ADHD meds are highly controlled here, though I don’t see a one month supply being an issue so long as you have a certified doctor’s note. It’s you and your luck if they check what you bring in - I’ve never had any of my meds or huge bottles of vitamins looked over. I’ve even brought in melatonin which isn’t sold or ~technically~ allowed here.

You can find more information at the links below. The first article is one the regulation was first announced, so it might be outdated. Best to review the ministry sites for the name of your meds.

Stress is causing a massive flare-up of racing thoughts recently. I feel like it's been at least a week or two since I last was able to completely clear my mind. And if it's not random stream-of-consciousness mess, it's music. Ever had a song stuck in your head? Because I've had one for four days now. Driving me nuts. Anyone else struggle with this/have a solution?

Atty as of July 2020. I planned to start a small firm with a fellow grad after school--then COVID happened. He continued forward with a solo crim def firm, and because I wanted to do business/startup law, I waited (again, COVID). I then got a job with the government (PSLF was appealing).

We gave this a lot of thought (incl. partnership agreement, business plan, etc.), and the itch is back.

Is it worth leaving the gov't and the PSLF gold handcuffs, or stay? Or should I wait for COVID to end?

Does ADHD have a big impact on your memory? It feels like if I don't have constant reminders set or leave notes for myself I can forget ANYTHING even if it's really important to me.
