Yep, like sometimes I am speaking another language (and often it’s because my brain moves faster than my mouth and I leave words and sentences and entire events out of a story or discussion because my brain has already moved past it).

I don’t really trust myself, ha. When I have to present in important meetings or when I have an important conversation, I outline the most important talking points in notes I keep on my screen or written down to make sure I cover things in the right order and with the relevant details for my audience (but not TOO much detail, as I also struggle with being concise). I read them over to make sure it actually makes sense (and sometimes will get advice from others—people who aren’t as close to the project or whatever it is—to make sure they’re able to understand what I’m trying to convey).

I will practice if I want to seek more like I’m speaking off the cuff, but I also have noticed people don’t mind/notice if you’re referring to notes here and there as long as you don’t seem like you’re reading verbatim and as long as you know the core message (like if you have to refer to your notes to reference a stat or some research or figures, that’s fine).

Sometimes you can even throw in a caveat: “I’m going to summarize the most important points, but please feel free to interrupt to ask a question if I don’t cover everything you want or need to know—I’ve been working on this a long time and I’m familiar with all the nitty gritty details but recognize that not everyone is and my broad summary might not answer everyone’s specific questions.” That kind of covers you (without making you seem like you’re a bad communicator) if you leave something out.

Same. Sometimes I stop listening to myself talk/zone out while I’m talking and then “come back” and wonder what the heck my mouth just said while I was on autopilot.

Anyone really struggle with lectures? I find it challenging to do online trainings when I have to listen to an hour of a recording of someone talking over a PPT.

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.

How much would a 30 day supply of Vyvanse (30mg) cost me after insurance? I know this is going to vary by plan but I'm still curious as to know how expensive of a medication this is.

My pharmacy informed me that the insurance will not cover without authorization from the psych. My psych was wary about this & instead suggested Ritalin during my session. He mentioned that insurance companies want us to first try Ritalin because they are generally cheaper. How much truth is there to this? Thanks!
