F*, I've been having the worst ADD of my life lately.
Maybe I should just go in and get diagnosed. It's just that I hate the idea of being drugged instead of just using self discipline. But this is fucking ridiculous.

Dunno wth is wrong with me today. No energy, feel like I got flattened by a truck, can't stay awake, feel on the verge of being ill, and just want to cry all day over nothing that I can figure out. I don't think it's hormonal. But geeez.... Just let me turn out the lights and crawl under my bed, I don't feel like coming out for a week. The weather's supposed to be crappy anyway, so I suppose it wouldn't matter.

Psychological stuff seems so dumb, as if we should just be able to power through it without bio-aid, running on sheer force of will, but sometimes we can't... and sometimes we just get so drained there's nothing left to draw on.

“Pleasure to me is wonder—the unexplored, the unexpected, the thing that is hidden and the changeless thing that lurks behind superficial mutability. To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft

Ow. Boxed wine was the wrong choice.“Everybody has a secret world inside of them. All of the people of the world, I mean everybody. No matter how dull and boring they are on the outside, inside
them they've all got unimaginable, magnificent, wonderful, stupid, amazing worlds. Not just one world. Hundreds of them. Thousands maybe.” -Neil Gaiman

Hope you feel better soon!
I'm probably only borderline ADD. I did ask a counselor about it once (while going to her about something else), and some of the main diagnosis questions they ask is if you had trouble in school (no) and if you have trouble thinking deeply about things (no, just mundane things I hate that I haven't relegated to subconscious routine and habit, which I run into a lot).
So I'm not sure if extreme Ne counts as ADD, but it manifests itself similarly in certain situations, like now.
And I agree that medication is definitely a good idea for some people, especially for depression. Sometimes there's just a chemical imbalance there that puts them in a downward spiral, and it's important for them to get out of that mindset so that they can then start making some changes to their external lives as well as their internal lives, and maintain a healthy psychological balance. Hopefully some people can eventually get off of them, but I'm sure there are also people who legitimately need them permanently.
I think ADD is probably over-medicated to active and imaginative kids who don't have enough outlets for their energy and creativity, but I think there are definitely some legitimate cases, as well.
Thanks, good luck with yours as well.
