A Change In Plans

I had planned on documenting my recent attempt to deal with ADHD.  The first day was fine but I couldn't tell if anything was any different.  I did blog more often than I had all year but was that the Ritalin?  Well for now, we won't know.  I was laid off today.

For those of you who haven't had the pleasure, it's kind of like someone punching you in the stomach.  But unlike really getting punched in the stomach, you never really get your breath back.  In 5 hours, I had to pack up everything and say goodbye to 17 years of service.  And while I'm sure everyone who told me it's for the better is right, for now I feel completely stunned and more than a little scared.  So screw the ADHD.  I have bigger problems right now.

I'm sorry to hear that Mike. I know you're a very talented guy and will land somewhere good, but I'm sure it's not easy. Try to enjoy some of the free time.
