Anxiety and depression on Vyvanse

I recently started taking Vyvanse, it's been about a week. It really does make things easier to do. Previously I had taken it for about a week and everything was going well but then I started getting anxious and depressed. Quit it for a while, started it up again and the same thing is happening. Anybody else experienced...

I don't have similar symptoms but medication effects can really vary between people. It's best to talk to your medical provider to try other options or dosages.

For me, vyvanse really only gives me reduced appetite and slightly increased heart rate, though at higher doses it keeps me up at night no matter when I took it. Lower dose fixed that while remaining effective.

How do I set a default app in Android (12+) other than the option provided? ( lemmy.world )

I use a Pixel 6 Pro with Android 14 installed, and I cannot use Proton Mail instead of Gmail for email links. Whenever I click Proton Mail, Gmail is still the top option the next time I open the same email link. I don't want to reset app preferences, as I have too many notification and app usage settings set for my apps. Is...

I know on my Samsung at the top of the apps list in settings there's a "choose default apps" option, but I'm unsure if that's one of their changes or not. I'm pretty sure the functionality is in base Android.

Swipe typing used to be so good for me, but now I have to correct every third word, it feels like. And it keeps correcting to just the most random ass words. Why the hell would it correct "probably" to "pusillanimous"? I've tried multiple modern keyboards and they're all like this, I should download an old apk...

Hot damn, I thought it looked like a bunch of middle aged people doing enthusiastic but slightly off cosplay, but that's way more accurate.

Though not every fail state is going to show up. If you start seeing weird intermittent behaviour from a drive, for goodness sake find a way to back it up immediately.

My mum's new nuc started having some issues, SMART showed perfect drive health. After trying a few things to diagnose, I rebooted to run memtest and check for bad ram, and that was the last time it ever booted into windows. Controller or something on the nvme ssd died. Far too expensive to try and repair for data recovery. Thankfully had a... Somewhat recent backup. Not as recent as we would have liked.

Yeah, I'm lucky enough that mine is only really debilitating for study so I didn't have an issue not taking my meds for the trip. Really feel for you. :(

Ever since I was a child, I've loved stale rice crackers. Specifically, the stage of staleness where they're no longer super crunchy and have started going slightly rubbery (if they go past that, it's no longer good). Something about the texture/mouthfeel is great to me. I used to leave my rice crackers to age before eating them. I don't do it as much anymore because I still like them well enough crunchy and I don't have the patience for it.

Other than that, I do enjoy putting a salted cracker in a sweet sandwich (jam, nutella, lemon curd, etc) to add some nice crunch. Works just as well with savoury sandwiches, but I think that's less weird.

The redesign was garbage ux from the start and they ignored absolutely all feedback for years. It was fundamentally flawed from the very beginning and they buried their heads in the sand because they knew most people would still use it.

Most people seemed to use the official app anyway, which is even worse, so I don't see many people changing over this. I was one of the people who said when old Reddit was gone so was I, I just didn't expect them to do something worse before that time came.

Honestly I kind of like that lemmy has less content at the moment. When I've seen everything I'm interested in I close it and do something else, rather than doing nothing but scroll.

Though I do miss the long format text stuff a bit.

I would consider selling something like a soundtrack acceptable but no game content dlc, absolutely.

I've said it for years on Reddit and I will continue saying it here on lemmy. I miss Pebble.

I use a galaxy watch 4 now but while it can do some more thing it still doesn't fully match the functionality of my pebble time. So many stupid software limitations that shouldn't exist.

If the battery hadn't degraded I'd still be using it.

I've looked at fossil multiple times and they've never matched the functionality I need. No current watches really do.

Yeah, I’m not even particularly into hololive besides very occasionally watching some highlight videos. The game is amazing. And free. I played the absolute hell out of it after giving it a shot, just like I did with vampire survivors.

I started a new playthrough when phantom liberty released and I feel like I’ve had more game-breaking bugs than I did at launch. The ones I had at launch were mostly cosmetic, animation bugs, t-posing, Jackie eating his noodles with chopsticks that left a clone of themselves in the box, etc. This time I had to reload saves because, for example, Jackie just didn’t get in my car at the start and so it never unlocked the controls so I was just stuck in a car forever.

