ADD Mommy

So it's official. I have ADD. I have been putting off this diagnosis for years, because I have been more focused on my back/neck/spine/muscle/arm/hip/leg/foot issue(s). As part of my "When We Move" mission, I broke down and went to get a clinical diagnosis. The last four years have been a sea of pregnancy and breast feeding and those two things don't mix with the stimulants of an ADD treatment.
Or do they?
So.... I have been waiting all this time to begin treatment. Years and years. And my new doctor doesn't believe stimulants work in Adult ADD. Whaaa? Seriously, you say? He wants to put me on an anti-depressant! Effexor or Wellbutrin. Drugs that I could have been taking this ENTIRE TIME!!!!!! Granted, it's not "ideal" for your baby to breast feed while on either of these drugs, but I still COULD have.
I am still going to do a bit more research about those drugs and ADD, so if anyone can share info about those drugs and/or about Adult ADD please do!

Standing Still

I can feel the world moving, but I am standing still.
I need to get moving.
Get organized.
Get settled.
That day is coming.
I wish it could all happen in that day.

Weekend Recap

Logan hates Tiny Tee's (3-4 year old T-Ball training). Hates, hates, hates it. I started a post describing the insanity that is Tiny Tee's, but it will have to wait.

Hunter is cutting all his 1 year molars, is still have ear issues, and yacked ALL over me on Saturday. The kind that soaked through my bra and underwear.

The Scott Joplin Festival is little more than various piano players playing "The Entertainer" over and over again. Apparently, that and 52 old people equal a festival. The fact that EVERY business in town with a digital or changeable letter sign said, "Welcome Scott Joplin Festival Visitors!" I was expecting a slightly more festive atmosphere. I, of course, will be attending all future Scott Joplin Festivals.

Drama right now. Will add more later...
