Re: Confessional Shed - I'll keep a look-out

I am useless without my Adderall and I am afraid that it is the only reason that I have gotten anywhere in life. The me everyone else knows is the one on a really powerful drug. Without it, I am a useless angsty fuck-up. I can't even pay attention for two minutes in this lecture.
