Day 242/365

I hate when I have to rely on Ritalin to get homework done.


I absolutely hate it.




I have challenged Myself to take 365 days of self portraits, this account is specifically for that purpose.

    You should never feel bad about taking prescribed meds that you need. Ever.

    And 1/30? :-)
  • Ry Pepper 7y

    I wish you didn't have to take it! I'm so glad I just missed that craze when I was a kid. They surely would have put me on it. And from I hear, they nearly did. Hang in there Todd.
    Discovered using FlickrFox. (?)

    I take 4 meds a night - BC, BP, antidepressant and sleeping pill. I can not function without any of them. So, I feel your pain...

    Seen in This Is Today! (?)
  • Jason 7y

    Great close up man... and if it gets you through what you need it too... can't be all bad!

    Seen in my contacts' photos. (?)
  • Chris Weiss 7y

    I have undiagnosed ADD too... I'm almost sure I have it.

    Never tried the Ritalin or Aderol thing. I hate synethic meds... I was on lexapro forever. Hows it work for you?
  • Stuart Mackenzie 7y

    doood I hate popping pills but like Haeretik said if gets you through the day and helps you function then it's all good! =D
  • Todd Page PRO 7y

    blows, right?

    I guess not. But I don't want to need them.

    and not unless you want 29 days of "I can whistle!" ;)

    Thanks Ry, much 'ppreciated.

    Almost done with school, and I'm hoping I wont need it for work.

    I'm sorry to hear that... big hugs.

    Thanks. I guess thats a point... it just makes me feel so... dependant.

    Ha. I have diagnosed ADHD.

    It speeds my mind up to its cracking point so I can only focus on one thing. And it does it well.

    Thanks mate... thats a fair point.

    I took Ritalin one Thanksgiving as a scientific experiment. My mother and I were curious. This was our finding:

    It makes me depressed and cry. For hours.

    All over my mash potatoes and turkey bits. All over the couch. And on the toilet.

    Best Thanksgiving ever.

    Seen on your photo stream. (?)
  • Robert Anthony Provost 7y

    Sounds like an episode of friends or something!

    I tried it once in college (I wasn't too smart then). It did nada for me either way. Not that I noticed.
  • Doug PRO 7y

    I quit my antidepressants and didn't miss them; I feel better now just knowing that I am not my depression and "reality" is not my depression, either.

    I love "We Come In From The North's" descritpion of taking Ritalin. I can just imagine what a festive Thanksgiving that must have been for the others. It should be in a movie somewhere.
  • Todd Page PRO 7y

    Hahahaha, well thats just the exact opposite reaction you want. thats really strange though, theres no reason for it to elicit that...

    I believe if you don't have ADHD your supposed to snort it for it to have an effect. I dunno, thats what the kids who offer to buy it from me say. (I don't sell)

    That would make for an intriguing scene.

    and congrats on conquering the meds.. I only need it very rarely, but its not quite something I can simply overcome unfortunately.

    Nice pic. I used it to illustrate a blog post on scientists and engineers taking Ritalin and Provigil for non-medical uses. I included a credit to you and a link to this page. You can see the post here:

    I love Ritalin.
  • jan bosscher 7y

    why do you think my hair is growing like this?
  • Todd Page PRO 7y

    Thanks very much for the credit and for using the photo... I gotta admit, I'm pretty psyched to be in a Wall Street Journal pubication of any kind.

    I'm guessing then, you don't need it? Or do you just not mind being dependent on something?

    haha, fair point.
  • Terrance Heath 7y

    Hey, if it weren't for Ritalin, I'd get no work done at all....
  • Todd Page PRO 7y

    To each their own....
