See what I did there? 😏 Well…… IF you’ve been following along with my blog, you might remember my recent descent into utter confusion and chaos. Being bounced around from one “professional” to another while resulting in nothing more than exponential unanswered questions, has been less than productive. However despite my nagging feeling of… Read More False negatives and other positive certainties…..
I can’t be the moon so I’ll be a star Out in the distance Not too very far I’ll be around Now and again If the moon goes dark I’ll be there, my friend Lighting your path Until you need me again Whenever it’s dark You can call on me I’m never too far But… Read More A poem (aka passive aggressive blog post)
It has been brought to my attention, over and over and over again (thanks to my two sweet little boogers), that tomorrow is my birthday. Somehow, as the day has gotten closer, I’ve managed to repeatedly let it slip my mind. These kids won’t let me forget though….no matter how hard I try. “Tomorrow is… Read More Parties, presents, cake! (Just kidding you’re over 30)
Ugh. I can’t think of any other way to start this post. If you have ADHD you most likely understand from the title alone…. We break stuff. A lot. Physically. Emotionally. Mentally. That stupid bull; it never sits still. There’s always something to break. There’s always something to question, challenge, move on from… Once one… Read More ADHD: the “bull” in the China shop
Bare with me. You’re probably reading this title thinking, “what the hell is she talking about? My anxiety disorder has brought me nothing but misery, crippling fear (that no one seems to understand), and disappointment in my life. An AWARD??! NO.” You are right…kind of. Speaking as someone who knows all too well the insecurity,… Read More Anxiety: the underdog in the award show of life. (Wait, what?!)
TRIGGER ALERT~~~ Panic attacks, anxiety. This is a personal account of my struggles. There’s air. There’s air all around us. It should be so simple. As humans, we breathe. It’s instinct. If there is nothing physically preventing us from breathing, it just happens naturally, right? You breathe in, and you breathe out. In… and…out…… Read More I’m To the the person holding their breath…
Let me start this post by saying a big fat HELL no, to the title. I am pissed off. Not the normal “I’m so mad, I need a piece of chocolate,” but the “give me a baseball bat” kind of angry. Mental health. Mental. It has such an icky stigma. In reality though, every single… Read More Suck it up buttercup.
Grocery stores. I’m the worst at planning meals. Probably because the whole “planning” part bores me to tears. I usually wing it when I head to the store. I have my dry erase board on the fridge filled with things I randomly think we need. Blah blah blah. Anyway. The whole topic of grocery shopping… Read More A comparison of shopping carts with the “Quinoa folks”
Like what I did there? Two peas in a pod they are. When I can’t sit still, anxiety steps in. It tells me to stop. It tells me if I don’t sit still my world will come crashing down. It nags ever so efficiently, that if I don’t continue to analyze every single aspect of… Read More “Oh wow, that ADHD really compliments your anxiety.”
Hello readers!! Man, it’s been way too long. I’m sorry I haven’t updated this blog recently. It’s kind of been one of those things… I got REALLY pumped about creating a blog at first, but then the honeymoon phase wore off. That’s not to say that I want this blog to die. I love my… Read More Procrastinating in plain sight: How I made it 30 years with ADHD and didn’t know it.
