairs creativity and decreases reaction time, so i dont want to affect my mind more.

    Hopefully my doctor will put me on wellbutrin but i dont have an appointment with her untill december. Maybe I will email her.
