The struggle is real. When you've capped out your stimulant dose adhd you get cut off to reset your tolerance...you lie around. You think about your life on adderall and feel almost nostalgic. "Why not just stay off the meds? They just make you an addict." Ah, the innocent ignorance of the masses. As with every other disease people think they're educated on, adhd doesn't just go away. There is no magic cure. No diet will mend the neurological transmission deficiency. The reason these risky drugs are the go to is simple: they're what works. They're the only proven method of symptom control. Again, like in any disease, some people suffer varying degrees of symptomatic severity, so while John Doe over there can get by just making lists and micromanaging himself, Jane Doe goes to scattered bits without serious help. When it's all said and done, watch your mouth and check the judgmental ignorance spewing out of it. Odds are that you simply don't know what you're talking about.
