The meds helped great today except for...

I am personally really starting to like my Ritalin, the somatic effects of this medication wane ever more day by day while the psychostimulant properties come to the fore...excellent.

Anyway, today was a great example. I remembered things many times while I was doing something, so for example I didn't need to run up and down the stairs several times for things I needed to do one thing.

I had one massive ADHD moment though. I was packing some of my things away that I don't use anymore...now I have my own apartment in my grandma's basement, seperate entrance, bathroom, and all that stuff, but she comes down occasionally for laundry stuff, since that is shared (I keep telling her to let me do it for her, but she's stubborn). Well I happened to be packing some of these things away in tubs I have piled in the back half of the laundry room, and I can't even remember what distracted me now, but I left three objects out in plain view on the freezer and didn't realise until just now when I went to get my laundry that I had left them there.

She came down for her laundry later in the afternoon today, after I had been distracted, but didn't say anything about the things I left sitting on the freezer, but I have a good idea why...

1) A pocket ***** in it's clearly marked box
2) A tube of lube
3) Some twoonies for prescriptions....

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA.....AAHAHAHAHAHAHA....DAMN!

Apparently I should up my dosage... if I could be distracted from something like that and not even think about it the rest of the day.

Re: The meds helped great today except for...

Sounds like they're working for you. I'm glad! Maybe try to stay focused just a little while longer.

Re: The meds helped great today except for...

I attribute their working better to 5-HTP. Forget the ADs, grab the 5-HTP! It's reducing my anxiety and lifting my mood more than any stupid SSRI, NaSSR, tri-cyclic, A-typical, or otherwise did. And it's only been three days, no side effects except a headache when I accidently took too much yesterday (3x the right dose, oops).

As far as focusing just a little while longer... my 'cock-ups' bring me great amusement.

I'd rather use L-tryptophan. It gets converted to 5-htp in the brain. 5-htp can have some health problems because sometimes part of it gets converted in the gut/stumach, and that way you can build op unhealthy ammounts of serotonin in certain organs. Google it, lots of info online on this subject.

In Amerika they think 5-htp is safer because of 1 incident with contaminated tryptophan from a company from Japan. They gennitically engineered bacteria to produce tryptophan faster, but they(the bacteria) produced another thing on the side as a little extra. That thing caused a degenerative muscle disease. But , that was just 1 incident with 1 company, and thats the reason why tryptophan is still illegal in Amerika
