So about 6 months ago I was having a real hard time, anxiety, depression, etc... I went to my doc and he thought I had OCD, I went to therapy and it helped with the depression and anxiety. However my focus, organization, etc... was still awful. I wasn't responding to any of the trigger exercises with OCD, no anxiety there. So my therapist asked if I had ever been tested for ADD. He thought I hyperfocus, not obsess. I said no but my sis has it. Anyways long story short I did a computer test where I wasn't supposed to hit the X when it popped up and a questionarre thing. He said I have classic ADD, just not hyper though I fidget a lot. It makes sense because when I was a kid I would do things like have to stand up while taking tests. Anyways I went to my doc and he prescribed me 50 mg of vyvance. I took my first dose yesterday and it was crazy. I was really speedy, major dry mouth, grinding my teeth, it felt like a massive coke binge which I'm not proud to say I've done before. I'm an anxious person so I thought I was going to have a heart attack and I kept checking my pulse, and reading horror stories online. So I think my anxiety made it worse than it really was. So today I took half a dose, I don't really feel any of the effects but am still worried about the heart attack. I'm a 23 year old guy whose blood pressure was 135/80 last time I was at the doc so I know I'm being crazy. Anyways I've heard if it makes you speedy you don't really have ADD? Do the side effects go away? Ok any help would be greatly appreciated. I think I can handle the half a pill though it doesn't help with focus as much as I would like.

I miss traveling with my husband. Has anyone found a specific site regarding cruising for widow/widowers or any sightseeing trips. Not interested in being with couples and kids,,,I realize a cruise ship will have a portion size of families and couples, but perhaps they also put together a part of the cruise ship for groups of widows/widowers????
