I forgot to talk about the strain I use, I really haven't compared the different ones, but I'll make a comparison when I get the four strains I have ordered ;)

Hey Lacie, I'm sorry for your loss. My psych told me I have ADD, I also have a brain that refuses to switch off. I had an addiction to Xanax for 15 years but I managed to kick them about 4 years ago. I take quetiapine to sleep at night these days. I'm not going to recommend it because I really would rather using something natural. I'm not convinced that it isn't making me feel sleepy during the day. It's just been impossible for me to function properly without proper sleep, so I kind of rely on it for that reason. It also calms the chatter.
I'm not sure if Coca tea is legal over there? It's available in Australia and I find it very useful for ADD. I've just discovered it. It has something like 14 alkaloids including cocaine at about .25 percent. It's not the same as using cocaine and I would not ever condone it, but the tea is refreshing, motivating and energizing. Might work well in combination with Kratom? I'm about to find out lol, I'm expecting my Kratom order later this week. I'll let you know how I go.
B)Cheers!!

hey guys. I don't have add but I understand the warp speed brain chatter. used to be a bit of a night owl insomniac. now I go to bed early willingly most nights. but anywhoo..things that do help me wind down kava and phelledendron ( used for 6wk/ at a time regulated cholesterol and blood pressure. helps keep blood sugar stable too )

corydalis and Chinese skullcap help me for sleep/ PM pain if needed. rotate between them and sometimes add a touch of wild lettuce if needed. if I REALLY have go get to sleep early and im wound, its ok to take small doses of corydalis and skullcap together. only downside is then ill snore my husband out of bed lol..which is only sometimes bad haha.. hes done it to me many times!

Thank you for replying and it's nice to meet you. I just got home from my every 3 months Dr.appointment for my Ritalin refills. I take 20 mg.immediate-release 2 x's a day. I have been on that dose for a while now and it's time to go up. What strain helps you the most? I don't know of one ADHDer that does NOT have a comorbid condition. Mine's MDD or Major Depressive Disorder. I'm OCD about really only one thing. I make beaded jewelry and if a piece isn't perfect I tear it apart and redo it until it is.

There are a few things I've learned since I was here last. The strains that are thought to be stimulating, sometimes are, but can also put me to sleep. Each dose can be different for me even within the same strain/batch. Like a White MD may wake me up today, but make me sleepy tomorrow. So it's hard to plan.

The regular dose of Adrafinil is too stimulating for some so they take half the dose. Boy not me. A full capsule has zero effect on me. It takes 2. It does work well though when taken with my Ritalin. I don't take them together every day.

I'm interested in Nootropics also. There's lots of good info out there about what works well with ADHD. I had a death in my family a month ago and have been really busy dealing with the aftermath. So I haven't had the time to do nootropic research.

Do you know what sub type of ADHD you are? I'm ADHD-I mostly. That's inattentive. But I'm often combined which is Innatentive and hyper. My hyper's not physical,it's mental. I can lay there watching TV but my brains working at the speed of sound. Very annoying.

Yep, I have ADD. I take Ritalin but I get great relief using Kratom. I also have borderline personality disorder and a few other fun things that go along with it. Kratom is a bit of a panacea for my overall well being, they'll have to lock me up if they want to stop me using this fabulous herb :P

hanks for letting me vent. Is it any wonder that I like to be in my room? My Black Bali order is at the post office waiting to be picked up. Unfortunately, I live in an area that's suffering the effects of Winter Storm Finley. It's snowed here for two days and I can't get the car up the driveway. I'm hoping to get there tomorrow. Thanks for the warning Don. I will take a small starter dose and see. I took some White Riau from FF today and fell asleep.

And Babel-thanks for the info on Adrafinil. It's also at the P.O. I'm pretty tolerant of stimulants but will take 1/2 dose and see.

Thanks you all for being here for me. When things are tense and stressful my Executive Functions Dysfunction makes it all that much worse. I'll explain what that is next time. Time to go make dinner

Lacie,
You better be careful with that black bali. I know the Dark Bent I have knocks me out at my normal dose. You should try a half or quarter dose to make sure you don't lose part of a day to unintended sleep. :ohmy::lol:

I take only one third/one ninth of the regular dose range of Adrafinil, and I only take it once a day, shortly after getting up. I take a lot of other supplements, some of which work towards staying calm, so I think a full dose on its own would really have me up all night, same as it did the first time I took it using a full dose.

The powder isn't much cheaper than the capsules so I just open them up and take a third out. It has filler, so I allow for that. A 300 mg. capsule has about 480 mg. of product in it, so I weigh out 160 mg. each time, then close up the capsule, unless it's the final part.

How is everyone? I'm not doing badly. I took 2 tsp.'s (I don't do grams, but have a conversion chart) of Super Green from FF. It's somewhat stimulating, which is good but is helping with wanting to get something done. I'm making mom a pink and white necklace and bracelet with Swarovski crystals and other beads. It took me a while to decide on the final design. Now I just have to make it. Time-consuming but I WANT to do it.

When I'm depressed creativity's the first thing that goes. I do my beading on my bed. I have 140 of those Command nonstick hooks on my walls. Each hook has between 2-8 strands of beds hanging. I've several 24 compartment containers filled with Jewelry making supplies, including 1000''s and 1000's of Swarovski crystals. My room looks like I live in a bead shop and I love it.

Michelle- I completely understand not testing for the genes. I only have one ovary anyway. Years ago I had a spot on my ovary and they feared cancer. I didn't have it but had ovary removed anyway. It turned out to be a stitch from having my tubes tied. I believe that when you have something in your baody that doesn't belong that it'll develop into cancer or something equally bad. Linda's cancer started in her right ovary also. I can't afford surgery so if I do have the gene I'd just be checked periodically. My Dr.suggested being tested.

Laurie- Oh boy. We are sisters in a parallel universe!! I have stuff I want to post but want to work on the jewelry before I'm no longer inspired. Thanks for sharing your story. I'm so sorry for the pain you've suffered.

Don- I know right? 83 years. They're my favorite relatives. The night you told me about the 'bent',I went to their site. They didn't have any so I ordered Black Bali. Should be here tomorrow and I'm anxious to try it.

I wouldn't have stayed married to either one,but they fit each other. Mom has an uncle whose still alive at 102. He's in great shape.Unfortunately,his wife passed in June at 100. They' were married 83 years!! Theirs was close to a perfect marriage. I need to call and see how he's doing. He's still quite with it. Thanks for your kind words


Married 83 years :ohmy:
I can't imagine living that long. :woohoo:
But the kratom certainly makes it easier now that the headaches and body aches have been reduced substantially. :-bd

I checked the vendor's web site and the Dark Bent was gone. :(
I did try some more of the Dark Bent last night but unfortuantely for me I mixed 100mg of it with 1g of red tamiang. I was hoping I would get a nice restful sleep from it. Wrong. I was up till 3am this morning.:dry:
