Nearly Lost My Mind
I take my medication for my ADD 3x a day at a certain time of the day. The other day I forgot to take it before lunch and after lunch (before it got into my system) I wanted to jump out of my skin. I was doing some of the very tedious work that needs to be given attention to detail and I just felt sick.
I donÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢t know any other way to put it other than I really felt sick and uncomfortable. I could barely keep my attention on the work I was doing and had to keep putting my pen down :twitchy: My heart was pounding and I desperately wanted to throw the work into the recycle bin. I felt extremely irritated and just couldnÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢t concentrate.
I know this was happening due to not having my medication because this was how I felt before I was put on it. I really donÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢t know how I survived this job for like 6 months without it. For that matter I donÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢t know how I ever survived high school and college without flunking out.
IÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢m not always good at taking pills but when I miss the ones for ADD outside of work it doesnÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢t effect me in such an extreme way. I assume this is because there isnÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢t anything I need to concentrate on so much like there is at work :dunno:
IÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢m going to be much more careful now and at the same time itÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢s good to know how much itÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢s been helping me.
