Adderall. It does what I think coffee does for neurotypicals.

I've had GAD. Social phobia is avoidant, while my experience of GAD was jackhammering thoughts, crying and handwringing. It might be an expression of bipolar for me.

Have you experienced GAD?

(The agoraphobia isn't completely terrible. Thanks.)
