So, I was diagnosed like 3 weeks ago, and finally had my meds appt today. I was put on 10mg 2x daily of Adderall. I took my first dose today and I cannot beleive how quiet my brain could be. I was able to sit through a meeting without interupting people, sit down and start a project, and even open facebook and close it after I sent my message, without obsessively scrolling through with no end (hello hyperfocus!).
Is this what it feels like for your executive functioning to actually work?? LOL
But I do still feel a bit of heart speed (but nothing compared to my anxiety, so its like barely noticeable to someone already on edge 24/7). But my legs and fingers aren’t twitching. It’s weird.
But on a serious note, has anyone ever gotten on meds, felt SO much better, and still doubt everything? like, think its the placebo effect or that you are still faking? I know conciously that there is a difference, but there is that voice in the back of my mind that wants to still tell me that I’m faking and now have drugged myself, or that its only working because I beleive it’s working.
Anyone else have that feels?
