I'm in med school, and I believe the only reason I got as far as I did is by abusing adderall. I don't know if that is true or not, but it is what I believe. Sometimes I wonder if I even have ADD at all, or if I just let myself get diagnosed with it so I could get presc
[More]ribed adderall, because I knew medschool would be hard. I don't want to take adderall anymore, but I feel like I can't do anything without it. I'm currently on a medical leave from school to figure out my mental situation.
I have been on various medications for the past three years and I dont know who I am anymore or what I was like before medication. I don't trust medication because I havent found any that work for me yet.
I used to have goals and hopes and dreams, and hobbies. I used to have friends. I've isolated myself and I spend my days in bed on my laptop.
I know I have so much potential to do something with my life, but I have no motivation anymore. I'm ready to give up.
Just a quick note to say hi! I am in a very similar situation. I was in Nursing, half way done, but I've lost a lot of motivation and have had to step away from school and take a break because I was beginning to crumble. Difference is, i was on Ritalin, and while it helped for a while, I did not like how it made me feel. Then eventually it stopped working and made my anxiety worst. So know we (the doc & I) are trying to figure out what works for me. Good luck to you, I hope you find something that works, as well as peace.
