    I brainstorm a "quick and dirty" way of handling the task, and all of a sudden I get enthusiastic about doing the task; it's positively fun to do a half-assed job on a task that's been bugging me forever. I look at the finished project, and I say, "You know what? Good e-fucking-nough" and pat myself on the back.

    I have a list of affirmations that I look at every morning. One of the most important is "PN/Fi: BTGWKHTHI (DTQ&D)." That's shorthand for "My Fi Personal Narrative shall include the following item: Be that guy who knows how to handle it: Do things quick and dirty."
    haha i love this. quick and dirty is a phrase i use a lot to describe my personal style.

    It worked for me because it made me actually get up and do the things instead of thinking about them, it might not work for everyone though.

    Well, just take it easy. Amphetamine addiction is no fun.

    Don't get pulled in if it doesn't work. I got very dependent on it for a while.

    It wasn't good for my anxiety. Sometimes it made me really nervous. But I guess it depends on the individual. I hear it actually alleviates anxiety for some. Then again, maybe I did too much lol

    this is more about social anxiety, but still an interesting read...Adderall For Anxiety Disorders: A Counterintuitive Treatment Option

    maybe if society wasn't set up to be so intense, we wouldn't need to choose between amphetamines and drowning.

    i'm so sick of the "glorification of busy". i want to enjoy my life and that doesn't mean working every moment to me. if people thinks that makes me lazy then fuck them.

    that's why i'm really trying to just make my life simple and full of life. i just feel like that's pretty hard to do in this country at this time. i've made big changes, but here i am unshowered, feeling anxious, and making this stupid thread. it's hard to feel encouraged when you feel like there's no escape from it.

    I'm really sorry you're feeling this way. And yeah, society's ills often play a role. I agree completely.

    Ah Fiver, this is exactly me! Totally what I do so frequently, I just lost track of it... I don't know what to do with it, I've never thought it's anxiety, but when I think about it, I guess it really could be. I don't know how to help you , fortunately I have my days of being very active and get all the things I pushed away done in almost no time so it really helps me to deal with the pressure. But I know when the feeling like you described comes, there's not much you can do and you just feel totally incapable of doing anything, even though you know you have to and you feel this terrible pressure inside of your body that is telling you "Get up, get up don't sit here like that, that's so wrong!" But you sit there anyway. Ah...I know how unpleasant it is, I just don't know how to handle it myself... so I am just going to say I feel you and pretend it should help you.
