Progress Update

Posted in ADHD, Posts by Renee, Progress at 7:32 am by bloggingawayadhd

OK, well you may have noticed I haven’t posted much this week. There are 2 reasons for that:

  1. I have been super busy working towards a project deadline
  2. I haven’t been doing too well

I haven’t taken the time to exercise, so I haven’t been meeting those goals. Most days have been frantic and I haven’t taken my supplements all week, so I can’t tell you whether they’re helping. Despite all that, my self-assessment score for the week was only down slightly (to an 81 out of 160), so at least I’m not sliding backwards too much. I hope to get my act together in the coming week.

I am feeling particularly distractable at the moment, which is why I’m writing this, so I can feel like I’m accomplishing something.

If anyone is reading, please leave a comment! That may help motivate me to achieve my goals, and therefore be able to post more information about whether my “natural” remedies are helping, if I know someone out there is holding me accountable.

And just so this post isn’t all just blah, here is a link: http://community.livejournal.com/adults_add/

That is the livejournal community I visit when I’m procrastinating to know that there are other people out there doing the same thing for the same reason :)

    I’m reading! Though I’m totally procrastinating too.

    I’ve had a very up and down week myself.

    i’m reading, too! i wanna hear how the omegas are working. are they? and did you take them long enough before the GABA to be able to tell the difference between what they do and what the GABA is doing?

    i’m been feeling generally retarded (worse than usual) for about the past 2 weeks. i started taking prenatal vit’s because it’s what i have here (just in the past few days) and it’s a total bitch to remember, but i got out my little weekly pill organizer thingy to give it another chance. i also seem to have finally established a solid habit of eating some protein within an hour of getting up, it seems to help.

    your chart thingy is ambitious! i’m super impressed, i suck rocks at stuff like that (which is exactly why i should prolly be doing something like that).

    I haven’t taken either long enough or consistently enough to make any decisions on whether they help. I only took Omega-3s for about 2 weeks before I started taking the GABA, so I will only be able to report on the combined effect.
    It is tough to keep up with the charts, but knowing that people are watching on this site is motivation to do it once a day, though I have skipped a few days this week!
    Thanks for the note :)
