heard back from my pdoc
she said to stay on the 5mg for two weeks
then go up to 10mg
if I'm still uncomfortable then she will switch me back
Yesterday went ok, no bad mood
Got some stuff done

I know I can't expect too much of myself. Be reasonable.
I really should look at what I have done instead of what needs to get done.
Also, recognize that I'm trying to manage what's been out of function for a while and it takes patience and love. Really, if I needed to help someone else take care of their stuff, I could do that! Why can't I take care of my own things?
I can be patient with someone else (most people), why not myself? So, attitude adjustment, I guess is on the agenda today....giving myself a break, a pep talk... :) I always did respond better to positive pressure :)
I think I read that somewhere about ADD kids...if a teacher notices they do good work they do better! But if a teacher keeps saying "do the work! do the work!" they will probably be like...."um..wha?" I think that would go for any kids :)
[QUOTE=zeeree;4898406]Did your doctor ever mention Intuniv? It's an ADD medication that was originally intended to treat high blood pressure. It's not a stimulant medication ([U]perhaps[/U] not as effective as stimulants) and it's brand name ($$$), but it could potentially kill two birds with one stone for you. Knowing you I'm sure you probably know as much or more about it than I do.

Did you have high BP before you started taking ADD meds?[/QUOTE]

My BP has just started to hang around 140/90 this year.(yes before ADD meds) My last physical the doc said I was pre-hypertension. Nothing to warrant meds.

I did like how the adderall brought the BP down.
I just took my BP now and its still 140/90 blah

I haven't slept well these past two nights and skipped the gym, these past two days...so what can I expect...

I can only prepare for tomorrow to be better by making sure I have my workout clothes ready tonight.
Also....I need to ensure I get a good night sleep. I apparent slept through a thunderstorm last night from what my kids tell me. But I still over slept.
I think because the adderall is getting out of my system maybe?
Any kind of change? Who knows?
I tend to get depressed if I don't workout and it's two days....so today I am feeling not so great...
Upward and onward!!
