I wonder how common this feeling is. I was recently diagnosed and I started Vyvanse and everytime it kicks in I can’t even express what I feel, it’s…peace? I’ve never even had any type side effects or jitteriness from it. I can get things done, I don’t dread the boring tasks, my work doesn’t drive me nuts. All these things are often followed by guilt. I start to wonder if perhaps I didn’t even have ADHD and somehow I convinced myself and therefore convinced the doctor that I do have it and now I’m “doing drugs” to feel good.
I can only imagine that what you an I are feeling is what a person without ADHD feels like on a daily basis: they function well.
Maybe instead of thinking about the insulin thing, how about thinking of as needing to wear glasses? 🙂
