Got home from work after six and was able to have the family fed in minutes. WITH a toddler in my arms and a ravenous teenager standing over my shoulder!
So today I am a supermom. Well everyday I’m a supermom, we are all supermoms.
But I want to point something out. I did not take adderall today (I never do on the days I work) and I feel great today because I went to sleep at a decent hour last night. I also drank lots of water yesterday and ate too!
Commonly the horror stories of addymoms include zombies who stay up all night folding laundry, cannot drag themselves out of bed without a pill bottle in hand, and are screaming at everyone by the afternoon.
No bueno. You are killing yourselves mamas.
If you are going to take drugs be smart about it. You have to take care of yourself if you want to be your best self!
Most importantly, you must drink water and sleep! Like lots of glasses and lots of hours. I’m in bed by 10 most nights of the week and up around 5:30. I drink a glass of water upon rising and many many more throughout the day. Stimulants will only make you feel like a revved up pile of shit if you don’t actually have the fuel in your tank go at the speed of light. I have also learned to eat before I take it because you won’t feel like eating and your brain needs energy to run! You will make it through the morning, but you will feel like crap by the afternoon. If you are taking adderall to help you, remember adderall can only help as much as you help yourself. Take care of yourself like you take care of your family!
Until next time, addymom 😘
