[caption id="attachment_267" align="alignleft" width="246"] I’m so much cooler online … no, really.[/caption]

I have a new friend, that’s something I say a lot, isn’t it.

And of course, it’s a lie. How could I have made friends, I have ADHD. That means I say inappropriate things, forget appointments, show up late for meetings and dates and often leave the interactive part of me elsewhere while the part that’s present stares off into space.

Other times my mind is racing at the speed of light and my mouth is right behind it, drafting in the turbulence, waiting its chance to jump out in front and say words my blurred, high speed grey matter has not yet been able to check for stupidity.
