I am still trying to get stable on meds. Straterra was working well for me other than the constant need to pee especially after going to bed. I hate getting up 6 or more times for potty before I can fall asleep. I tried Provigil, it took care of my constipation with flying colors, had more insomnia and my neck and shoulders were so tight that after a few days I couldn’t turn my head. Doing some Ritalin now, my emotional dysregulation is now set to 11 so anything that’s frustrating turns to anger and I have issues coming down, i blame Ritalin for this. I am open to others experiences with meds if you found a better solution.
I work in a fairly busy open office, work in helpdesk/sysadmin role. coworker has his phone set to vibrate and beep on texts and he spend way too much time texting and the vibrations against the wooden desk is super distracting. 2 doors down a director often times has speakerphone calls with door wide open. I cant go to HR or do anything about these things nor can I talk to these people as I will likely be dismissed. I also have people calling, messaging, etc that are overly dramatic and/or completely disregard any semblance of understanding of anything including our hours of support
So I get work is my is my biggest issue and somehow I make it through each workday, its outside of work my emotional dysregulation can kick in, sometimes I just feel drained. I really want to experience life, but after work I don’t feel like doing anything. I want to learn software development, how to play keyboard, draw or even take some time and play video games, I just have no desire, disinterested, etc
I have nobody in my life, so this is clearly not good and no other support.
