Is it misleading to just look at Total Compensation from a $ dollar value/ Total Compensation seems to be much more subjective than base salary in terms of its value. Some factors might be:
RSUs granted on dollar value or by # of shares & stock price trends
strike price on ISOs & delta between strike price and real market value
For instance, most of value in Amazon's comp seems to be granted in years 3 & 4, but it's well known that most people last only 2 years max there.

I’ve been taking 70mg vyvanse and 20mg non time release adderol for years now. And I definitely still take more pills than prescribed. Yea I like the slight rush I get but in general I have bad anxiety and am out of energy if I don’t take anything. I get paralyzed to do the most simple things without the meds. I can’t help but take more than I’m supposed to, has anyone successfully quit meds and still was able to focus, have motivation, and energy?
