Interesting, my mind is CONSTANTLY “changing channels” like that, and I have become the most forgetful person in the world. I’m 31, and I think I’ve only gotten worse over the years. A female “friend” of mine is convinced I have ADD, and lent me a couple of generic 10 mg Adderall tablets to try. They made me thirsty as hell, but DEFINATELY more focused and productive. I wonder if I should try to get a prescription, and just use it on the days when I’m really dragging and/or not able to focus.

IT SOUNDS like a mad idea, but it works. Take children who are unruly and unable to focus on their schoolwork, and give them amphetamine-like stimulants. Far from making them bounce off the walls, the drugs can turn little terrors into attentive students.
I’ve always had a sneaking suspicion that I have some form of ADD. I have trouble focusing on one thing for too long at work and my forgetfulness is legendary. But, when I take some ephedrine, I feel focused.
Does anyone else suffer from similar problems? If so, do you take anything for it?
I was on rittilin for ADD in high school and when I enlisted in the Marines, I was told to stop taking it and did. Ever since then I hadn’t resumed, and never noticed that my ADD had gotten much worse. Long story short, I’m on Concerta now and the world is much better.
Life sucked when I was not on medication for it. Like a tv that CONSTANTLY changed stations and was the most forgetfull person in the world. Life is much better now.
