Boxes!!!
Feb 09, 2016 - 1:17 PM - by Free to Fly
I put feelings in boxes. Sometimes they never get opened, and sometimes they explode. Explosions are few and far between, especially as I arrive at "Don't Care" Only problem is I am not always sure what the correct feelings are, and actually appear compassionless. Not a problem for me, I am ok being alone most of the time, but does make for some weird social times. I usually catch the gaffes before I go further, thank you hyper-active brain.

Off Days - Could use Help

Anyone else find they have a double-stream going on inside?
Is this an ADHD thing?

In my heart of hearts, I know we are all lovely and adorable and able to enjoy life and moments of life.... and find that place of loveliness within, even while knowing I don't meet the standards of getting-on-with-things and getting-things-done according to the ideal.

Most of the time... a lot of the time... I remember how lovely we all are, including me and you and everyone... [Read More]

He said it's very common for ADHD individuals to suffer from depression, bipolar, anxiety, OCD, etc

I am being prescribed Vyvanse for ADHD and Lithium for depression and mania. I am however, a little skeptical. The reason i'm... [Read More]

How do you "unwind" and/or deal with feeling like you have a constant motor?
Feb 08, 2016 - 3:51 AM - by adhdseeker
Sorry if this a bit rantish/stream-of-consciousness.

Today I am very aware of the motor-like sense that propels me constantly— when I am on a “high” in particular (good mood), I like to be constantly on the move, exploring things and doing without a rest (if I am out and about). Anyway, now I am home and sort of trying to unwind. There is nothing I really dislike more than “forcing” myself to put on the breaks. I’d rather spin a... [Read More]

New Member- Need a kind "ear"
Feb 07, 2016 - 11:13 PM - by Jenn4444
Hi. I found this forum out of desperation tonight for someone to talk to. A bit about me: 3 kids- DS 13 ADHD, DS 11 ADHD, DD 8; DH-40 something. Work part-time outside the home. DS 11 has been in counseling for a year.

So this was my late afternoon: We have a chart and reward system where our kids earn 30 minutes of screen time for exhibiting certain positive behaviors and doing jobs around the house. They get a ticket which they can redeem for screen time. DS (11) had... [Read More]
