In 2015, I Resolve To …

It's almost next year

So here it is. My last post of 2014. And this is the last day of 2014, New Year's Eve day.

And today is traditionally the day that New Year's Resolutions are made.

And boy aren't we good at making those resolutions. We don't typically wait until New Year's to make them, either. If I had a nickel for every time I said “I'll never do...

The ADHD Party

This is my kind of party ...

So, you want to throw a party. But you have ADHD. How do you make it succeed?

Good question. I may have the answer, but let's look at the logistics of the problem first, shall we?

Hey, You, The One With ADHD, Are You Happy?

Well? Are you?

I know, if you're like me, you have some problems. You have trials and you have stresses.

ADHD, It’s A Wonderful Life

You say ADHD is wonderful?

It's that time of year again. Wild spending on food and decorations and gifts for people to help celebrate whatever it is you and your family celebrate.

12 Things That ADHD Is To Me

Thinking thoughts of ADHD

Just what is ADHD? I know, there's a clinical definition. But writing it out here would likely take up the whole post.

There's examples of development shortfalls and effects that must persist, and situations that produce certain overwhelming feelings and ... well, it does go on.

But maybe there's a shorter way to say it. Or maybe it isn't shorter, but more understandable. Maybe it would...

I Can’t Seem To Hold Back Time With ADHD

It won't slow down ....

I whistle, in the dark.

I consciously look for the light places. I search for the good. I concentrate on the things I love.

And for the most part, I'm a positive person.

I make known my happy and cheerful thoughts and those thoughts come back to me from every corner of my world, magnified and multiplied by those who appreciate hearing good news in...
