Not that you need to defend yourself against a year old comment, but I've never heard someone who takes stimulants for other things say this. I've compared experiences with a couple friends who've been prescribed adderall for "difficulty focusing due to depression" and their response does seem a fair bit different than mine. They don't seem to get any of that self awareness that is so striking to me.
Yeah! What I always try to tell my friends is that its the THX drug. You know, whenever a movie uses surround sound and it starts off with all the different sounds and they all converge into the same tone? They never really understand it though. I guess because they don't hear every little thing around them and haven't had to make sensory deprivation chambers just to study.
