Re: The Education of Axel Heyst

Some thoughts. I center on money, but think this applies to all resources: 1. A successful retirement can include draw down of net worth. Temporarily, or even permanently. Especially if you are comfortable backstopping via social security or possible inheritance. It feels weird to watch that number ...

Re: What I Spend

This is very interesting thanks for sharing Scott. I’m curious - how are the tshirts and bag signaling? Merch from a popular ADHD youtuber. A couple things say "Try Different". Another says "Hello Brains", with pictures of relevant objects. Her book has been the single most usef...

Re: What I Spend

how did you manage to do well in a demanding tech executive job with both ADHD and autism? I didn't. As my peers made the transition to Director level, I burnt out and retired. My work life devolved to constant procrastination, followed by intense sprints of anxiety induced hyper focus. It was horr...

Re: The Education of Axel Heyst

What metric do you use for ecological impact, if moving away from COL? That's the reason I assumed WL6+ people still considered it.

Re: What I Spend

I'm leaning into mitigation strategies for my atypical wiring. I am good at using hyper focus, to introduce systems that bypass deficits. Today I focused on my Garmin, updating the watch face to go beyond heart rate: 1. Hyper focus - Move reminder graph, along with alerts. Break me out of ignoring, ...

Re: A Journey of Mindfulness--the Remaking of Life in Midstream.

I'm very interested to see what value you find from the service. Access to a Galleri test is one of the "exclusive" perks of my wife's concierge doctor. Pricing is similar. It's not something we've pursued, due to age. I think there's a time where it's worthwhile, if one has the resources....

Re: ADHD meds

Your problem is a little different, in that starting required facing novelty. Learning. Experimentation. The tools were literally in my car. The diagnostic steps - previously documented, for my car, on my phone. The fact that I didn't? I had reasons. I assumed the mechanic simply didn't reset the ti...

Re: A Journey of Mindfulness--the Remaking of Life in Midstream.

Have you looked into a concierge medicine service? A few years ago, my doctor moved to the MDVIP model. He then removed the middle man and went straight concierge. For about $2500 a year, you get the medicine 3.0 labs array. But also in person stuff. EKG, grip strength, balance on a force plate, etc...

Re: A Journey of Mindfulness--the Remaking of Life in Midstream.

Interesting you prioritize the LP(a) and homocysteine tests. My heart health concerns are low, so I haven't paid careful attention to what one should prioritize. I did a High Sensitivity CRP test this last go, only because all the books have talked about it. The result was boring. I have an ApoB tes...

If I was king, I'd make this part of the school curriculum. Technically it already is ... except it's dominated by a paradigm that's not aware of itself.

Re: ADHD meds

Can one do too much self-reflection / introspection... This is worth answering. IMO there's a gap in mental healthcare. It's hard to access. Especially if one is poor, or there's a "life just be that way" mindset. Unfortunately many in the Gen X and older generations grew up with the latt...

Re: ADHD meds

Saw the guy who ran my psych tests today. I asked why giftedness didn't come up. He said that's not typically a term used in his practice. When he's seen it used, it's more typically applied to children in a classroom setting. We also talked about the working memory test, where you relay back progre...

Re: A Journey of Mindfulness--the Remaking of Life in Midstream.

My first step in that path is to ask my doc to order fasting insulin as part of my pre-visit labs. If she's willing to do that I'll take that as her being open-minded enough to let me conduct my science experiment. And depending on what the numbers are (at last check my A1C was a tad high (although...

Re: A Journey of Mindfulness--the Remaking of Life in Midstream.

I am thinking about trying a weighted blanket - any recommendations on which one to try? Thanks! Two types. I ordered both from Target, anticipating easy returns. I'm still waiting on the 2nd. 1. Glass beads. Heavier. Warmer. Not machine washable, so you want one with a washable cover. I went with ...

Re: ADHD meds

Thought I'd note a couple of the strategies that have been working well for me: 1. Working memory and free recall memory issues. 1.1 Preparing for activities with a launch pad. Get everything to start my day ready, in one spot. 1.2 Visible point of proximity organization. IE - all my toothcare items...

Re: A Journey of Mindfulness--the Remaking of Life in Midstream.

Love the experimental approach to sleep quality and recovery. I wonder about meditation or zone 2 exercise for improving resilience score. If it's based upon HRV, that's often looking for more parasympathetic promoting activity in your day. For sleep - I am currently trying a weighted blanket. Nothi...

Re: ADHD meds

Currently looking for a doctor who can prescribe... That was a recent discovery for me. Stimulants are a controlled substance. Doctors may be reluctant to prescribe them. Since my path started with feeling tired, it was an idea I raised to my doctor. Especially after being told I was depressed. Low...
