Wow. You really put it in a fascinating perspective. As with you, I’ve had millions of “brilliant” ideas that I forgot to write down and therefore can never recall or recreate.
I also found that in the 30 days (or so) I took Ritalin, that I didn’t have any shortage of ideas, which was actually my biggest fear. It was more like I had been working as a floor trader for 40 years and suddenly I was retired with nothing to do. Like, yeah, I can finally relax, but I missed the unrelenting chaos and its crashing ideas.
If I can get back on a better insurance plan, I hope to find a good psychologist to work with on this. Since I’m already on a one-track mind, I may as well optimize my executive functions while I’m at it.
Thanks for your insight.
