I mean, it's an amphetamine-like substance, but I've been having a lot of trouble sleeping the past two days, took my first of the day at around noon each day (we're working from home until next week), and promptly was able to nap for a couple hours each. Now, a big part of why I can't sleep is that I've been having some really, really dark thoughts (which I guess I'm going to need to talk about with my therapist today, but that's another matter altogether) and the Ritalin seems to push those out enough to where the fact that I'm super tired takes over for a bit, but damn, yo. Is this how things work now?

If it really helps you sleep then I'd say keep it up! I'd kill fo0r a sleeping pill thay works on me!
