To: Mr. Edward Modestino,
Re: your posting (Jan 1999) and your research on a subtype of ADD that predisposes to the development of hypersomnia or narcolepsy
I will provide you with my official diagnosis(s) and subjective symptons and experiences, etc., etc.,
*** Hypersomnia diagnosis is currently pending
I will receive my nuerologist referral on 02/09/01
My psychologist is working with me and my doctor to get me tested immediately, he and I both are confident it will be a positive diagnosis.
I have all the symptons, may have begun as early as my childhood/teens but certainly a severe problem for me, since late 1995.
**** Hyperkinesis/Hyperkinetic/Hyperactive diagnosis as a toddler, @ 3yrs old and prescribed Ritalin then, but my mother stopped me from taking the medication almost immediately.
So I grew up knowing I was "hyperactive" but I never realized there was a correlation with subsequent psychological testings in elementary school and other "special" classes I was placed in.
**** I learned of ADD/ADHD, etc., etc., in 1997, after receving a brochure on hyperactivity, mistakenly mailed to me by NAMI. I had requested various literature from NAMI because I was doing my own research to find out what was "wrong" with me. (eg. depression, dissassociation, anxiety, panic, etc.,)
So please provide me with your direct email address and/or contact information if you are still interested in obtaing more research.
Or, if you've finished your research project, may I impose upon you to provide me with a copy of your findings and determinations?
