Experience My ADHD

... speaks for itself ...

So you want to know what ADHD is like? I'll tell you what it's like. It's like ... but wait. Why should I tell you? If you want to know, you should just experience it.

And the best way to experience things (I've learned this from “cop shows”) is to go on a ride-along. The great part about this is you won't need a bullet...

ADHD Labels Are Bad, Right?

There's a label for that ...

Some people say labels are a bad thing. Sometimes I agree. But not always. Here's the deal, sometimes labels are bad.

If you label someone, you marginalize them. What does that mean? It means that they are being relegated to the outskirts, they are being set aside either because they are deemed to be not salvageable or they will be dealt...

ADHD, I Got This

But I'm still me ...

I do. I have ADHD. It isn't something you catch, so don't worry, I'm not contagious. On the other hand, if you already have it but are oblivious, close proximity to me might cause you to catch on.

See, I'm pretty aware of my disorder, pretty aware of the things it does to my life, the issues it causes, and yes, even the bonuses I can...

Why Am I Such A Smart Ass

What a smart ass looks like

I can't deny it. It's true. But the truth is that I think I could be worse. The number of times I hesitate and don't say the thing that leaps into my mind is actually rather high.

Three ADHD Things That Confuse

Or whatever ...

ADHD can be a confusing thing. People often have questions about conflicting particulars when it comes to this disorder.

Conflicting things such as “How can they focus on some things (TV shows, computer games) and be unable to focus on others (application forms, house tidying)?” seem to be of interest to people who want to understand ADHD.

That's a pretty common one actually. It's right up there with...

ADHD Summed Up In 9 Points

From where I sit ...

On Saturday morning I was sitting in a café chatting with my usual Saturday morning crowd. I haven't been hanging out with these folks forever. And the group is large and fluid, which is to say that the group is never the same from one Saturday to the next. People attend as often as they can, and no...

The Secret Doctors Don’t Want You To Know

Likely ...

I get a kick out of the schlock that passes for reason these days. Especially the schlock in advertisements. And those advertisements are quite invasive, they're everywhere.
They're there on all kinds of web sites. They're on sensational websites that are selling conspiracy theories, websites that are just trying to get you to click on the next picture, even relevant and valid sites offering...

ADHD, Making It Work

It all adds up ...

I didn't get inspired today. That happens. That's why it's ten o'clock at night and I'm sitting here just starting to write now.

But of course I do have something to write about. I was out on the town tonight, at an open mic. And I was in exactly the right place for me to be, even though I was there when I...
