Slumps

The hardest thing about having ADHD medication is remembering to take your ADHD medication, and days tend to pan out differently when I don’t.

When these days start to snowball, I sometimes hit a slump: the blog posts become short and unremarkable; I have no interest in being around other people; I’m more vulnerable to snacking, on dopaminergic foods as well as activities (read: video games); and I just generally become less fun to be around.

In all honesty, this truth is a scary one. I don’t plan on taking this stuff forever, but for the moment it’s the best tool at my disposal.

Days like this make it hard to see the forrest through the trees.
