There are also alternatives to medicines. Some of them apparently are helpful to some people. I’m working on my lack of information (i.e. ignorance) about them.
Note: I’m still working on trying to correct some of my previous misconceptions. A mind is hard to change. I looking at information from Maya, Dr. Parker, and others, and will get back to you.
Question: do you use medicine- ritalin, strattera, adderal, concerts, vyvanse? Or strategies? or both? or neither? (this is like a survey!)
