... among other things a closed head injury. Deep in the brain where temperture-time- math- and the likes are located. My profession was P.T. so have a small amount of knowledge. Since 2001 have lost all drive- motivation- can't focus-stay on task- finish projects- an anti-depressant prescribed cause a 45 lb weight gain in 3 mos. Never have dropped the weight. Tried everything. Talked M.D. into a diet pill. Never really lost much weight in the 3 mos. you're allowed to take it, BUT slowly awoke from the living dead. Or that was how I felt. Could think clearly-stay on task. saw all the projects started not finished- could look at my file cabinet which before the MVA was kept where I could put my hands on whatever I needed, to a hodge podge mess. I got to where nothing was important anymore I didn't care if I lived or died. Death looked inviting. I did not realize how bad it was till I was put on the diet pill. I wanted to finish the projects started- I could think clearly again- I cared again- I felt again. We my M.D. an I felt ADHD meds maybe what I need. My brain I feel quit producing some chemicals. She prescribed Ritalin. In a week I was worst than before taking the diet pill. Sleeping 18 hrs a day - anyway read adderall may help me. Please tell me what you think. Life is not worth living as it is today. For a short time I felt alive again able to think and had the drive to complete task I had ignored some for years. Poor decisions I'd made became obvious and clear. I do not want to go back to a life with no passion, drive, motivation or joy. Please help me. Putting together something for my M.D. I know they have little time in this day and age to think outside the box. Hell, most won't if they could. Most M.D.'s don't care enough anymore. PLease help me
All I can say is im very sorry for what has happened to you and i will have you in my prayers. Dont give up life is very much worth living and i just recently lost a very close cousin of mine in a car accident that was fatal she was very dear to me. All I can say about adderall is it has done wonders for my son he is 9yrs old and focuses and has very good attention now. He is what you would call a severe adhd case very hard nut to crack but once we figured out what worked for him it was like heaven sent. It is very likely it can do the same for you and i say go for it.
