Oh Coffee, How Foolish of Me to Think I Could Live Without You!

OK, I may have been a little premature in celebrating the fact that I got a new prescription for Ritalin. Yes, I felt pretty decent the first day though I felt nothing like I did when I was on it a couple years ago. “Maybe I have just built a tolerance and need a higher dose?” I thought. So after I wrote that post the other day I doubled the dose, 10 mg and then, a few hours later, I took a third dose of 10 mg. It just did not seem to be doing what it should have; what it did the last time I was on it. The next day (yesterday) I started at 10 mg in the morning and then 15 mg at noon. Despite all that I was still crazy tired like any other day and decided there was no point in taking a third dose.
