    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.

    Umm okay, my stomach says no more double tall mochas. Go back to the regular amount of caffeine! But brain says, need more caffeine! Conflicts.

    getting skype back and chatting with my friends in Japan is nice.
    I'm also glad that we appear to be on friendly terms again. I missed your company.
    a little less conversation, a little more action please

    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.

    I know what you mean. I hated taking pills for my depression some years back, I just got sick of taking stupid pills all the time, but if I didn't... things didn't go well. One of my kids takes Focalin for his ADD, sometimes it didn't seem as effective, but other times he said he would notice the change... it was like part of his brain turned on that had been sleeping, and he found it much easier to focus.

    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.

    I hope your day gets better.

    If your avatar is any indicator, caffeine will not work. What you need is a princely kiss!

    I have been fighting with this same frustrating issue for over a decade. It is especially bad in school when the stresses of living on a very tight schedule start playing out their effects on my mind. If I got diagnosed the meds might help me do better academically but I would have to surrender and accept the fact that I need the help. Hence, decade long struggle and mediocre grades. Good luck getting it back under control. Mine has been really invasive lately as well.

    Ow. Boxed wine was the wrong choice.

    Oh no, that's no good. On days like that when I have to make it through another day at the office, I take an Airborne in case I'm fighting something off. It works well for me. Then I load up on caffeine, and find somewhere to take a nap at lunch if I'm desperate. Then I go home early, chill out, and go to bed early. If you have an anal boss, negotiate your leaving time and when you'll make it up. Most reasonable bosses have no problem letting you leave early if you're a good worker and not the type to always try to shirk work, which obviously you wouldn't do.

    Hope you feel better soon!

    Thanks! I was actually much worse as a kid, but luckily my teachers understood it was a focus problem (with some help from my mom and a few insightful primary teachers). My mom was very insightful in understanding that I needed a challenge, which helped a lot. She was always telling me to find a friend in class to have a friendly competition with.

    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.

    Wow, I didn't realize Js struggled with this, I thought it was a P thing (ie Ne, Se). But I hear the army is extremely regimented, so I guess if you're not an extreme SJ, you might have the same struggles that a Pe dom would have in other situations. Yikes, I don't think I could survive in that environment.

    Thanks, good luck with yours as well.
