Micro-Transition

What do you mean that's not a word???

Last Friday I talked about transitioning, and since I hate to transition, I may just keep talking about it now that I'm on the topic.

Oh, wait. On Monday I talked about Anxiety. I guess I already transitioned.

And now I'm transitioning back ... to transitioning.

But today I also want to touch on how Hyper-focus, or perseverance, play a role in our issues with transitioning.

A Comment, And An Answer

Sometimes I reply ... at least I try to

So here's a write these posts, and often people comment on them. I try to answer them, but I'm a busy ADHD boy.

Lots of times they grab my attention and I write a response. But other times I don't even see them. You should know that there are editors at Psych Central, this is no kiddy-show set up. These people are professional.

But today,...

Here’s To A Long Life

No stress? Really?

Someone sent me a link to some click-bait site recently because the content was all about being me.

Don't do it!

I did not tell you why you should do it or under what circumstances it would be considered a good idea.

Look Into My Eyes

Observe ...

My friend, Jennie Friedman, an ADHD coach by trade and a good one I understand, has a website called SeeinADHD. I've written for it, I help edit it, and yes I'm somewhat affiliated with it (shameless promotional plug there), but what I'd like to draw your attention to is the name of the site.

See in ADHD refers to her assertion that if you look closely at the...

Gathering Wool

All wound up in imagination

When I was a lad, there were many times when I was required to sit still.

Now I can tell you that, as a person with ADHD for whom the capital 'H' actually is applicable, that wasn't easy.

But I'm not primarily hyperactive, nor am I primarily inattentive. I'm combined type.

And that has helped me ... somewhat.

I Hate Being Sick

Health Care for the distracted ...

There are some things that are universal. Whether you have ADHD or not, very few people like being sick.

I'll admit that there have been times when I've been under the weather and felt like I appreciated the excuse to take a break, but I've never really enjoyed being ill.

And I confess that being sick makes me appreciate things like slippers, sweaters, blankets, soup, and other things...
