Hey Readers! I’m back! I’m sorry it has been so long since I’ve written. A lot has happened in my little world since my last post. And a lot is going on currently. I’ve finally maxed out on my dose of ADHD medicine, and it still isn’t lasting long enough. Time to move on to something different. And with everything going on, I really could use more focus!
I’ve been very pleased to see that my adult ADD (ADHD) Facebook page is growing at a steady rate. It’s getting the word out there about mental illness and adult ADHD, in particular. You can visit my page by clicking the link… MyAdultADDPage
Those of us with these ‘invisible’ issues tend to be the most isolated. We think that we are all alone and no one understands what we’re going through. Just because we don’t look sick, we’re treated as such. That’s just not fair. “It’s all in your head”, they say. “Why can’t you just snap out of it”, they ask. “Get your shit together”, they scold. That’s like demanding that a paraplegic get up from his wheelchair and miraculously walk! It’s just NOT gonna happen. Mental illness is a combination of biological and psychological factors. Chemical imbalances and non-existent neuro pathways cause chaos in the brain. Chaos that some folks live with on a day to day basis because they go undiagnosed. Diagnosis is key. Awareness is everything. Medication and therapy can help.
Sorry, for a moment there I thought I was writing on my page. lol Forgot where I was. See, right there, perfect example… ADHD at it’s finest, forgot where I was on the internet! I’m done. lol
