Overwhelmed With ADHD

Okay, I cleaned up a bit for the photo ...

I'm not good at titles. I didn't mean to imply that ADHD is overwhelming me, just that I am overwhelmed ... and I have ADHD.

I'm overwhelmed 'cause I'm doing my laundry. Ah, that's not right either. Laundry isn't overwhelming me, but I'm doing my laundry and I've been made aware that...

ADHD Fugue

You're getting sleepy, very sleepy ...

Is there a state of mind that occurs for ADHDers that could be termed a fugue, or maybe a mini fugue? I think maybe there is, but I'm willing to set my reasoning out before the world and see what is made of it.

Get Your ADHD Priorities Straight

Decisions, decisions ...

Some things are obvious in life. If your home is on fire, do you stop to admire the flames or call 911? Duh!

Your forgiveness would help, and don't think I wouldn't appreciate it, but the truth...

ADHD, Unleashed And At Large

No question about where I'll be this weekend

This weekend, in my city, SummerFolk, will again take over Kelso Beach Park. One of the larger folk festivals, and certainly the largest in this area, this 30 year old event has grown to flavour the third weekend in August with music and crafts. The city takes on an ambiance eclectic as friendly talk and happy...

Road Rage, ADHD Style

There are some wild people out there

I've seen it. I've done it. I've laughed about it. I've done it again. It's just the way I am ... and the way others are, too.

And I think it has to do with having ADHD. It fits perfectly.

We aren't all the same. This may not apply to you. Because we all start out differently, and because we...
