Embarrassing ADHD moments? I'll start

1. Drove home 2 hours tonight only to realize 2 hours later that I forgot my laptop bag

2. Went out of town and left meat out the freezer. Called an uber driver to use my padlock to get into my place and put it back

3. Driven off with the gas pump in my car. Twice

4. Walked in, paid for gas, walked out, got in my car and drove off

5. Forgot gyro meat in my air fryer for 2 weeks.

Oh god I didn’t realize these things were my adhd...

C2 that was my impression! Wasn’t being malicious OP. Mommy brain is a thing. You should have seen the outrageous things my mother did growing up. My old housemate didn’t have ADHD but was one of the most inattentive people ever. Forgetting things all over the place. Being overtired, overworked, stressed with lots of thing on the go impairs your cognitive ability impacting your concentration and short term memory. It is more “normal” than I think we realize or give attention to. That’s why for me I have to keep my life very organized and structured with proper sleep so my brain can function properly.

It’s a top 10 CPG firm so I’m a little curious why it’s such a small and unique group and was wondering if anyone had insights.

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!
