Never Mind the Whining
One side effect of the cavalier medical system available to the citizen with ADHD is that he or she will be required to go without medication for an unknown period of time on an irregular schedule. For those of you who know better and know that it must be the fault of the patient, you are very sincerely advised to get this problem and try to solve it without money. You are invited. I have been managing this for about 30 years and I assure you what I tell you is true. You will be expected to go without medication.
And when that happens, there will be or rather, there may be, a variety of transitory mood states.
I inflicted one of these states on my friends on Facebook and my blog in the last few days. I am very sorry and I hope you will accept my apology.
When I go off medication, then various anxiety disorders that I normally manage (e.g. suppress) work there way out to the world.
I wish I could promise you that it will not happen in the future but I cant. I know that I will have to go without medication and I know that this will bring out the anxiety disorders. From there it is hit and miss whether I will bother my friends with it.
The alternative, of course, is what you already know, which is that I become a recluse in order to avoid bothering anyone.
I hope that my readers are filled with patience and understanding.
