As I am going through my journey of getting off of some of my medicines, I have been doing a lot of research on what I'm taking and what I can do instead of taking them. One of the medicines I am on is for my ADD. The doctor is reducing the dosage and has hopes of taking me completely off of it. I'm not so sure how I will do without it.
As I researched, I was reminded that symptoms of ADD are at times not being very organized and not managing time well. I know that I have blogged on wanting to improve both of these areas in my life. So now I have questions. Does this mean that the medicine hasn't been effective or does this mean that it will be worse without it? How can I be more effective without relying on the medicine? How did I do it when I wasn't on the medicine? Much to think about and much more to research. I guess that I will find out a lot of what I need to know in the coming weeks. I'm going to try to journal a bit on how it goes every day just to see if I can gauge how I'm doing.
