I have read these forums for years but never posted anything until now.
I have been working on tugs/barges for almost 20 years and have been previously diagnosed with ADHD.
I know that treatment would help me in all aspects of my life but I’m fearful that my company and/or coast guard would not allow any medications such as adderal or vyvanse.
Can anyone help shed light on my options?
I have managed well at work but not so well at home. The distinction is that while I’m at work, I am so immersed (not literally) with the sea that it’s all I can focus on. I love working and put great effort into being the ideal shipmate but when I am home I am a scattered mess and partner.
Thank you for any advice in advance.
