I have been on Ritalin for a few years now, and it does help me with organization and focusing, though sometimes I wonder about other effects (social life, etc). I ask my parents because they have known me longer than anyone else. I ask the simple question: overall do I generally function better, worse, or about the same when on it?

They never give me a straight answer! Before I started taking it they always told me I needed to learn to relax because I never could sit still. My mother tells me now I am able to sit still whereas at one time I couldn't, and in the very next breath says that she always thought I did well without my medicine!!

My friends are the same way. I just don't get it, and I find it very frustrated.

Anyone experience this same thing?
