I’ve tried every med there is, and they help a lot! The down side is that they also make my emotions very unstable, so I’ve been experimenting with taking the minimum dose possible with an extended release. Between that, diet, getting as much sleep as possible, and regular meditation, I’m doing much better than ever before. It’s still not anywhere close to “normal” though.

In the end, I’m not sure if anyone has any answers, and that’s OK. I think I just needed to vent some of that stuff. Most people just don’t understand what it’s like. They genuinely don’t know why I can’t pay attention, pick up on social cues, or any of my other “peculiarities”. I think I just wanted to hear some people say that they understand.