That being said, the gameplay systems are massively improved, even if it still can be a bit buggy, and it’s well worth a play. I just need to wait for mods to update for 2.1.

What inconsequential or surprisingly good thing can I get from Aliexpress?

Im curious as I usually use the site very occasionally to get certain electronic parts or order from PCBway like I just picked up some cheap but infinitely better than stock gps antennas for my LoRa T beams and im about to get a set of also still cheap but much better than stock 915mhz antennas but i kinda wanna throw some other...

I got some nice keycaps when I was building my first mechanical keyboard. Aside from that… Soldering gear, 3D printer parts… Cat toys, preflashed smart bulbs (so I can use them completely locally with home assistant), magnets… And generally any time I see something on Amazon that clearly is just rebranded Chinese stuff, and I don’t need it quickly, I can find it on there for a fraction of the price.

Yeah, I use their OBS version since I had a few issues with OBS and the normal one. My cat likes to sleep on my computer and I needed another camera to point at her when streaming… And then I realised I didn’t need to buy one because I had old phones with good cameras in my desk drawer. Just got a cheap mount to hold my old xiaomi mi 9 SE. Looks fantastic, works well.

Does Marijuana Make Anybody Pass Out Like Me?

I’ve never been a big user, but as I’ve grown older, pot has made me pass out more than once. I took a drag off of a joint at a festival a few years ago and passed out and couldn’t be revived for 5-10 minutes. They said my blood pressure dropped dramatically. I’m wondering if this happens to anybody else

Starayo ,
@Starayo@lemmy.world avatar

Never used it myself, but my mother has told me when she was much younger she tried pot a few times and stopped because it just put her to sleep, and this was well before the strong strains we have today.

Was far more than just sleepy. She’d zonk out immediately.

Not a lie, have a good relationship with my mum. Still holds true when she had some in Amsterdam again recently. 😅

I backed it on kickstarter, and played it again recently. It’s pretty good now!

I mean, it was way better than what you describe for a LONG time, but it’s gone through so many updates now that it’s far better than it was even on launch.

I tried over 20 Steam Next demos so that you don't have to!

And I’ve rated them all below. I’m very glad Steam decided to do a big promotional event around them- it helped point me toward a lot of games I would have never tried/heard of otherwise. Some of the good ones might not be good the entire game, but they were at least good in the demo....

Absolutely adored robocop and cobalt core. Definitely picking up both of them. Robocop nailed everything that made the movie great, cobalt core oozed charm and had fun gameplay.

I had meant to try the thaumaturge but by the time I got around to it, next fest was over and I couldn’t play the demo anymore. These time limited demos are a really stupid idea. I’m way less likely to buy it now because those sorts of games are hit or miss for me.

If you look at it from a deterministic perspective, they had no choice but to post that.

I’m on vyvanse, and I’ll frequently forget to eat. Setting reminders or alarms really helps. I outsource a lot of my memory to my phone and smartwatch. Sometimes I will just have nothing but a couple of lattes and then notice it’s 10pm and I haven’t eaten a proper meal. At least theres energy there from the full cream milk, but still, not good…

Just don’t forget how effective the meds are, especially if you’re prone to depression. I once stopped taking them when I was majorly depressed, and sometime after that I was helping my dad at his workplace, digitising records for him. I found some of my old Ritalin (not expired yet) and decided to try it again, and the difference in how many records I got to was like night and day, it was seriously like 5× the amount. Since then I’ve bounced around a few different meds and dosages before recently settling on vyvanse, which has the strongest effect but least side effects of them all for me. Ritalin was probably the strongest but had the most unpleasant side effects for me.

SMS is not going anywhere on a global scale and removing SMS meant everyone I had convinced to install signal because it was a drop-in messaging replacement for SMS has immediately stopped using signal. It’s now completely DOA for anyone that isn’t a tech privacy evangelist.

I’m not American and it’s still widely used in my country.

Removal of SMS was a brain-dead move.

I was planning to change my sub recently with a VPN but then I realised I already have YouTube premium and YouTube music already has everything I listen to, so I just cancelled.

Nice of them to fully cement my decision.

Yeah, but I use YouTube a hell of a lot more, and also I don’t pay in USD.
