If there are members on this forum who live in the MD/DC area, who haven't signed on to this section, it would be greatly appreciated if you do.

We coordinate a lunch for members on this forum, in the surrounding areas- and it's incredibly difficult to locate members otherwise. Now that the weather is incredibly delicious- we hope to do it monthly !!!

You don't have to list your city- just replying to this thread will be sufficient.

If you have further hesitations doing that- please PM me or Speedo to receive future invites for the lunches.

Thanks

Nova

Thanks Tristan !! (I still love your avatar Girlfriend !!!)

I'm hoping more people will 'sign on' so we can send them the invite..otherwise, like I said-it's impossible to figure out who's where on here if:

'WE DON'T KNOW WHERE Y'ALL ARE AT !!!'

LOL !!

Do they let people whom wear Calven Klien boxer briefs go to these things ?Cause we know some people don't care for them. What about dancing -Do they let people dance if they're so inclined ??? :p

You are sooooooo determined to be silly, aren't you, Will ? (0:

As long as you wear something over them- I don't think anyone there would care.

There will be different bands, playing (blues was the theme of the last fest), and so of course they allow dancing. It's outdoors- in a rotunda area, surrounded by a cafe, a Chinese restaurant, an ice cream shop, and other shops- so if you get hungry, there's plenty of food and beverages items, you can purchase.

Hi MD area ADDers,
It's been awhile since I last posted but I was living overseas (due to husband's job). Sorry I missed the party but I just picked up this forum again.

Although I must seem like obsessed (see last post) regarding the availability of GSK Dexedrine spansules, I DID NOT plan on posting on this subject as I have been able to get my meds. HOWEVER, just before signing in, I stumbled on this little gem of info from a narcolepsy site:

http://www.talkaboutsleep.com/message-boards/viewtopic.php?p=111478&sid=60edcb0975bde398424e6f4d97ed39b2


Posted: June 29 2006 Post subject: Medication Shortage Alert Notice
As a member of NarNet, I received the following alert. I asked and was given permission to post this very important information on our message boards


Narcolepsy Network has learned through reports from several members that there is currently a nationwide shortage of dextroamphetmine tablets and capsules manufactured by Glaxo-Smithkline (GSK) and sold under the brand names Dexedrine and Dextrostat. A company representative attributed this shortage to "several challenges with [their] own internal processes" that have led to "supply issues", and estimates the shortage will continue until October 2006.


Many of us can only take the "brand" version of dextramphetamine, aka the "ridiculously priced older stim. whose patent ran out when Hitler took them!". Plus, the only generics (Mallinkrocdt or Shire) that approach the efficacy, not to mention lack of side effects, are almost as expensive as the brand so why buy them insuranced or not?!!

And yes, while I have been still able to fill my scripts with GSK spansules, the last 3X they had to be ordered specially (oooooo, do ya THINK Georgy is keepin track?! Will I soon answer that early AM doorknock while still in my see-thru nightie? :p ).

No problem.
It's good to be cautious, until you get to know people, anyways.

We usually just post a notice, for the meetup on this thread, and then ask those who are definitely interested to usually PM Speedo or myself, for location/directions.

It's always informal, and tons of fun !

Hi. I just joined this forum, and I live in Maryland and SORT OF in the DC area (it's easy to get there by commuter bus).

I have ADD, inattentive type. I'd enjoy meeting other adults with this condition.
