My first significant break from Concerta

Tomorrow will mark my first significant break from Concerta. I need a refill but my doctor, who I might change due to the inconvenience of traveling to her office, is out until Thursday. So I have to call that morning to ask when I can pick it up. Hopefully, that can be Thursday afternoon. Worst case is Friday afternoon, I suppose.

Tomorrow, I expect to feel tired. And I worry that I will feel especially moody. In one sense, the best case is that I don't feel any different. But, then, that would mean that the medication isn't working. So, I have to at least feel less focused. Or maybe I'll crave dopamine and want to skydive.

The one thing I can control, though, is sleep, and I'm sleeping early tonight to feel my natural best tomorrow and be somewhat productive.
