ADD progress continued

Posted on

So, to update on the ADHD-PI (apparently the current name for what was once ADD) situation: Dexedrine is going well so far. 4 days in and there are distinct changes in how my brain is working. These may seem perfectly normal to some of you but they're completely unfamiliar to me: 1) I am able to rapidly shift my focus between things and shift back without lost time.
