Re: Finally had my pdoc appt and was prescribed Provigil
I am really glad you are feeling better. I know how much it sucks to fall asleep in class and then to try to play catch up from not only all the days you miss from being ill, but also the days where you were sleeping and weren't paying attention.
I think the pro con list is a good idea, and I'm happy you did it. Weigh your options. How far into the semester are you? Do you think you can tough it out? Have you thought about final exams? Will they stress you out too much?
I don't know about you, but I've found that hospitals make short term fixes, not long term ones. They keep you safe, but don't really do anything for after you are safe but still not happy (or too happy). If you really think you need a hospitalization go for it, but don't go because you feel like you have to because your doc recommeded it.
Above all, do what you think you need to do.
Best of luck and let us know the dealio!
