Reflections From Today

So I saw Dr W today, my psychiatrist. I told her how I don’t like being on Strattera and how tired it makes me feel. I also told her that it’s not working all that well anymore because I haven’t been able to focus or concentrate on anything lately. She asked me about my stressors […]

Out of Control

My ADHD is out of control. It’s been out of control for the past week or so now. The Strattera is obviously not helping and because it’s been keeping me drowsy so much lately, I’ve decided to stop taking it. As a result, for the past couple of days or so, I’ve been extremely depressed. […]

Medication And Tea

So I’ve been battling a sinus infection since 10 days ago and it’s persistent. It refuses to go away. Well, I thought “Hey, maybe some tea will help…” seeing as tea contains a lot of healing properties. I just realized that taking Ritalin and drinking caffeinated tea (in my case, I’m drinking green tea), is […]
