What would you do if you were put on ADDERALL when you were seven?
so i am worried about being on adderall.
because it is expsnsive and i want to rely on myself, not a drug/narcotic
mostly my health insurance is going away soon. and its 45 ♥♥♥ a bottle. i dont want to spend that much anymore
i really like adderall.
HERE IS THE THING!
i have been on adderall since i was freaking 7.
How do i know if im unable to concentrate if i never even learned how?
i have not been taking my meds for a few days, and am trying to stay focused without them ( i have no choice i ran out and have to wait a bit to get some more). anyway i have been able to get started at 8 am today and such (i have the week off btw)
but unspurprisingly i always drift off.
i have made a list of excuses i usually make to drift off:
-im just going to clean a little
-im just going to make some food
-im just going to take a shower
-it wont hurt to get on the internet for a little while just like 10 mins HAHAHA
-i am just going to listen to ONE song
you know things like that. things that are normal for everyne.
to where it seems like i just have no discipline without my adderall. i dont believe in myself without adderall.
of course thats totally different if what im working on is fun, or interesting or matters to me. there are days i work much longer than 6 hours. and i work when my adderall should have worn off.
anyway i want to graduate>< im sick of being in school.
but i feel like i have a broken leg sometimes. what im learning can be REALLY freaking hard and like my brain is being fried. But i learned this much already. It was way harder when i didn't know ANY thing about this program at all.
still its like this ADD brand. it really makes sense when people say if you believe you can do a thing you can. sorry for sounding cliche and all
how do i stop letting that feeling "what if i really AM just ADD?" keep me unmotivated ? how could i trick myself to come back to something even if i drift off ?.... because even when i drift off and catch myself there's this feeling "i think its hopeless to come back"\
i really do make excuses not to work too=/
what if being scatterbrained is the result of multitasking too much, and never making myself do anything hard without the adderall?
ya know this is a hard question. but it just seems fishy. my parents were way to distant to help me with school work or anything. i did not get much guidance as a kid because adults were always leaving me alone.
please serious answers only
i CAN focus on reading a book, researching things randomely like history, watching documentaries, drawing, writing a letter, writing a script without adderall
what would you do to trick yourself to come back? and not lose interest and steam because you think you have ADD? b

it creates euphoria in you for an hour and then you go into a working trance for like 6 hours
its actually commonly accepted in my country
sorry i thought it was common knowledge !

You're asking very good questions, and I applaud you for it. Don't have any answers in particular, but I think there are ways other than drugs to address kids who have trouble concentrating. Do you have a regular, strenuous exercise program (or regularly get a strenuous workout in your normal activities)? That would be one thing that might help, from what I've read and seen in others with attention issues.
Good luck. Don't stop asking.
