So I have ADHD, I have recently gotten an official diagnosis but i've know for a while. I am taking the next step and starting medication for it which I wont get deep into what i'm taking but I will say the first one I tested I started Monday and took for the last time yesterday. On Monday I took it at 8am, I was super nauseous for almost the whole morning and I went to a few classes that I had that day knowing that I would probably have to ask my teacher if I could go to my dad's class because of the meds, I did during my second class (Out of two) with about 25 min left in the class. I said I was feeling sick because of an ADHD med that i'm trying but in reality I felt a tiny bit sick but I felt high, I wasn't going to say those words for obvious reasons, I went home after that part of the day was over and then left home again about half an hour later to go to scouts, at scouts I was not thinking clearly, I was supposed to be in a different group and they asked me if I wanted to do that instead of what the rest of the people were doing but I said i'm good out here. I ended up being hungry for the first time all day at around 6:30 and I had a hard boiled egg with me that got eaten in like two bites. Closer to the end of the event I talked to my trusted advisor Ms. H about it because I was having a lot of anxiety about it and she has helped me a lot with anxiety issues, She made me feel so much better and said "I know taking a new medicine can be scary, but you are a strong girl."
Yesterday I felt bad enough that I was in bed watching tv with my mom all day. We emailed my doctor telling him what was going on and he said to stop the meds. I will most likely be trying another one next monday and am equally as scared, I will probably talk to Ms. H again and see what she thinks.
This will have follow up posts just to let y'all know what's going on but for now this is what's going on.
Have a good day!
