How Odyssey helps my neurodivergent brain

I've got a real personal story for you about overcoming heavy substance use ๐Ÿ„


I had a friend choose to take his life abruptly and quite out of character about a decade ago, and the theory was that his Adderall wasn't calibrated right for his brain chemistry.


As a neurodivergent person, I've flirted with the idea of taking any of the drugs commonly prescribed to those with attention struggles. But at the end of the day, I could never swallow the pill because I'd always think of my lost friend.


I'd end up pushing through life without assistance, causing myself a lot of stress and anxiety. Then, I'd self medicate to relax by having a drink or 3...


And then I'd abuse psychedelics in hopes of finding a new perspective to alleviate my neurodivergent habits, as if I was trying to turn myself into a neurotypical person (which is impossible). That left me with gut issues, debilitating me whenever stress would come up in the body.


So the cure was obviously to just embrace my weird brain, and by doing so, was able to accomplish some pretty incredible things ๐Ÿง ๐Ÿ’ช


Once I found @odysseyelixir, I felt a level of unparalleled focus and drive to complete one task at a time. I wish I had found it sooner, as it would've made quitting alcohol so much easier for that reason.


In order to find flow, you can't fight against the current, but instead, you find the tools necessary to help you go along with the RIGHT current ๐ŸŒŠ



Nowadays, if anyone ever mentions a temptation towards prescriptions to focus on function, I ask if they've ever tried adaptogens that are way less difficult on the body.


I'll be interviewing @odysseyelixir on an upcoming episode - let me know what questions you have for them so we can go deep ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ™
