ADHD & Addictions

What's your addiction?

I'm trying to figure out why so many of us have addiction issues.

Okay, I'm not a scientist, not a doctor of medicine or a researcher. That's all true.

But I am trying to figure out what goes on inside my head that makes it so easy for me to become addicted to things.

And I may have figured it out. Well, partly.

Nuclear Health

Do it!

Listen, my local power generation corporation, Bruce Power, is up to something. And it has to do with mental health. It really does. I swear!

I mean, I have issues with nuclear power generation. For starters, everyone is quibbling about them burying coveralls and booties in a deep geological repository near the shore of Lake Huron, and no one is asking the tough questions, like ... "Where are the...

Between The Goose And The Gander

Offering to beat me ...

There's so much dichotomy involved in having ADHD that it is often hard to explain to people how disruptive it is to one's life.

I mean, we walk, we talk, we go to the supermarket and the gym and the local pub and the park, we work and play and socialize and are, in every way, the picture of typical humanity ... at a glance.

But when you look...

ADHD and Can’t Make Coffee

How long has that been sitting there?

Ha. That's just not true. Of course I can make coffee. I make great coffee.

And my coffee goes great with donuts that I get from the grocery store in the next little town up the coast from here.

Or, I could bake some banana bread. I make great banana bread. I also make a really good lemon - poppy seed loaf. And there's a few other things...

A sticky situation

Yep, that's an old plate all right ...

In Ontario, Canada, we get license plates to put on our vehicles. The plate represents the relationship between the vehicle and its owner. A new vehicle or a new owner require a new set of plates.

But to maintain accurate records, the plates/owner registration must be renewed every year. Rather than issuing new plates, (like they did as late as in the 1970's, they now...

Always Late For Something

A song in the air ...

A few years ago I wrote what would turn out to be one of my favorite songs. It was called Chickadee and it was about a friend who had ADHD.

She became "Not my friend" before I finished writing the song, but the song, in my humble opinion, was too nice a thing to visit the bitterness that that hurt brought me, so I finished writing it by...

Schrödinger’s Notes

Famous note pad?

Well, I've done it. I've really lodged myself in to a predicament now.

Those of you who are following along may, at this point, be wondering what I'm talking about. You may be saying to yourself, "Is he referring to having promised holiday content and not delivered?"

Or you might be saying, "Oh, oh, has something gone wrong with the sale of the house? Like, maybe it's going ahead and he's realizing...

Talk Much?

Go with your strength?

Okay, I admit it. I can be a bit verbose, chatty, long winded. I'm Garrulous. Rambling. Wordy. You know, I tend to talk too much.

I'm reassured, though, by the fact that I never stay on one subject long enough to bore anyone.

At least I don't think I bore anyone. I've never been told I do. I've never really been told much of anything, once I get talking. That's why...

Two Groups

There are three groups of people in this world

There are two kinds of people in this world. Those who divide the worlds population into groups, and those who don't.

Obviously, I am in the first group.

There are many other criteria for dividing up the population, gender, skin pigment, political leanings, and so on.

And without exception, the divisions should only be applied for the sake of statistical analysis. Never for application...

Three Ways To Work

On time, ahead of time, and ...

I live a life of ADHD and I do it rather well I think. I spent a lot of my life not knowing about ADHD and as such, I was certainly unaware that I had it.

Then along came the old diagnosis after a half century, and now I spend my days observing things I could have seen all my life but had no frame...
