Going undiagnosed for decades led me to develop my own coping mechanisms, one of which is *always* putting stuff in the same place. I only lose my keys, wallet, etc., if my ‘rituals’ are interrupted, and I end up putting them in a nonstandard spot. Then when I find them, I put them in the ‘official’ spot(s) again.
So I realized that my Ritalin pills are 10mg, not 5mg, so when it felt like too much last week, I had actually taken 20mg (my pre-Guanfacine dose)!
So the more tolerable dose was actually 10mg, which is what my doc had recommended.
I think I’m just gonna roll with this for a bit.
