What's Up Chicken Butt?

Recommended Posts

I have been browsing these boards for the past hour - very helpful stuff here!

So I thought I would register so I could put my .02 in.

History: I'm a thirty-something Mom of 2. Long long history of "stuff" - starting when I was in my early teens. I had a diagnosis of major depression for a long time, but didn't have really consistent psych care until 3 years ago. (I moved a lot, when I was younger would get meds when I was very depressed then go off of them when I felt better)

I have a current diagnosis of Cyclothymia (have been stable on Lamictal and Zoloft for over a year now). Just got a diagnosis of ADD (inattentive type) and started on Adderall today. (Guess once I got stablized, we could find more crazy stuff)

I've struggled w/ eating disorders a lot too - anorexic in high school, moved to binge/purge (exercise purging) and then just to binging. (Which made me fat) I'm hoping to get my eating under control and hoping the adderall helps with that.

My first impression of the Adderall is that I can't believe how mellow I am! (Anxiety is way down) I'm truly hoping that it will help w/ my inability to concentrate and FINISH stuff. It would be nice to go to the store for milk and leave with..... milk.
