What a weekend!

Calvin Klein XT underwear: XT must stand for Xtremely Tasty. OMFG. I got some of the low rise briefs and the "bike short" length boxer briefs. Black with blue accents. Both are made out of the nicest material I've found yet. It feels like lycra, but is a lot more absorbing, so it's more like cotton. Perfect fit. Expensive, but CK underwear has lasted longer than any other I've owned in terms of wear and tear in the washing machine.

Helped Alaskanwolf install his engine mount bushings ... got to show off some muscle strength breaking free some bolts for him. Ruh ruh ruh!

Aside from that, I hung out with Decca and had a rather relaxing time. We wandered around the mall for a while like a couple of big 'ol fags shopping.
A few days ago I stopped taking Wellbutrin XL. I've been on WB for years for ADD. I decided recently that it's benefits were outweighed with negative side effects, so it's gone cold turkey. Ohhh my head hurts. But. I don't feel particularly hostile in the evenings anymore as I did when I was taking it. So. That's verrry good. At the same time I upped the dose of Adderall XR to 30mg. Things seem pretty crystal clear. I'd wanted to try Dexedrine spanules but my doc was adament that I try adderall first. He gave me a small supply of 30mg non-xr pills just so I could try some varying combinations, but I'm not too keen on em already. Too speedy for daily use. I'll keep them for times when I'm particularly slow. XR seems to be teh roxx0r.

mmm nice, ive been meaning to get some nice underwear someday.

as far as the dexidren goes, as an add child myself, my parrents first started me on rittilan when i was in kindergarden, by the time i was in second grade, i was taking 60mg a day of dexidren. i really didnt like the way it made me feel. by 5th grade i was suppose to be taking 90mg a day, but, i had refused to take any more pills, and i would hide them under my tongue when made to take them at school, or throw them away in the morning when my mom gave them to me. im pretty sure its responsible for the way my heart and nervious system feels now.
all i have to say about that, im better off coping on my own than i am with the drugs. it wasent worth the side effects to me.
just be carefull with what your doing to your body, its nasty stuff.

Can we get _you_ into some nice underwear? :-)

As for meds... there is also a possibility that your brain chemistry shifts over time, and that the reasons you originally start on a particular med might not remain the same later on.

I'm sure Keman can attest to WBSR's effectiveness at one point in time.

WB SR was extremely useful.

I'll never forget the feeling of when I first started on it. The feelings were weird, it almost felt like I had a 1 second "buffer" with my interaction to the rest of the world. That is, I was one second ahead. So there was 'time' enough for me to think about what was going on around me, and decide what I wanted to say or do. My vocabulary suddenly expanded because I had "enough time" to realize that the words I was using in communication could be more colorful and intellectual if I wished. Basically everything wasn't just constantly blurted out all the time.

Unfortunately that faded over time, it became the norm. I switched to XL because it was 1 pill a day instead of 2, and it didn't make me feel agitated in varying amounts through the day. XL did however impact my evenings. I'm not the only person who noticed this, of the people I know who also take or have tried XL. It definitely puts the pressure on.

Right now I'm trying to alter my behavior as I've grown tired of being so stressed out. So I'm willing to give up some of the benefits of WB for some more sedate evenings. As Galen can probably attest from last night, I'm a whole lot easier going already.

As for the Dexedrine, Ritallin, and Adderall .. they're all stimulants. They all carry varying amounts of mood altering aspects. The health effects are what you make of them. Take a bunch of one and go run a marathon and lets see if your heart can keep up. It suppresses your appetite, so if you don't eat at all lets see what happens. If you use your head though, there are no long term side effects. It doesn't damage your heart, or make you lose weight all on it's own.
