I know what creative intensity and anxiety look like, I work in the music industry. I often wonder how much of the intensity and anxiety we see in TV news people can be understood as symptomatic of drug use. On the rare occasion I do watch TV news, I study the faces, some of which have an insane and weird expressions.
Yes adderall is passed around D.C. like candy, and many of your favorite journalists also do meth. https://t.co/ruZsT2Pbua— Mike Cernovich (@Cernovich) April 4, 2019
I have no idea whether this is wide spread or even true, but I have long stopped believing anything on the surface I hear from any commentator on TV. And I see a lot of disturbing things I do recognize.
Chronic Adderall abuse is marked by insomnia, irritability and personality changes. The most severe symptom of abuse is psychosis. Toxic symptoms from taking an overdose of Adderall can come at low doses.
Initial signs of an overdose include restlessness, confusion, hallucinations and panic. After this central stimulation, the patient will undergo fatigue, depression, and often cardiovascular and gastrointestinal symptoms....
You get stuff done, but it changes who you are as a person. It fucks with your head.Irritability, restlessness, hallucinations, panic.... Now here do you see that on TV news commentary these days? Whether these people are jacking themselves up with drugs or not, it's a bad idea to stare into these anxious faces and hearing the intense chatter of someone close to losing touch with reality because of failure to deal with the truth and their own inner hate.
I was watching one of those shows Sunday, I won't say which one, and they were talking about the the current impeachment circus. There was loud, fast talking; darting, over-wide eyes; and hand gestures so big that I paused the show and exclaimed that it looked like a wild late-night party. It's really unhealthy for people to be sitting relaxed and passive in their favorite chair, letting these weird humans who's opinion have becomes unmoored from fact, have their way with their minds.
