Old

Letting.

Posted 12-11-12 at 05:54 AM by ElleGazelle
After many in and out weeks of learning about ADHD, I think I am finally starting to understand both the negative and positive aspects of this condition.
Many times I am frustrated with the fact that upon entering a room I am automatically participating in all of the conversations happening, all at once. Perhaps the best equivalent to this would be 20 different blaring radio channels that have the same frequency, loudness and are located in a circle around you.

What if they made an artificial ADHD brain?

Posted 11-30-12 at 12:08 PM by KCTang (Adapting to ADHD)
I just read a neat article on how the University of Waterloo (Canada, represent!) has created 'the most realistic human brain'.

The model is generated by 2.5 million simulated neurons. And LOTS of computing power.

It even struggles to remember more numbers than its working memory can fit...

So... what if we lowered its' working memory to ADHD levels... could we perform tests of our own?

Look at Me

Posted 11-03-12 at 02:29 AM by KCTang (Adapting to ADHD)
Going through some old stuff as I'm packing to move... found this poem I wrote in '08...

Look at Me

You took a look at me

Scanning from my head to feet

Leaving shame 'neath gaze's greet

My breath retained, our eyes then meet

There is nothing but defeat

Are you meaning this conceit?


It was more than just a look you took from me.

The Martyr

Posted 11-01-12 at 11:54 AM by KCTang (Adapting to ADHD)
My heart is dying as I see pain
What worst could happen happens again
Beautiful soul mired by endless drain
Of selfish souls, siphon without abstain

That bleeding heart who could care less
Of how much there must sacrifice
To save the soul of another's life

Yet friends around all understand
Some undeserved come open hand
Fairly enough, they get a chance
But twice and thrice 'come endless dance

Tis...

KC's Quick Tips - rewiring my brain

Posted 10-23-12 at 11:35 AM by KCTang (Adapting to ADHD)
Whenever I find myself in the right mood and right frame of mind...

I imagine my brain cells re-firing their signals to reinforce that feeling, the wiring...

Through good times and bad, it helps me stay strong, solid. And sometimes pulls me out of slumps when I remember the feeling.
