Adderall : Day 1

Adderall:   Day 1

It wasn’t until iI sought diagnosis and treatment for my ADHD, that I came to learn just how dangerous stimulants can be if they are not prescribed.  

Just like any controlled substance.  Do NOT TAKE ADDERALL IF YOU DO HAVE ADHD AND A PRESCRIPTION.  

So after a lot of appointments, I was finally ready to start my trials with ADHD mediation.  

Here is my recount of how the day went. 

  • Took 15 MG around 5:30 AM
  • 7:OO AM started noticing effects. 
  • Ever watch an action movie and maybe it’s a battle scene or an action sequence in a big city.  All this noise and commotion?  Then it all goes silent even though the action is still going?  That’s what happened in my brain.
  • I was polite.  Used my manners.  Even smiled easier.  
  • I listened when people spoke and responded instead of only pretending to listen or walking away.
  • I completed tasks with ease, start to finish
  • I didn’t loose my temper once and when things didn’t go according to plan, I calmly recovered and found a solution.  Normally, it would send my day into a downward spinal
  • The day flew by and I didn’t feel drained.  
  • Normal coffee consumption: 6-8 cups
  • Today’s coffee consumption : zero
  • No appetite.  Usually starving by 8.  Didn’t eat a light breakfast until 11.  

Like it so far.  But it will need to be regularly monitored.

I was near the end of 2016 when I realized that my life was totally out of balance. I was 30 and I was working my life away. I did not have strong relationships with my wife, family, or friends. It was around this time that I came across THE HAPPINESS PROJECT by Gretchen Rubin. It was then that I decided to launch my own year long project towards personal happiness for the entire year of 2017.
