Hello, everyone! I’m a junior in college and I went to go get diagnosed with anxiety recently because I’ve been struggling really badly for the last few years. However, recently I’ve had problems getting my ADHD meds (adderall) because I’m out of my home state and I messed up appointment stuff (so basically I can’t get my medication without jumping through a bunch of hoops cause yay controlled substances). Recently, we had a large winter storm and I was unable to pursue any action regarding getting meds. I was left off of my medication for a week and I realized something.
My adderall was causing my anxiety to worsen considerably.
I don’t really have the resources to change medications or do trial runs right now (I want to talk to my normal doctor about all of this when I’m back at home in the summer), but I’ve decided my mental health regarding depression and anxiety is more important than productively functioning. (A lot of other decision making went into this as well such as finances and things).
My only problem now… is I still have to accomplish my school work and ya know… live.
Any tips for things that can help while I don’t have any medication? Getting things accomplished has been difficult to say the least.
