Breathing easier

Posted 03-03-08 at 11:51 PM by Jarleigannor
It's been a full 3 days back on meds. It's gone great, other than getting blindsided by a migrane and nausea yesterday evening. I haven't had a migrane that bad in years. I knew I needed to sleep it off, but I was worried that the meds might keep me awake. Nope. Passed out around 7. Unfortunately, that meant I was up from 10:30 to 3am thanks to my little nap, but I'm delighted to discover that the meds aren't messing with my ability to go to sleep this time around. In fact, I'm *really tired...

Well, I am on day 6 of my new medication. So far the biggest side effect I am dealing with is the appetite suppressant. Not only am I really having to make myself eat, often I getting stomch cramps afterwards. Not that I can completely complain, I have lost some weight.

My only complaint with the Vyvanse is still that it wears off before I get home, so I land up spending my nights just a nutty as before.

Is nutty the politically correct word?

One more Time - Don't Tell Me how to be ADHD

Posted 03-03-08 at 05:07 AM by meadd823
A long battle - one it was assumed I would loose.

No I do not hold grudges I just happen to have an excellent long term memory. That lack of internal dialog was talking?

It was during many of these discussion where I actually met my brain. . . I am learning I have valid thoughts, my brain does work , while learning to stand up for these thoughts at the same time ~The ADD way~ =)

In other words, Barkley is saying that INHIBITION IS THE FOUNDATION...

Taking even more control

It's 8.26 am, and I've been awake for 26 hours-not unusual for me, this is my 5th night awake in 10 days. The Ephedra is definitely not helping with the insomnia.

I took too much Ephedra last night, and couldn't sleep. Then, when I couldn't søeep, I decided to just stay awake all night, and I took more Ephedra to keep me going. Then more. Then some more. I spent the night reading "Mrs. Dalloway", a perfect book for people with ADHD, it's a "stream of conciousness"-novel,...

~New to Blog and ADD~

Posted 03-02-08 at 06:05 PM by shesocrazy86
I am new to the forum, so first of all thanks for having me.
So I guess a little history is in order. I am 21 years old from Indiana. I work a relatively stressful job, but being a Type A personality, the stress and rewards of the job make it a very good place for me to be.
I was diagnosed with Adult ADD after my doctor was screening me for treatment options to address depression and anxiety. I was eventually prescribed Prozac, and a little hesitant to go on any form of medication...
