Focusing on myself and reminding myself that no matter what’s going on in the world I’ll be there for me! I spent the entire summer living for myself and making decisions for me. I feel so much happier right now to a point me I feel like I can take this world by storm again. It was a long journey and I’m just glad to be able to get through this past year.

When requesting a raise, has an employer ever asked you for the cost of living? As an example- asking you to list out a future mortgage payment if you purchase a home, the cost of health insurance for your family, etc. Seems intrusive and weird. Raises should based on value, not what a mortgage costs…. but maybe it’s common.

I’ve taken Adderall for several years & it has helped a lot for my ADHD. However, recently I have been increasingly overwhelmed with balancing work, school, & home life.

My doctor has suggested switching to Vyvanse instead. What are your thoughts on Vyvanse vs Adderall? Has anyone has had more success with it?
