Rick- Thanks so much for your reply and advice, I’ll have to lookup that video. I’m going to give my medication at least another week until I talk to my doctor about the effects. I’ve noticed a big difference If I just take it with food (which I should have known) that has protein in it, and really be mindful of making sure I take care of myself while I’m on it. Eating properly, exercise, etc. That’s always something I’ve had to be aware of because of other health issues but I’ve kind of slipped off the boat lately because of my job. The medication has seriously curbed my craving for anything sweet or caffeinated. It may not end up being the one I stay on, but it’ a good start.
Gianmaria-I know how you feel about artistic accomplishment. I never graduated from college, so I applaud that you actually finished it. I’m also an artist but could never stand art classes. I definitely understand what an uphill battle it is to try to be a successful artist, having adhd is like adding a one ton backpack to that uphill battle. It sucks working in customer service, looking at other artists making it (especially terrible ones!) and wondering “why the hell can’t that be me?” That’s awesome you want to do cartooning or comic book art, I always liked that kind of illustration.
Time management is a huge problem for me, though I’ve noticed so far on adderall, that time has seemed to slow down? It’s as if, all the sudden I have all this time and I don’t know where it came from. Hopefully I can make it work, because time is a huge issue for me.
Adderall may not be “the one” for me, but so far it’s shown me that medication really does work, and the things I may be able to actually do if I keep up with it.
