Marie Claire: This Winter, Accessorize Your Wardrobe With Adderall

The cover of the December Marie Claire promises a lot but delivers little. Think you're going to find out what turns Jennifer Connelly on? Her cop-out interview is merely a two-page list of her likes, most likely taken off the "Interests" and "Activities" section on her Facebook page (assuming she has one). Expecting a comprehensive review of this year's issues concerning sexism? Psych! Here's a small paragraph and lots of pictures! There's also an article about taking ADD/ADHD drugs without a prescription to increase productivity that pretty much does everything but explicitly command you to take them. (Not surprisingly, the article fails to answer the question on the cover "Can popping a pill get you promoted?" Sigh.) In this installment of Cover Lies, find out what other empty promises Marie Claire has in store for us this month.

Okay, this is probably the wrong place to post this, but.....

It has always taken me more than twice as long to write papers than other people. I find that when I write them, I have to concentrate really hard to figure out what to write for any given sentence. Then after figuring it out, my brain is too exhausted and I have to stop and do something else. Then when I come back to the paper I put the sentence down, and that is also too much so I have to do something else. It's like every 3 minutes there is too much build up in my brain and it's too hard I must stop and come back.

I have a big paper I have to write and I just want to cry because I am so sick of this and it has gotten so much worse lately. I dread writing so much. It doesn't seem like my brain can handle it.

I wonder if this sounds like ADD to the people here who have it? Or maybe I'm just depressed...
