Faster than the speed of sound

Two words: Adderall ROCKS!

I've gotten more work done in two days than the last 6 months combined. Self prescribing is wrong I know and expensive too(!)but I got a job to keep. Unreal medicine though that Adderall. It makes sleeping hard but thats what Ambiens for. What goes up, must come down.

I saw a Neurologist last week and he did an MRI and went over my history. MRI looked good. "ITS NOT A TUMOR." I've had two skull fractures in my past, numerous other injuries to the head as well. And I dabbled in my share of recreational illegal substances as a kid too. Nothing since I was around 20 y/o but it still counts he says. He's making me go to a Neuropsychologist to do this 6 hour neuropsychological testing. He says it will tell him if I have ADD or depression or dementia. If I have dementia which is really a nice way of saying early alzhiemers I'm gonna be pissed.

We'll see what comes of it. In the meantime the legalized speed is working.

See?? I'm not blowing smoke out of my ass when I say better living through pharmacology! And you can't have dementia, because I won't allow it. I've had enough of that for one lifetime (and since I am close to the all powerful Oz), so it is spoken, so shall it be. So there.

When you start cranking out 3 posts an hour with redundant content then we'll worry about you being a speedy dementress (new word).
Unfortunately amphetamines are strictly on my list of contraindicated substances to prevent eyeball blowout. But I'll enjoy vicariously.

And if we have to count the illegal stuff from my early twenties...well, I'm not going to say anything else.

Modern pharma is awesome. And I ought to know! Dementia? pish posh! Quirky yes, but not demented. Mark it.

Dear peedee,
I'm not seeing the early Alzheimer's. That brain of yours is popping out thoughts and connections perfectly well.

I'm extremely pleased that something at last is going your way! Now if Dr. Grumpy clears the rest . . . keep us posted.

Keep a-going,
Ann T.

Ok so maybe its not early alzhiemers. But my memory does suck. We'll see.

The Adderall helps but its not a fun drug for me. I dont like taking it. I am focused but theres a speedy edge to it that I dont enjoy.

Quirky?? lol

Look at it this way. Your house may be the cleanest it's ever been in years, though you may be up all night, every night, to do it.
