I tried

Posted 11-17-08 at 07:14 PM by SuperChan
I tried
I tried to find them, but no songs
Seem to have the words to express how I feel.
Fun, laughter, pain, lies, betrayal,
Only words, but they mean so much.
Tears of joy or pain, doesn’t really matter,
They’ve been shared.
I tried to be the best friend I could.
I tried to be there for everyone,
I tried not to judge.
I tried not to be walked on.
Take it how you may,
Be there or not,
I still tried.
I will still...

Ritalin's first day at College

Posted 11-13-08 at 05:19 PM by RiverIsSerenity
Today seems great. I am not dragging myself, half daydreaming, around campus. I can focus on the lectures, gave a great presentation, am finally doing the blogging I had planned to do from the first day finding this forum. Yay! I'm still doing the half pill thing. I think I will stick with this dose and ask my P-doc what he thinks in two weeks. Who was it that said, "better to ask forgiveness than permission?" I'm pretty sure he won't mind since it's a reduced dose.

5mg is better for me

Posted 11-13-08 at 05:15 PM by RiverIsSerenity
My first day on Ritalin 10mg ended with a goram migrane. I was pretty sure the migrane wasn't a side effect because I had the beginning hint of a migranish feeling before my psych appointment. That was on 11/10/08

11/11/08 I woke up feeling much better. I had that "morning after an evil skull splitting migrane" feeling though. I decided not to take any Ritalin because I had a full day of school that day and didn't want to risk a second headache.

Bottom Line: This is my day 1 experience on Ritalin. I havn't been diagnosed through testing. My starting dose is 10mg 3x per day. My next appointment is in 2 weeks.

This morning I had my first appointment with a psychiatrist about ADD. I go to the VA Outpatient Clinic. He did a 20 minute history and said that it was "straightforward, uncomplicated ADD." I like...

ADD + ADD = Happiness

Posted 11-13-08 at 05:04 PM by RiverIsSerenity
I am married to another ADDer. We have different traits though. He's a imagine lots of future projects, forgetful, optimistic, there's-got-to-be-a-pony-in-here-somewhere-just-look-at-all-the-horse-poop kind of guy. I'm a day dream about fantasy situations and the past, forgetful, pragmatist who dispairs at all the horse poop kind of girl.

We have the best marriage! He makes sure that I keep laughing and I try to keep us from sinking the ship with sticky-notes and lists and reminders....
