Dear mozzie 

Please don’t bite me, ok? I’m not that tasty, really, and my blood is fairly cold for a human. Literally, not figuratively because I make up it in that department. That’s of no use to you though. 

I understand that you just love the taste of human blood but I don’t love to be your source.


I just slapped a mosquito with my bare hand on my thigh. That’s either a first or a second in a lifetime!

First speeding ticket!

First speeding ticket!

 I’m such a speed freak! A real lead foot I am! 

I got a ticket for 53 euros for going 80km/h where I was only allowed 70…. Subtracting correction (no idea for what, but if it lowers my fine I am game) that means I went a full 7km/h too fast. 

Yup. Real dangerous. 

The police took a nice pic of my car’s boot(y) without me noticing. 

My main concern is that I drive 80 when I get the chance and I hope I won’t be getting a fine for every work day between the 8th of June and last Friday!

No longer tolerating meds?

No longer tolerating meds?

A brief history.

I started taking Ritalin and then Concerta about 3 years ago, maybe a bit more. I remember how calm I became the first time I took it. I then eventually ended up taking 72mg of Concerta each morning, and 54 in the afternoon.

Last year, when I went off the Pill and we opted for non-hormonal contraception instead… or after I settled into a more natural rhythm? I suddenly found myself not tolerating the higher doses as well. I went down to 54mg and 36mg and sometimes used Ritalin when I didn’t want to use another dose of Concerta. I ended up using 36mg and 18mg for a few months.

And now I’m having some trouble staying focused on my work but I’m too scared to take half a tablet of Ritalin (which I eventually just did) because it feels too strong now. I don’t know why that is.

A few weeks ago I started swimming on Saturday mornings, in order to get fitter. Because I wanted to see how it goes without… and because I exercise better without meds, I didn’t take anything on Saturdays. I also started taking vitamin supplements.

About a week and a half ago I felt really awful on Friday, figured it must be the allergies. I felt better in the evening and on my med-free Saturday. I skipped Sunday too. I only took the 18mg on Monday because I had this idea that I want to see how it goes. I had some trouble with it on Monday, my mind being too busy.

Took my normal dose on Tuesday and it felt horrible.

Took 18mg on Wednesday and it felt half as horrible, but still found myself waiting for it to wear off so I can feel normal again.

And that was the last time I took it, until now.

I was hyper, but pretty focused and such, for my doing at least.

I don’t know why.

Perhaps I’m just in a good spot ‘naturally’. I mean, I’m having trouble studying but that’s about the hardest thing for me to do!!
