37 y.o. with ADHD here, diagnosed a few years ago. Ritalin works a bit, but gives me headaches. Dexadrine doesn't seem to do a whole lot except make sleep impossible (hence the 6am post). My psychiatrist says that if I don't tolerate those, I won't tolerate the others, either. Are there any non-prescription supplements or medications that might help and have some kind of hard evidence to support their efficacy? [more inside]
I have a list of psychiatrists my insurance will cover, but I don’t have good resources for a referral; All the doctors I know are in NYC and my plan is almost exclusively NJ. I have no out of network coverage. So...I know this is kind of a longshot, but does anyone have feedback on any of these psychiatrists (links inside)? [more inside]
I get bored and lose interest in things so easily. This particularly hurts me when it comes to time management and doing the things that will develop my business over time. I get a spark of motivation and excitement when I discover a new system (hey, scheduling and mapping out long term tasks in GCal - neat!) or a new website (hey, Remember the Milk, I can jot down tasks before I forget them - very cool!) or new software (hey, I can't think of any right now, but - wow!). At first, I want to learn it, set it up and find excuses to use it, but it seems like that gets me about two weeks before I stop -- even if it actually made me feel good to use it! So, what to do? There are only so many shiny new toys out there, and I already have some really good ones that I know work. Do I just have to brute force myself to use the tools I have, or are there some tricks to keeping it at least somewhat enticing and interesting? [more inside]
