Excuse My ADHD
I will wait
Sep 09, 2019 Season 1 Episode 4

 As promised this episode is all about my experience with Pharmacogenomic testing and also the rest of my diagnosis and treatment to this point.  The title pretty much says it all.  I waited, and waited, then waited some more.  I got results and waited again.  Having ADHD and going down the medication road is a crap shoot you don't know what will work what won't and what side effects you will experience.  Then you also have to know how will this affect your other issues or medications. You may as well just sign up to be a research subject and get paid for all of the different medications and doses we have to try. Guinea Pig is an accurate description, and I don't know about you but I am getting tired of being one.  So come join me as I see if I can science my way out of this wheel. 

Here is some 'light' reading for when you can't sleep...aka science:
