If you’re in a crappy mood, keep it to yourself. Don’t be the dark cloud over everyones sunshine! Attempt to shed some of your bad attitude by feeling the warmth of someone close. Quit pushing them away or away they’ll stay. Be nice even if you don’t feel like it, kindness is contagious. And always remember the golden rule! Treat people with kindness and warmth. Respect is earned, be fair. And, above all, never judge anyone, your opinion is not their fate!
I don’t know how any one could get angry with an ADHD child or aduld for just being who they are; hyper (energetic), talks too much (enthusiastic), doesn’t listen (actually trying very hard to), unfocused (duh), never finishes anything (multi-tasking is hard), dumb (actually brilliant if we are taught how we learn). We just need some patients and understanding.
Gotta love ADHDers of all ages, we’re just so much fun to be around.
…in the way that out of seven people in my house, four of us have ADHD. That means 4 times the fun and unfocused chaos. We really are a fun group of folks when you get two or more of us together. The goofy jokes, that only “we” understand, the giggle fests and, unfortunately, the tears, too sometimes. You see, we can relate to each other like no one else can; kind of like an unspoken understanding. I call it some kind of “radar” that I have, I can usually pick out another ADDer just by talking to them for a few minutes. I’m drawn to these people, as I hope they are drawn to me. I believe from this understanding that we can be of emotional help to each other, support of some sort.
…even though I’m inconsistent as hell, I still seem get something down in this blog every now and then. A few new developments have arose since the last time I wrote; first of all, I’m seeking a new diagnosis. I truly believe there is more to me than meets the eye. My ADHD is a constant struggle, but I have other issues I haven’t dealt with in a healthy manner. Secondly, my third eldest son (he just turned 17) had been diagnosed with ADHD. That makes 2 of my 6 sons, so far, to be “just like mommy”. Much to their fathers’ dispair, I’m sure. Lol
All in all, things are peachy!
Love to all…
