I’m not sure what’s happening with my brain lately. But I’m pretty happy with it. See, about five months ago, I started trying to figure out why ADD meds weren’t working for me. It started off with seeing a specialist that works with adult ADD. And we did some tests, which I’ve mentioned before, that resulted in me being told I “probably don’t have ADD, it’s probably a sleep disorder.” A sleep study indicated otherwise. My sleep is normal, no apnea, hell, I barely even snore. Okay, great. At that point, I had been off my meds for three months (since March of this year). I haven’t been back on them, either.
So the weird part is that my ADD-like symptoms are gone. At work, I’m able to focus and get shit done. I remember shit that has to happen. My motivation is far better than it’s been in a long time. I don’t know what’s happening here, but it’s awesome.
Rather than hang my hat on “all better now!”, I’ve decided that I need to keep tabs on my productivity and my forgetfulness. I’m going to start keeping tab of the number of tasks I’ve done, number of times I’ve forgotten to do something, and the number of times I’ve intentionally procrastinated on something that I have the time to do. Seems like a reasonable solution.
