> hmmm.. what does sensory input overload feel like?

Confusion, being overwhelmed.

> yeah? ... when i was in school i used to have my hearing checked every year -- and it always came out great -- because the teachers thought i couldn't hear them...

Funny you mention that. I had major audial comprehension problems until I started treating my ADD.

> hmmm... i thought that if non-understimulated people took ritalin they would just feel agitated and anxious (get the bad side effects) no?
> otherwise how do you know if you are taking enough?

Well, yeh, you're right, they do feel agitated and anxious. But often a bit euphoric and aroused too.

> ... thanks for answering my questions dude...

Likewise man.

> btw... do the effects of ritalin wear off, do you have to keep increasing the dose?

I think most peope with serious understimulation are very sensitive to stimulants. And that's a big defining factor. My friends can pop like five of my 5 mg ritalins and feel like they did some weak coke, but I think I would have a seizure. Anyway no, I have never had to up the dose or lose any effect, and it does increase any underlying anxiety a lot.

> cheers
