This is an extremely long story, but I'll try to keep it concise. Basically, 18 months ago, I was doing 55 mph in a 50 mph zone. A few hours prior (4-5), I had taken the prescribed amount of Adderall and Xanax prescribed to me by my psychiatrist. In addition, my doctor, pharmacist, and pill bottle all say that it's safe to drive on these medications once you know how they effect you. Since the initial arrest, my attorney has managed to convince the prosecutor to drop the DUI charges and pursue a deferred prosecution due to mental illness instead. However, in order to get this expunged from my record, I have to attend group/individual therapy 4x weekly, and I really hate having to jump through all the hoops. I'm considering going for a Neg I, because I want a life outside of therapy, etc.
