There will always be ups and downs in life. The important thing to remember is that through them all, we have the ability to remain steadfast in our faith, like an immovable anchor. Hope is this anchor of faith that makes the difficult easier and the good, really great. Always have faith. Always have hope.
Hi Readers! I just got home from a week long camping trip; and boy does it seem like I have a zillion things to do. I was so anxious to leave for my camping trip that I left my house in a disarray. So, now I’m home with camping mess to clean and house to clean. A real overwhelming treat for my fragile ADD brain. I will get my medication filled in a couple of days, maybe I’ll clean then. Or maybe I’ll throw in a load of towels and go ahead and unload the dishwasher….Urrgh! Maybe not.
I’m in a familiar place once again; the wheels are spinning, smoking even, and I still have a difficult time getting anything done. Anyone with ADD can relate, I’m sure. I try to think of a productive ways to attack my house-mess. One room at a time seems like the logical way to get things done, but that would require me to stay in one place for a period of time, and, unmedicated, I just cant do that.
Actually, I cannot believe I’m writing this post. As I said before, I will get my script of Vyvanse in a couple of days, I usually can only focus enough to write when I’m medicated. Matter of fact, I will be writing a new post soon. –on a subject I’m willing to share because I think it affects a lot of adult ADDers. Look for ‘The ADDiction, My Story’ coming soon.
People don’t make other people Happy… Happiness does!
People don’t make other people feel Love… Love does!
People don’t make other people Peaceful… Peace does!
I must possess these things before I can spread them to others… & even then, I can only help you find them inside of yourself.
I no longer believe that it’s your responsibility to make me Happy.
The goal for today: find Happiness, Love & Peace within myself… & then help others do the same!
Have a great day everybody!
The more research I try to do on my condition, the more confused I become. You see, I’m one of these self-diagnosers. Don’t get me wrong, my ADD diagnosis is valid, but as I read about other disorders that can mask or co-exhist with ADD, I fear I’m not carrying around enough labels.
Obsessive-compulsive disorder can mask or accompany ADD, here’s a short list…
Caffeinism (excessive coffee or soda drinking) -yeah, I have this!
Disorders of impulse control
…just to name a few.
Knowledge is power, knowing how you “tick” is key to maintaining a healthy mind, body, and life. Relationships can flourish instead of suffer, work can be more productive, and we can be more content playing the hand we were dealt.
