I haven’t mentioned this here, but I am as hyper as they come! My mom used to joke that most parents worry about their 16 year olds losing the car keys, but she worried about hers losing the entire car. And, while the statement was made in jest, there was a great deal of truth behind the sentiment. Consequently, I have been on various CNS stimulants for most of my life… And I didn’t learn to drive until I was 18.
Lately, as I’ve been working, diligently to bend my life in a healthier direction, I’ve received lots of encouragement to taper/eliminate the stims.
Honestly. This scares the crap out of me.
But, in a bold (or typically forgetful) moment, I decided to give it a go this morning…
I get to work at 8am.
I felt funny alllllll day- physically, mentally, I was thinking Dude, maybe I can do this!
At 2:30pm it hits me!
That’ll do it!
Maybe I’m not so ready for that one… Which I’m ok with. I’m doing so many other things, and learning how to take care of myself. I don’t mind leaving a little bit if a safeguard in place. At least for now.
