Do you guys think it’s important to personally bond w your coworkers? a lot of members on my team are trying to organize a socially distanced day at the park because they « miss everyone so much » and while I genuinely like/appreciate them as people... this feels so extra? I definitely don’t feel the need to go out of my way and see the whole team during a pandemic? Am I horribly antisocial or do most people care this deeply for their coworkers/team

I’ve long been a fan of the UGG classic short for cold winter days. They are however not waterproof and I refuse to repurchase them yet again just to keep my feet dry. So it’s time to look for an alternative. Which black and somewhat fashionable boots keep your feet warm on cold winter days? ❄️ 🥶

People moving to ATX. My circumstances may be changing and I’d like to explore subletting my one bedroom apartment. It’s a fabulous building downtown. It’s a great apartment - with a balcony on a high floor overlooking Fifth Street. Rent is sub $3000, and I could make you a very appealing deal on the furniture if interested. The place has been barely lived in. I will also cover all fees. You just need to be a credit worthy person. Hit me up!!
Hi Fishes, need some help in deciding my next company, have an offer from SAP LABS, ZSCALER & AIRBUS. The CTC offered by all of them is almost the same. I want to understand more on the lines of WLB, avg. yearly hike and the kind of work & learning ?

Do you ever get annoyed by people who complain about some work condition or slight that's very small and petty to you? I'm trying to be understanding, but it's a fine line for me once I start feeling judgy.

YouTube channel “How To ADHD” has been a really great tool for me and others around me. Just wanted to recommend it here.
Anyone had sexual performance issues on generic adderal (dextroamphetamine) that made a switch to something else and didn’t have those issues? I only take my meds 2-3 times a week to avoid the lethargy, but by that second or third time in a week I have issues.
Just took my first dose of Vyvanse today. 50mg. Made me irritable and anxious but hyperfocused and quiet. Is this common with ADHD meds? Does this go away? I am miserable. Don’t like this. Unhappy.
Day 5 of Wellbutrin for ADHD. Already seem to wake up easier and been able to focus a bit more. Really hope to keep seeing improvement and this isn’t a placebo affect so far!
Did I act irrationally here? I had an initial consultation with a therapist the other day to get a referral to a psychiatrist for BD + ADHD. I've called them to get the appointment set up but no response. So today, I found a new provider and was able to get an appointment booked directly with a psychiatrist next Wednesday.... Do I just tell the other provider I'm no longer interested?
Actions are probably bc of ADHD....🙃

I started taking Adderal, 2.5 g which is not really a lot. It didn’t really help with my focus, instead I felt restless and somehow nervous and really thirsty. And it made me clench my teeth. I do grind my teeth during nighttime but never experienced this in the daytime. Does it take time to get used to it?
I'd love to create a sticky post here where we can share what technology tools we use to do our job better as Adhd consultants.
I've posted a tool - please consider using a similar format so it's consistent and easy to follow.
Has anyone gotten a gravity blanket with the duvet and liked it? I have ADD and run hot so wondering if I should get it.
Does anyone ever struggle with when you take a little too much of your adderall (or similar med) & it finally does kick in all at once, your brain starts to overanalyze everything & you get so detailed that it becomes counterproductive? I’m either avoidant & unfocused or hyperfocused & too detailed, it’s equally as unproductive.
(I'm not sure if I have ADHD but it's the closest any thing has described my life so posting here, thank you for the safe space.)

I am 31, 5 YoE in Tech consulting Deloitte, my TC is 150k. I was trying for promotion to manager but since the last few months I feel mentally exhausted like I've reached my cognitive limit. My manager gets annoyed at me cuz lately I'm forgetting too much. Everyday I feel like an imposter and that I need to quit consulting given my anxiety, depression and ADHD..I don't want to be miserable anymore - I want to switch careers. I also don't want a decrease in my income. What are my exit options?
So weird I don’t remember joining this bowl (or why) but my new therapist recommended an ADHD assessment. I’ve been researching symptoms and can relate to a LOT of them (as a child and adult). I’m conflicted because I can stay organized when I track my daily routine (been using my daily planner consistently for 2 months yay) and I’m able to focus using Pomodoro technique. How do you differentiate b/w “normal” forgetfulness, time management issues, etc vs ADHD?
Comments on this are discouraging and why I don’t talk freely about being neurodiverse.

There are some studies showing that people with ADHD tend to die significantly earlier, mostly from accidental injury. To me, the long term risk of medication is worth not hurting myself like an idiot.
Additionally, I might reframe it as using meds for complex functions, rather than "work". I don't really plan on stopping, it would just make life harder on myself for no reason. I currently take my meds on weekends if I need to be organized, I will take them after retirement if it's what needs to happen for life to run.
Lol mine is the opposite. I only need it for work 😂
I was on it for 6 years and feel like I can barely do anything without it. It’s been months but fighting everyday to stay off of them. Can’t work so been on an extended holiday but starting to be able to go to the gym, clean, cook etc now but it’s a struggle
adderall has only been out 20 years, but the basic withdrawal effects are essentially heightened after prolonged usage of adderall (check out google when u get the chance). So no evidence of 40+ year usage, but have you been off your meds before? I can barely talk to people normally lol
Quantify “prolonged usage”?
I was on 15mg adderal for 5 years and had the same thoughts around not being able to function without it. I wound up doing a very slow taper and eventually got to the point where it would be early afternoon and would realize I hadn’t taken it that day. The normal function comes back, it just takes time so don’t go cold turkey, extend out the taper as long as possible and you’ll be amazed how the body rebounds.
I can live without it. But am a scatterbrained mess without it.
Yes- it’s a stimulant, and like all stimulants it carries the risk of hypertension and high blood pressure and all of the health challenges that go along with that.
My case is moderate so my doc switched me from ritalin to wellbutron with ritalin for bad days when I was in my 30s. I have family history of hbp and hypettension. Overall it’s a very different feeling and feels like a “downgrade” but I’m learning to cope and willing to take the tradeoff for longer healthier life.
I mean...is there evidence that meds cause that kind of effect long term?
They haven’t been around long enough to know the impact on someone taking it for 40years
Literally feel exactly like this. What do we do? 😂
Nope. I can live with or without it. But life is much easier with
