If for social reasons - never change yourself
Aug 30, 2015 - 8:36 PM - by Ocyan
It's quiet funny how I adapt to people. A girl once told me I was as 'f*ed up' as her. I believed her. I mean, everyone has their scars - it's life, it's beautiful, complex and provides perspectives/insight.
So I talk with a girl since yesterday, a lot more adult, same age (26) and get the impression she is on the emotional side, tad too much for my taste, but I appreciate how her heart is every time agreeing with mine. So I pursue the conversation, test the waters.

Thinking of creating a reward system for good school habits - ideas?
Aug 30, 2015 - 2:15 PM - by tillamook7
Hi,
My very clever ADD son is 14 and going into grade 9. Last year he had problems with organizing all the loose papers that came home with him and following through with homework. Midpoint through the year he was allowed to switch into a support class where he could do his homework with supervision.

I noticed that paper organization and follow through were still an issue and it affected his marks.

We had a frank discussion about motivation and he... [Read More]

6 months of relaxation and slow life improvement
Aug 30, 2015 - 12:32 PM - by Jacksper
So, now that my studies are done I have a lot of spare time and I feel space coming in my head. I have decided to spend at least the next 6 months to find balance and slowly improving my life, step-by-step.

I think that taking this slow is very important, because:
  1. I (am learning to) accept myself as I am now and there is no need to (quickly) change myself. If I set too many goals I will eventually focus too much of an

Is ADHD Really a Disorder?
Aug 29, 2015 - 1:12 PM - by PoppnNSailinMan
Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder is described as a "disorder" and Merriam-Webster defines a "disorder" as "a physical or mental condition that is not normal or healthy" or as "an abnormal physical or mental condition."

The word "abnormal," of course, does not just mean that it deviates from what is usual or average, but does so, as one dictionary says, "typically in a way that is undesirable or worrying."

Do people with ADHD really have something that is... [Read More]
