Re: Today I am grateful for... (Part II)

I'm so grateful I found this forum, too. I've never met anyone, that I know of, who would understand what I've gone through. I've always felt like an anomaly, a freak. I feel like I found home.

Re: Today I am grateful for... (Part II)

The ADHD diagnosis I just received today after completing some tests and talking with the therapist. I was actually surprised by how much applied to me. Now just waiting to get an appt with a psychiatrist for meds. And is there anything more fitting than leaving for your ADHD appt and driving for several minutes in the opposite direction from where your appt is? Good thing I left my house a little early.

Edit to add: I just got a call from the psychiatrist and they can see me in two days! It's a little bit of a drive, but I don't care! I just hope it's a good psychiatrist.

Re: Today I am grateful for... (Part II)

Being back on Dex after too long a break...I absolutely kicked booty at work today.

And I will have to tomorrow...invoicing, bill entry, and when the parts arrive, build and set up a computer...in addition to the dozen-or-so little idiosyncratic tasks I have written down that need to happen...tomorrow.

But I am not worried...because with Dexedrine, all things are possible.


Step Over the Dead Bodies,
Ian

Re: Today I am grateful for... (Part II)

Finally got my blood labwork back after 2 months. Drs. Assistants are incompetent.

Anyway, lab results show I'm no longer within the prediabetic range. I'm back to normal which I'm very happy about.

Had reduced carbs (not to keto levels but much lower than the the maximum carb intake recommended for diabetics). I actually found that part to not be that difficult. So many natural substitute foods for carb items.

Hard part was deciding to go vegan as well. Still haven't succeeded there. Im finding it takes a lot more effort to make low carb vegan meals that taste good and variety is much more limited. Oh well, step by step improvements.

Thankful to have my son with me for the week. We live in two different states so I don't get to see him as much as I would like.

Re: Today I am grateful for... (Part II)

I love that Amazon offers Smile.

Every time I order something through my Amazon Smile account, The Center for Victims of Torture gets a donation.

As of now, I am responsible for 6% of their total donations.


Cheers,
Ian

Finally got a flu medicine from my workplace. I am feeling a bit better now. Caught a cold about 3 days ago.

Thankful for music. Feeling a bit down today...little stressed...so, as I often do, I pulled up YouTube to listen to the newest hits. Upbeat music always lifts my spirits. My current "feel good" song addiction is What Lovers Do by Maroon 5.
