Why so serious? I often ask myself this same question, but with much less enthusiasm, angst, and donut face then my daughter in the video above. Lately I've found myself letting loose a bit, and I tell ya, it's weird.
With me, it's all or nothing. I am either in complete control or completely out of control. There is no "just relax a little" when I get uptight or tired. Yesterday I let loose with a few videos I came across on facebook, with very little damage done. However, offline, I was a complete waste. I usually get a few hours of studying in each day, but yesterday I did none. I joked around with my coworkers all day. Some of you might say "so what?" but now here I am, the next day, still having done nothing but eat a shitload of candy and goof around all morning, rippin out this gnarly blog on a whim with no real purpose... but some days are like that. No purpose.
I get like this sometimes and think about how different things were with meds and wonder why I ever wanted to stop. Look at what I'm capable of, however, with a little freedom from the Ritalin Ball-and-Chain. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QZ-hhTbyzew&index=2&list=FLzIZ-1evkXb71_XphBsztUQ
I can't put the actual video on the blog because it's not listed, but it's my daughter and I performing Little Bunny Fufu in character... Who does that? Certainly not Medicated Andrew. Just saying. Then there's the Friends I've made. I have to say I'm glad to have taken the time to get off meds and learn more about my "tribe" as we so affectionately refer to ourselves. I have come to know more about myself and others like (and unlike) me with ADHD.
So as far as being medicated, I will continue not to be. It's ok to be unsure though, from time to time.
