Anonymous asked: what do you mean "biologically harder" dont tell me you're gonna say ADD or ADHD or something like that
Actually sweet sweet anon sit down a let me tell you a little story about that, let educate you about “ADD” and the drug they use to combat it and why my learning is more impaired because of it. It’s a long read but I hope you will give it the time.
Allow me to offer a different perspective:
I, too, have ADD , but my meds don’t lead to those kinds of effects. I was diagnosed in 4th grade or so, and I take meds daily for my ADD but I don’t notice those side effects. In fact, I love my meds because I always feel off my game if I don’t take them in the morning. All they do for me is help me focus which helps me both academically and socially. And I can still function academically off meds, but it’s harder to focus without them. They do not affect my personality or eating habits, so my case is diametrically opposed to yours. Saying that medication is always bad for you is not true. It depends on the kind of medication you take and the severity of the ADD. You should try taking medication at first, and if it leads to awful symptoms like that, then you can drop it, but you shouldn’t be afraid of giving it a try because for some people it can really help. From what I’ve heard, adderol is the scary ADD drug, because I take Concerta and it’s never given me problems like that, but don’t quote me on that.
I hate it when you finally accept one of your insecurities and then someone makes a harsh, unneeded comment about it and it puts you right back to square one.
