It’s Good Friday, and since the one part of that is “Friday,” that means that it’s also post day for this blog.
And I’ve done all my other writing and work so this is all that’s left to do before I close up my office and start enjoying my “day off.”
But I’m a little bit stumped on what to write.
I swear I’ve written it all already. There’s nothing left to tell you. I’ve written some of it multiple times. I’m getting tired of it.
Heard that before …
I mean, you already know there are three main types of ADHD, inattentive, hyper-active, and combined type, right?
You know that no two of us are alike because of the broad spectrum of symptoms.
You know that all ADHD symptoms are common in everyone and that ADHD is a result of intensity and frequency, don’t you?
And then …
You also know about the various dichotomous instances of ADHD symptoms. You know how some of us are a mess while others are neat freaks and those two manifestations are from different tolerances of the same tendency to be distracted.
You know that we empathize so much that we often insult people by being too forward and personal.
… You know that we’re more likely to have bad oral health? You know we’re more likely to visit the emergency room? You know we’re more likely to speed, take chances, try less than advisable activities?
In short, were more likely to say something like, “Hey everybody, watch this!!!” and then do something we wish no one had seen us do.
You already know we’re more likely to be multiple years behind on our taxes, not all of us, but many of us.
You know we’re less likely to make an appointment because we know we’ll miss it, and that’s because we’re less likely to write down an appointment, less likely to find where we wrote it down in a timely fashion, and less likely to be ready in time to get to our appointments.
I’ve already told you …
We’re more likely to forget the important things and we’re more likely to have a million useless bits of information that we’ll never use floating around in our minds. (Did you know that scuttle means to put a hole in something and a butt was a small barrel that usually held fresh water on a ship so scuttlebutt is actually a nautical term meaning water fountain gossip? And did you know I forgot to pay my credit card bill last month?)
I could go on and on like this, but there really is nothing left to say about ADHD that I haven’t already told you.
But come back on Monday, I’ll have thought of something by then I’m sure.
In fact, my mind is already reeling with possibilities.
