How do those of you that have this deal with it? I am finding it harder to deal with. It feels as if I can never shut my mind off, it is always racing & feels "cluttered". I have a terrible time concentrating on anything. I find myself getting irritated/annoyed over trivial things.
My racing mind also makes it difficult for me to sleep. I've seen a Dr regarding this & the only thing he did for me was prescribe sleeping pills (Ambien).
I feel like I'm about to lose it. Any suggestions?
Have you tried swimming if you can in the evening, my son has ADHD he was diagnosed about three years ago, his doctor suggested anything to do with water swimming warm bath before bed, he could not fall asleep as well once his medication would wear off around 6:00pm he would get all wired again, his neurologist prescribed a medication called Clonidine it is normally given to heart patients, he takes it around 7:00 pm and falls asleep about an hour to an hour and a half later and wakes with no lingering side effects. Hope this helps
