mind racing

I'm that rare breed of people that truly does not enjoy taking any sort of medication aside from the average cold meds. I was "diagnosed" with ADD my freshman year in college, and to be very honest, I thought they were wrong :) It was a long process of psychiatric evaluations, tests, and "talks" about any difficulties I have in paying attention............I tested with ADD. My parents do nothing half-way :) I had to do it all. Done.

Years go by, and I am now in my "career" per say, and I thought I was having a really bad case of forgetting. I will leave faxes unsent in the machine, my coffee in the kitchen---you name it, I'll forget it. I will literally "forget" everything!! It is horrible and I'm sure irritating to others :)

JR finally convinced me to try my ADD medication again, and it has worked wonders! ADD does not allow you to complete tasks without being easily subjected to other surrounding activities. You will leave your whole life unfinished because something better caught your attention, ha! Very frustrating! I succumbed to my ADD, and will see how the next month goes with it! Heck, I may conquer the world!!

The mix of my ADD medication and my new love for coffee has left me like this:
