About social issues

Posted 02-29-08 at 10:34 PM by Ethereal (The Unbearable Heaviness of Being)
I've spent hours reading old threads on the forum over the last couple of days, and especially one thread struck a chord in me. It was about ADHD/ADD and the ability to maintain friendships. Most of the people who replied in the thread have the exact same problem as me- they easily get friends, but have trouble maintaining friendships over time.

I've struggled with this all my life, also, we moved a lot when I was growing up (I've lived in 18 different places so far), and I got used...

The consequenses

Posted 02-29-08 at 01:11 PM by Ethereal (The Unbearable Heaviness of Being)
As I said in the introduction post, I've been prescribed 80 mg Ritalin a day (Two 40 mg slow release capsules, which I find don't work as good as the pills, but my shrink refuses to switch), but I keep overdosing- I use up a whole month's worth of Ritalin in a week. This month, I even lied and said I was going on vacation (which I actually am, but not for 2 weeks), and had to get my prescription filled a week earlier. This means I have to go through 4 weeks without my meds.

I'm desperate...

yea, i said i was going to update after i took my second adderall 20mg yesterday.

i got so caught up playing with my animals and reading messages on here that it kinda slipped my mind.

anyways, i was surprised that 2x20mg lasted me all day yesterday. one IR at 7am, one IR at 1pm, and no crash or comedown. by the way, these are the corepharma generics ...

last night, i slept like a baby. in fact, it was probably the best sleep i've had in a REALLY long...

Hi!

Posted 02-27-08 at 01:12 PM by Ethereal (The Unbearable Heaviness of Being)
I'm a newbie on this board, but I thought I'd start a blog right away, I think it will help me a lot writing about my struggles. I write in my personal journal as well, but there I don't get responses from others, which I think will be useful (and fun!) and I also have a źnormal╗ blog, where I've only mentioned my ADHD, not that I'm a food addict, and that I abuse my Ritalin.

So, my nickname is Quirky (Obviously because I'm quite quirky). I'm a 24 year old female from Norway, struggling...

downgrading from vyvanse to adderall ...

Posted 02-27-08 at 12:52 PM by paravis
ok, so here's where i'm at right now ...

it's been eight months since i started drug treatments to deal with ADHD. i started with strattera for about 3 weeks, but i didn't like the awakey sleepy feeling i had 24/7 ... like, feeling awake when i was asleep, and feeling sleepy while i was awake.

so i switched to vyvanse. vyvanse was great, it lasted all day long and there was *never* a comedown. the smoothness was so transparent that it was as if i wasn't...
