I'm with you on buying presents. It's been so stressful for my wife and I that this year we told everyone that we are foregoing buying presents for adults and instead gave what we would have spent to a family that needed it so they could provide Christmas for their kids. It's a win-win situation for both families. This is the best I've felt at Christmas in a long time.

As for being functional without meds, that's definitely true about me, but I'm going to pursue meds. My first few tries were through my family doctor, and that didn't work out like I had hoped. I'm seeing a neurologist next week in the hopes of getting some professional guidance. When I took meds they were helpful, but I just didn't know what to expect, how to determine what dosage to take, when to increase or decrease my dosage, etc. I probably could have worked through it myself, but every single stinking stimulant med I took -- Ritalin, Adderall, and Vyvanse -- gave me bad migraine headaches. And Strattera? Don't even mention that horrible drug to me. I'll never touch it again.

Gotta go. Thanks for replying!
