    I fall asleep at the wheel

    while driving sometimes and wake a few seconds later, I fall asleep on break at work while sitting, if I am bored, I get overly drowsy. I really must study up on this condition better and monitor my condition better as well.

    Researching Adderall For Weight Loss Made Me Question My Reality.........
