The third day on Casodex is an uneventful as the first two. I’m pretty confident I’ll do OK from here on out. The only time I ever had a problem with it, the problem surfaced within a couple days.
Yesterday was interesting. Saw the psychiatrist to renew my prescription to Adderall. (The drug is so abused is a class II drug that I can only get a thirty days at a time and I have to see a shrink as part of getting each 30 day supply.) Adderall is primarily used to treat ADHD and ADD and only secondarily used for depression. I mentioned to the shrink that I was surprised it was working so well for me given I have never had ADHD/ADD symptoms. I’ve always been able to concentrate and focus tightly. He asked if I ever “zoned out” while playing video games or writing computer code, meaning did I get totally absorbed. I told him I do get totally absorbed and used this ability extensively in studying while in school. Much to my surprise, that tight focus to the exclusion of everything else is one of the symptoms of ADHD/ADD. So I guess I have some variation of it. Probably 90% of the really good computer programmers I’ve met must have it too. Those guys were famous for descending into their own world when the hard core coding started.
