Short story..my stepfather had little education, lived in a small town and was a farmer. He retired a millionaire. I observed him a lot and wondered what made him so successful. Besides hard work etc, he had curiosity about everything.
As a depressed person, sometimes I have curiosity about nothing. Stims help there. Also focus and as a mood brightener.
Also I'm a drummer but had not even looked at my drums in 10 years. When I started on Concerta, I ordered new heads, etc and I'm playing again. I've had trouble exercising because of a ligament problem in my left leg. So, I ordered a recumbent exercise bike(a decision I could never make)and I'm exercising.
And I'm curious. I listen to Ted Talks. I go to Google Scholar to read things and try to learn. I could go on.
On the other hand, I think more and more about trying to get off meds. I don't think that experiment would have a good outcome but I'd give almost anything to live without medication.
Life is good.
