Happy Halloween! (for you, at least...)
I took my last methylphenidate (Concerta) Sunday morning at work and knew that I was in for trouble on Monday. Because it's such a controlled substance, my mom has to call it in to the clinic and wait a few days until they call her back that the prescription is ready. Then they have to see her ID to prove its her, and they close at like 5! So even though I warned her a week ahead of time that I was running low, she couldn't pick it up yet.
Monday morning I felt okay at first, eager for Halloween (I was a witch) but by 9:30 my eyesight was getting blurry and my focus was slipping. By 10:30 I was snappy and depressed, sleeping through classes and eventually by 4:00, crying over EVERYTHING. I felt so miserable and broken without my medicine, I can't believe one missed day could affect me so much. Thank goodness, mom saved the day and after she left the ER (she has MRSA under her skin, yuckk) she picked up her meds, mine, and was waiting with them when I got out of my college psychology class (that I completely slept through!).
But on a lighter note, I feel SO much better today :)
