Overview Dopamin

Alexander Fallo’s Dopamine is a poetry collection about getting an ADHD diagnosis late in life – and needing to live with it. These are sad, warm, frustrating, humoristic, energic and desperate poems written with 20mg Ritalin in the system. The author himself has the lived experience of leaving the psychiatrist with a letter about the diagnosis in one hand and a prescription in the other. And that was that.

What does the story of a life look like when you look back at it with a new gaze? Could things have turned out differently? What does a diagnosis mean? Is it helpful or does it cause further issues? Is there such a thing as something in between?

Dopamine is a personal deep dive which addresses memories and scenes from a life with a widespread diagnosis.
