How do I fix this?
Become and aristocrat and acquire a lot of free time to do the things you love, like reading.
I'm not kidding. As long as you're a wage salve you wont have the time nor the energy to focus to read.
Are you me?
When I started this job several months ago, I was able to still read a couple hours each night, but this has been reduced to a couple hours only a couple nights during the week for the past few weeks. I'm hoping it's just a result of the additional stress I've been under and will soon pass.
I already suffer from horrible insomnia, taking a nap makes it impossible for me to sleep more than a couple hours.
Adderall, senpai. Go to any psychiatrist and fake the symptoms of ADHD. You'll walk out with a prescription. Failing that, you can always go buy some illegally from a kid on any college campus.
It is safer since it is purer. But even if it wasn't, I would rather take it and get more accomplished during my youth than to potentially live longer. I'm not looking forward to old age and I might die before I get to that point anyway. At that point not taking adderall would have been the tragedy since I would die before the negative effects had a chance to hurt me.
I have thought the same as you lately, until
>Get off work
>Stressful as fuck day and have to meet people later in the evening
>Go home and immediately just sit and read
>Realize it's a form of meditation and chills me out
I may only get a chapter in, but I'm reading. Same for my writing. If I take my notebook or laptop to work with me and leave work with the intention of going straight to the nearest hipster death hole (read: Starbucks) to have dinner and write for an hour or so. And I always end up getting good work done, rather than if I go straight home and either fall asleep or sit around and do nothing and listen to my next door neighbor's toddler run back and forth until two in the morning.
Jesus, who the fuck is the guy between Ataturk and Sanic? He's the only one I can't name
Is he Rouhani or Khamenei? The black turban indicates Supreme Leader status, right? Is it one of the previous ones?

Stimulant neurotoxicity is a meme invented to keep the white man down.
Purported observation of it isn't much correlated with neuropsychological performance or subjective ratings of mood and behavior.
The neurotoxicity can hypothetically become substantial, but animal studies show this to only occur in super severe, super prolonged lifelong dosing. It doesn't really parallel human usage.
In fact, dosage over years given to clinical populations at therapeutic levels might actually improve aspects of cognitive function, in terms of tested performance and neuroanatomy.
