I am new here and I am so thankful I have found you people. I have been on adderall for the past 8 years. Lead to failing out of college with no degree and buried in student loans. This drug is pure hell and has ruined my mental, emotional and physical health. I have been clean since March 3 and it has been the hardest thing I have ever faced in my life. Coming from someone who was naive enough to think that I would never be one to face addiction square in the face. I’ve learned that addiction does not discriminate and it can happen to anyone. Gained 37 pounds in four months, no energy or motivation most days to even get out of bed and brush my teeth and shower. Digestive issues, 3 colon surgeries, 4 root canals, loss of my hair and scars all over my skin from picking. Damn this battle is hard. Does it ever get any easier?
