    I eas tested by a neuropsychologist. Found out I have ADD (which is what I expected) and also found out that the test shows what I don't have, like alzheimers. Plus the test can be used later in life as a benchmark if I start to show symptoms of other neurological problems, such as dementia. The real good part is I'm taking now Ritalin (for my ADD) and Buspar (for anxiety) and my fibro fog is pretty much gone, starting to sleep better (still have a ways to go there) and the problem with the old "fight or flight" response being permenantly on is pretty much over. One unexpected benefit is after 30yrs I quit drinking completely. The medicines help my brain produce enough dopomine and seratonin that I have no lomger have an urge to drink.

    Glad to hear you are getting some relief. The Klonopin helps my racing brain so I can sleep and it helps with sensory overload. I still need something for fatigue and inability to focus and remember. The Provigil was a bust for me.

    Keep us updated.

    Love, Mikie
