All For The “LIKES”

As I sit here in front of my laptop with my phone also open beside me, I wonder why do we really post all these memes and quotes and pictures to the internet?  Because we want “likes” that’s why.  I post to FB, Twitter, Instagram, Google+, and Tumblr (by the way, you can find me at all of these using my name karitaber), and I realize that the reason I post is because I want total strangers from all over the world to acknowledge and “like” me.  I think I’m doing this for some sort of acceptance or something.  Am I whats called an attention whore? Or am I just sad and lonely looking for friends?  Whatever the psychological reason, I really do enjoy the internet and everything it has to offer. And I’ll continue to post and hope for the “like”.

Not All Stimulant Medications Are Created Equal

Stimulant medication is usually the first thing a doctor will prescribe for the reduction of ADHD symptoms.  But these medications do not behave the same way in my case.  I was first prescribed Ritalin several years ago and it worked perfectly; the problem was that it is such a short-acting med that I was taking 2 or 3 a day, as prescribed. I wanted something longer lasting so I opted to try Vyvanse.  It has not worked beautifully.  Though these drugs are in the same catergory, they work very differently.  The Ritalin made me calm, focused, nice, patient, and smart.  Vyvanse, on the other hand, makes me feel like I’m an idiot. Sure it calms me a bit but that’s where it ends.  And, I wanted to explain that my posts are so short because I am on Vyvanse, and it does not help the focus.

Have a wonderful Tuesday everyone!

Daily Prompt: Purple ‘My Favorite Color’

At the exact moment I read my email regarding todays daily prompt, my husband and I were just discussing how flowers are dyed different colors.  My favorite color is purple and I love nothing more than beautiful purple flowers. I have always been a lover of all things purple and all shades of purple. Purple is the color of royalty, and my bedroom!  I can’t see why anyone wouldn’t love purple. via Daily Prompt: Purple
