Mike90lx Posted April 23, 2011 Share Posted April 23, 2011 My name is Cam, I am 40yrs old and was recently diagnosed with ADHD. What's funny is before this diagnosis I would have told you ADD was a bunch of B-S!!. Adderrall has made a huge difference in my life, more so when it comes to work. I am a route driver for a uniform company. My job alows me to work alone all day and am pretty much my own boss. Before the Meds I would skip anything I could and take every shortcut available just to get done earlier. And even doing this I was voted Most Valuable Employee the first year I was eligable. My work takes me a bit longer now, but everything is done right. The only reason I ever went to see a conselor was beause of my girlfriend. I was on a really self destructive path. Self medicating as often as possible and just not caring. So I have her to thank for my current state. My DR. just gave me a prescription for clonopin to help with sleep and anxiety. When on my Adderrall I am fairly calm and even headed. With out it I tend to get nervous and babble a bit. People in positions of authority questioning me send me over the edge. Example: Got pulled over a couple weeks ago driving home from work. Adderrall had worn off by then. Needless to say I was nervous and all over the place. I had 4/4 Addy/Klon in a pill holder on my key chain. The officers asked me what it was. I told them, nothing for me to hide. Long story short, I spent 28 hours in lockup for possession of schedule 2/4 drugs. What did I learn from this? Now I carry a copy of my prescription in my wallet. Funny the asked me how many and when do you take the Adderrall. 2/30's in the morning and hour or two apart. Then said why do you have 4 with you then. I was like duh, I have ADD, most off the time I forget to take then before I head out the door. Well that's my story in a nut shell. Cam Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
