…To Calm The Racing Mind

I just realized that I really enjoy photography. Looking at beautiful pictures seems to have a relaxing effect on me. My whirling ADD mind doesn’t respond to most things that are supposed to help you relax. I hope you also enjoy this beautiful sunset. Goodnightwpid-wp-1440815230112.jpeg

A Day Oceanside

In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “Today Was a Good Day.”

The Right Diagnosis

I have always known that getting an ADD diagnosis as an adult is not always an easy thing to do; but oh, so important. If you are a male child who cannot sit through dinner, you’re diagnosed immediately with having ADHD. But, if you’re a 20 or 30 something adult who’s life is still going nowhere and your relationships are failing, it must be something else.
I’ve had my ADD diagnosis for 12 years now but, was recently diagnosed as having bi-polar disorder (along with, possibly instead of ADD). I’ve been taking medications for both disorders with unfavorable side effects. I know myself, I live in this head of mine and I am sure as any doctor that my initial diagnosis of ADD is correct.
I have a new psyc now who agrees. The Bi-Polar diagnosis is wrong and I’m just severely ADD. Whew! I knew that all along.
Bottom line is, it is very important to be diagnosed correctly when dealing with psyc issues. The medications for these disorders are very powerful psycotropic drugs that can have serious emotional side effects and can make mental issues much worse.

Why

Your life results in the choices you make. Choose wisely!

Inspiration With Explanation

Why do we seem to WANT to believe that something or someone else has control of our lives?

Is it because it alleviates us from taking responsibility for our own problems?

If I’m in complete control of my life & I have a problem, I can’t blame anybody else… so I have a tendency to lie to myself & claim that it’s out of my hands.

Someone said that because they had head trauma, they have no control over their depression.

My brother had head trauma & is one of the happiest people I know.

The goal for today: personal responsibility!

Have a great day everybody!

Consistency– Or Lack There Of

“The most consistent thing about us ADDers is our inconsistency”–Unknown
I detest being so inconsistent, I cant stick with anything! I hate not being able to stick with anything for more than a moment. Even this blog, I get excited and write, then I don’t care and ignore it for a few days. I hate ADD! Even medicated my symptoms are (to me) severe. Bear with me as I try to refocus myself.

Faith & Focus

Inspiration With Explanation

When I fall short on my faith & focus, things don’t turn out Right.

From the most minute detail, to the biggest & most challenging aspects of daily life… faith & focus are vital.

And not only are faith & focus vital, but it is absolutely essential that I experience them in the present moment.

Yesterday’s faith & focus won’t help me today.

The goal for today: know that God will help me stay focused on the task at hand, if I will simply remember to ask & ask in full faith!

Have a great day everybody!
