'lo

Hi guys,

I'm new here, obviously. From Perth, Western Australia. 32 years old.

My doc, who has been treating me for an anxiety disorder for some years, recently suggested that the problems with concentration that I'd been complaining about loudly and persistently since he met me sounded like ADHD (probably PI) and he thought starting me on Ritalin might help.

I stumbled across this forum while trying to find some information on Ritalin and its effects that was a little more helpful than "OMG, THEY'RE GIVING OUR KIDS SPEED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!111". I'm quite sensitive to stimulants, and have had problems in the past with building up a tolerance to prescription drugs, so I'm a bit nervous about trying medication that is an addictive stimulant.

It's been really good reading about other people's experiences, and I now feel somewhat reassured that I'm probably not going to instantly morph into Hunter S Thompson the first time I try the stuff.

I've also been feeling a bit like Gonzo in url=http://muppet.wikia.com/wiki/Gonzo#Gonzo_the_Alien]Muppets in Space[/url] when he discovers that there's this whole planet full of creatures like him out there.
