    I’m a 55 year old female and can relate to this. I’ve suffered from concentration difficulties for years but have never been diagnosed because I’m not that hyper. The hyperactivity in me is probably released through my physical activity. (I’m an avid runner and am training for my second marathon). Thank you for this informative article, its good to know I’m not alone.

      Hi Terry! I’m a 45-yr-old with ADHD, so I know exactly what you’ve gone through. My ‘saving grace’ has been the ability to work online from home and not have to be in an office and ‘conforming’ to set schedules for the most part. I tried meds once – but I felt like a Stepford wife lol. I was on Cylert and would literally stop *whatever* I was doing to pick a piece of lint off the floor. I stopped taking the meds and haven’t taken any prescription for adhd since. PureCalm and Focus Formula have helped me enough that coping has become much more manageable.

      Thank you so much for sharing!!!

      Many blessings,
      Dee
