Idk, did anyone ever ask why??? I've been dealing with head traumas since I got hit by a car and knocked out in grade school and several TBIs after that, and I know for myself, I would use a little bit of speed every day because helped me focus and give me energy-coffee is a must, but the tbi s always made me sooo tired! Exercise and eat and sleep and medicate in the morning just to get through the day! But that's just me. I'm not a bad person, I don't steal, I don't take from anyone or fly off the handle, I just get tired!!! VERY tired !
