I woke up one morning, and took 20mg of Adderall, just because I love the feeling. No wonder it's called hippy crack - Intense euphoria, all from that little orange pill. The comedown sucks, though. My brain tells me 'how bout that!' and I just WANT to take more. The opportunity came, so I did. About a half hour after that, I got this intense body-rush. One thing I always liked about cannibis was the body rush part, so I was really excited - I didn't get that with 20mg! With the 20mg I get this euphoric feeling, but this was just.. wow. I can feel every muscle, every nerve, every hair, every tiny impulse that my body sends to my brain. And I can take those impulses and actually comprehend them! Then a huge, overwhelming headache overcame me, but two tylenol fixed that. I sat at the computer, playing Quake, and by this time it was midnight. WOAH! What happened! Time is FLYING.

I went and watched TV, and standing up brought this 'ready to do it' feeling to me. I went in and watched TV until about 2AM, and then my body went cold. My whole body was physically getting colder. It was harder to get moving. My body's fallen asleep on me!, I thought. So, that worried me. I went into my bedroom and tried to sleep, which was a restless mess. Over the night I got about 1 hour of sleep, and the next day my teeth were killing me - they were really sore. And I had a headache, again. More intense cravings for more. Body was tired, I was depressed and upset. I couldn't eat food. That night, I slept 14 hours.

I'm now OK, but I've picked up a slight cold. And I still want more. It burns in the back of my mind like it's in my subconscious. It's not that bad, not as bad as I've been told or read it is with crack, it can be ignored. But it's definatley there. Overall, an OK experience, if I can avoid the headache. I love the feeling of euphoria, and the focusedness I get, and especially the energy I get. But only if I have the energy to use in the first place. The comedown is a bitch, but it wasn't a crash for me. Maybe trying to sleep helps.
