Meds Can Help

July 19, 2022

I am in a creative line of work, graphic design, and I have always had what I have called my "art brain." Things just are not linear for me and my brain is always just kind of popping up in the middle of one thing or another. I have ideas, notes, reminders, and alarms just constantly there and the only way I've ever been able to focus on anything is by having a show/movie or music going beside my computer while I work. It keeps my "art brain" busy so I can do my work. Basically, I have a long list of coping mechanisms everywhere so that I can do the basic things I need to do everyday.

Honestly, I thought it was just how people are, truly. I hadn't really ever talked to anyone about it, I just have a busy schedule and so I felt like most people have all that popup happening. I was recently talking to a friend who was so excited to tell me about her ADHD medicine that was the first thing that ever worked for her. As she started talking about all the things it's been solving for her it was like a checklist for all the things I face on a daily basis. You guys, it was a lightbulb moment.

I talked to a doctor and have been trying some meds this month for the first time. It has been making a big difference. I can prioritize, am not distracted as often, and a lot of things are just clicking for me. It's been so good. I just wanted to share because it feels like a breath of fresh air to have a win in this area.

Glad the meds have helped so far. Has it affected your creative mind or process at all?

No. It's been almost a month and so far it's all been positive.

I'm happy things are looking up for you, man

You can kill a man, but you can't kill an idea.
