Three-ish weeks on ADHD medication, and I feel a little like I have developed a super-power. A few evenings ago, I was attempting to have a conversation with someone soft-spoken while his TV blasted a talking-head news program only a few feet away. In the past the two streams of competing sound would have sent my brain bouncing back-and-forth like a pinball, but I found that I could follow him easily, and even recall what I was told in detail later. I think this is probably an ability most people take for granted. The feelings of being "out of sync" with everyone around me have slowly faded, and I certainly feel more present and engaged, generally. I am being mindful of creating "good" habits while I am medicated, that will hopefully carry-over at least somewhat to the times when I am not. The consuming sense of impatience and urgency that I experienced when hyperfocused on something is fading, as well.

I was apprehensive about the loss of hyperfocus, but the increase in day-to-day productivity, and time not lost to disorganization more than makes up for it. Now that my office is clean (I was excited to show before and after pics to my therapist!), next is my convention prep for this year, then finish getting my financials in order. I have continued to be on-time to things, and not missed a single gym day this month, in spite of coming down with another cold.

I am not sure if this is "being normal," but I like it.

MMPI Results

In the midst of sleep-deprived, last-minute preparations for Free Comic Book Day and MSP Springcon 2019 today, I was finally able to sit down and discuss the results of my MMPI test with my therapist. Nothing really surprising there. It was fairly in-line with my own self-assessments and existing efforts.

The therapist initially attempted to cushion? the results a bit, I suppose, but I told her that these conclusions seemed accurate to me. She replied along the lines of, "Having interpreted thousands of MMPI results, I honestly expected yours to be worse." And we both laughed a little. She also told me much later on that I seem surprisingly well-adjusted, given many of the situations I have been/lived through. I attribute it to a lifetime of service-oriented jobs.
