I wanted to quit taking my ADHD meds, but this morning I had no motivation to get going to work.  A sort of apathy overcame me.  So I took the pill and sure enough, within 15-20 minutes I began to get going and ready for work.  I don't know if this is ADHD, but it helps me get focused to do the next right thing.  Later in the afternoon, I decided to not take my afternoon dose.  Somehow I spent 25 min on the phone with a friend and then one hour reading about food allergies.  Maybe if I would have taken my medicine I wouldn't have done that.  I don't know.  I was going to call my psychiatrist and see if I could go off my ADHD meds, but now I'm reconsidering based on evidence written above.
