    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!

    Gina,

    Thank you for validating that ADHD is real and has serious impacts on the lives of its companions.

    There is a push to disqualify the condition which is unfortunate and kinda demeaning.

    I feel so misunderstood and find it difficult to silent the voice in my head that tells me I am what people say I am. Lazy, crazy, all over the place, unreliable, inconsistent, arrogant, incompetent, and the like.

    We are truly amazing people with a special way of thinking that I believe holds the key to a lot of awesome that this life has to offer.

    Run on fellow ADHD's, RUN ON!
