Coping and functioning
Isn’t that what we try to do? So if we have ADD ADHD we try to cope with it. We can’t cure it, but we can treat the symptoms, and we can use strategies to cope. And our life can be better.
Is there a treatment?
This is controversial. The medications-Ritalin, Adderall, Strattera, Vyvanse, etc. – help the symptoms for most of us. They make us more able to utilize the strategies to cope and therefore to improve our functioning.
Making things better
Improving our sleep, our diet, and our exercise will help our ADD ADHD. These are keys to health, not treatment.
Recognize and acknowledge
Once we recognize that we have ADD ADHD, we can begin to identify the specific problems it causes us. We can make strategies to help us cope with those. We can consider treatments for the condition. We can decide to improve our habits, which will help.
Our life can be better.
