If the Kid with Tourette's Could Stop Barking, He Would. Sheesh.

Finding others for video conference check-ins for self-employed

I'm a freelancer with plenty of ideas for what I should be doing to improve my business (and life in general), but I have a real hard time getting down to work without any kind of accountability or structure in my life.

Where do I find people who would like to participate? [more inside]

Early 90s Flashback

I was recently officially diagnosed with ADHD by a great psychiatrist who spent a lot of time with me and seemed very serious about helping me. He ended up prescribing me Ritalin. This was very surprising, and I felt like I was transported back to the early 90s (which was the last time I heard the word actually spoken aloud). What are the possible benefits of Ritalin over Adderall, which may have led him to choose this? [more inside]
