Roller23: really does sound like we have somethings in common. Thanks so much for all your advice! I feel the same way about antidepressants. I dont want to be classified as "depressed". I dont feel like I am, but when I look at it from another angel...and like you said, I come home from work at 3 p.m., from that moment I sit on the couch and watch TV until I fall asleep. I SLEEP ON MY COUCH! I have a very COMFY bed....yet I sleep on my couch!?!

I'm very sorry to hear about your mother..I know it is a very difficult thing. My father was also in his 50's; he was 53 when they found him..It's still very fresh and hard to think/talk about it. And I know what it is like to be a caretaker. I was 13 when my grandmother was sick and moved into my mothers house..leaving me to care for her while my (single) mother was working to provide for us. The best thing that came from taking care of her was the memories. We were able to get so close because I had no choice but to make her my first priority and spend nearly every moment of the day-for 3 years with her. It was very rewarding...and if you do choose to persue your dreams in nursing, that too shall be very rewarding. You sound very ambitious, and I hope you do follow through with school. It has been the best decision I have made in a very long time!

I thank you for taking the time to help me with my questions, but like I said to 09rachel1018, and like you said.. I'm affraid to ask him. I dont want him to think for one sec that I have a problem, and then take me off the meds all together. I have told him that with concerta it WORKED..but now its back to square one. I can't keep up with my professor, and I feel like the whole class is fine, but I lack. Thats when we tried ( I started with Vyvanse) concerta, it worked and then 1 month later it stopped, switched to Focalin..that didnt work at all, so he said if focalin didnt work we were going back to concerta because it worked. Well yea when I started back on concerta it worked again for a couple months but now its not. I have tried 72mg of concerta..but that made me very angry. So I'm on 54 mg. Im affraid to ask him for a specific drug...
