Medication Motivation

Happy Friday everyone! Since my post Na-Da, I’ve been a busy bee. The last two days I’ve been calm and focused, thanks to my Adhd medicine. I’ve been able to get so much done. And that’s the interesting thing about adhd and stimulants. Without them, we have a hard time getting anything done because we can’t focus on one task at a time. We get overwhelmed with all we have to do that, well, at least I, become ‘paralized’, and cannot do anything. But with stimulant medication, my mind calms right down and then I can focus on one thing at a time. Funny how that works with us ADDers.

No Focus Tonight

I am trying my best to be able to focus on, and write something interesting, but my thoughts flee me. The channels keep changing in my brain and every thought seems so superficial. I need more deep stimulating conversation and thoughts. I will be back on track soon. Bear with me. Oh,  if you have any questions about adult adhd  and/or living with it, leave me a question or reply in the comments. Thank you and have a great evening!

Nearly Normal

It is so nice to be able to focus on what I choose to, not what my mind wants to. My mind would like to be all over the place, but not today. Today I took the medicine that makes the ADD go away. Literally, for the next few hours, I get to be as ‘normal’ as any non-ADDer. That is the only reason I can write right now.
It is also so nice to actually engage in conversation with my husband. He can yap and yap and yap, and I will catch every word. Usually, I cannot focus long enough to chat, let alone, listen to my husbands looooong stories. Today is a good day for me. Enjoy yours!

Meds Work – If You Take Them

Being the “special” individual that I am; I take a few different medications daily to maintain (almost) normal function.  I live with adult adhd, depression, and anxiety.  It has taken months, if not years, to get my concoction of medications just right.  And at 7:30 every morning, I take them.  I cannot imagine how I would function without them.  But I know that there are individuals who could possibly benefit from medication therapy, but choose to not take medicine. I can’t understand why. If you are someone who chooses no meds , comment a quick ‘why’ below. Thanks.

Procrastination

Good Morning all!

I am facing a very busy day, and I’m not looking forward to it. You see, all of my housework I was supposed to get done yesterday, didn’t get done.  Instead, yesterday, I hyper focused on my phone. Now, I have a house in disarray, that must be cleaned today.  I just love procrastinating.  I put off any and everything I find daunting and unpleasant, such as dishes, laundry, dusting.  Well, I guess I should get busy.  Enjoy your day!

Medication Dilemma

The one thing about taking a controlled  substance for ADHD symptom management is that filling a script for such a medication is not always easy.
I just picked up my script for Vyvanse yesterday around 3 o’clock and took it straight to the pharmacy. Luckily, I decided to wait for it to get filled,  because just as the pharmacist was going to fill it, she noticed that the Dr had not signed the prescription.
I quickly ran the script back to the Dr  office to get it signed. Well, of course, there was not a Dr available to sign the script, so I have to go this weekend unmedicated.  At least I  can look forward to getting back on track Monday morning.
Take Care All!
