I’ve done some more research on the meds used to treat ADHD. And it turns out they increase norepinephrine and dopamine. I’m already on meds that increase both. What this means is there will be no Ritalin or Adderall in my life.
I’m kinda thrown into a pit of gloom over this news. I had dreams of treating the ADHD and achieving a sense of balance and normality in my life. A goal I’ve long been striving for. Instead I’m thrown into the realization that every brain chemical we can treat is being treated. There is nothing left. This is as good as I get. And while I could stand to be worse off, I could still stand to be a lot better. Despite the boost to norepinephrine and dopamine I’m still suffering near debilitating symptoms of ADHD. And there is no treatment left.
No wait, there is this. What this is is a auditory treatment for Autism, ADHD and other conditions. They have brought about amazing results for a lot of people. It’s also in the thousands of dollars for the 10 sessions needed. I don’t have that type of money lying around.
But really, is this as good as I get?

As a neuroscience student, I immediately found flaws in the design of AIT. Further research mentions that there were no significant results with the use of AIT. Furthermore, Autism spectrum disorders have currently been coded on a particular gene and spectrum that is actually a protein disorder- not chemicals associated with the other mentioned disorders that AIT supposedly treats. AIT is seemingly a waste of money and time. It is not federally nor scientifically supported in the US.
Just so you know.
Good to know. I'll stop saving my pennies. LOL
Seriously though, that makes me feel better about not being able to afford it.
Hey, now you can use your pennies for other things. :)
Yes. Like spicy chicken nuggets from Wendy's.
