I have ADHD.
As an adult, and someone who spend many years thinking the very idea of ADHD was silly, this was a difficult pill to swallow (literally).
Naturally, even after coming to terms with the fact, it's difficult to grasp the idea that I will be popping pills every day for a long time to come. It's not something that I tend to want to do.
I read about alternatives often, and fish oil/omega-3 supplementation does seem to have some benefits. Along with the alternatives I have decided (and the psychiatrist agrees with this idea) that I'll only take ADHD medication when it is needed. This generally means only during the work week.
For ADHD medication this is okay. What about others? How do you deal with this issue?
