5 Worst Things Adderall Did To You?

I used to use and go crazy on “home improvement” projects (aka marriage avoiding and destroying projects) and then get so upset that he “wasn’t doing anything”. It’s insane and heartbreaking to think about.

Were you able to save marriage off the evil drug?

I left the marriage while still on Adderall. That was four years ago. Mind you, I sometimes say that I had no business getting married in the first place. Adderall became both a coping mechanism as well as a death knell. My ex and I are friendly and I'm in a new relationship that is the healthiest one I've ever had.

I need to give it a chance.

I don't like to acknowledge some of the good things that drug did for me, but the coping mechanism was one of the biggest plusses.  I guess that when you are high all the time you can cope with just about anything.  I was taking care of my aging and failing mother, as well as a new puppy ten years ago, at the time I said it gave me incredible patience.  Now that I have another new puppy, I must acknowledge that remarkable coping mechanism.  It takes all the patience I have not to strike this precious puppy, for just acting like a normal puppy requiring care and monitoring 24/7.  It was easier being high on adderall, although I know I didn't give the last puppy the quality training this one is receiving.
