Just adding to the chorus here.

I was diagnosed a few years ago at age 69. After 3 marriages, a few almost marriages, 4 bankruptcies, multiple jobs, and one big emotional breakdown (anxiety, panic attacks, and depression).

Methylphenidate helped, but my psych took me off of it due to blood pressure issues. Coffee helps.

I don't totally regret being diagnosed late because I might have missed much by being neurotypical.

Anyway, thanks for putting the info out there. The world needs to know about ADHD.
