ADHD Medication

ADHD medication,
Totally helped,

And now that I’m off it,
I’m really missing it!

Getting stuff done,
Like going to the shops,
β€”Stuff that I need to do,
Just isn’t that satisfying,
Anymore, lol;

It’s much better,
To procrastinate,
And write poems instead,
To do something meaningful,
That actually makes me feel good;

It’s funny, then,
To be in this situation,
Which, presumably,
Was how I lived my life before,
β€”Before the year on Elvanse,
To have these memories,
Of a pretty different way!

And the antidepressants make me sleepy,
They make me lazy,
So I still have to question,
Their real efficacy;

Whereas ADHD medication,
Made me awake,
And able to read,
Without falling asleep,
β€”For the very first time,
In my life;

I stopped taking it,
Because it was stimulant medication,
Which exacerbated anxious symptoms,
Such as OCD;

Which is a shame, of course,
As I was benefiting greatly,
Following my original course,
β€”Of improving the ADHD!

The great traumas,
Of 2019,
(Entirely avoidable),
Resulted in this,

But I’m not ruminating,
β€”Just thought,
That I should explain this!

And, of course,
This period has been useful as a way of comparing,
These different ways,
Of living and medicating.

Get to the shops you lazy bas***d!

But I do my best work when procrastinating!

  1. Dude…. I feel ya. It fucking sucks going from a happy energizing med to a med that makes you feel lame and tired….
    I take a LOT of caffiene to combat this. I don’t recommend it though! πŸ˜‰ I’m a nurse. It’s bad for your heart lol 😝

    1. Interestingβ€” you’ve been on both/similar medications too, then?

      Yes, I’ve been drinking a lot of coffee actually. Which I previously used to be quite sensitive too, and it would disturb my sleep for over 12 hours after drinking it. But that’s completely changed! Lol. It’s strange being able to go to sleep only a few hours after having some coffee…
