Rest in Peace

Posted 10-04-15 at 11:52 AM by zannie
My Dad died on August 7th 2015. He had bladder cancer for a while it looked as though he might get better but it went to his brain. He got raditation for that. But in the end none of these things were enough.

He was a good father. And i am most impressed by how much he changed over the years. He became much more open minded than when I was a teenager.

I will miss him. I wish him peace and much love wherever he may be. Rest in Peace Dad.

Imagine that there is a man who all his life wanted to write, but everytime he tries to write, it comes in bursts and then he falls into depressions and inactivity where years pass and he is not achieving any of his goals. For years, he is writing in his head, and towards his middle age, he starts to feel absolutely certain that inside of him lies a great writer who is stuck by something unknown!

Then the man finds out he has ADHD, and he gets really good comprehensive care and support...

the Queen syndrome

I have always felt that I suffered from the "Queen syndrome" which means, feeling priviledged enough to speak your mind freely, regardless of whether you actually offend anyone, and subjecting people to a particular scrutiny when they are in my presence, which can seem either of two ways: I sometimes seem very warm and personable, and very much interested in the person. Or I can come across as a bit too intense, perhaps in a searching way. This is the curse of my ancestors, I am certain!...

ADHD is the real scholar, the true independent scholar for life

Posted 05-09-15 at 05:36 PM by icarusinflames (My Haunted Mind)
[QUOTE]I think all students should get the opportunity to be active learners. Give them an opportunity to actually take control of the learning process and be driven by their interior monologues, their interior fantasies, and their interior daydreams. Allow the student to have some autonomy in that process and you can see them flourish.[/QUOTE]

That's some scholarly badasshery right there. Do it people! And let your children enjoy that kind of education even if it means living in...

imagination in overdrive

[QUOTE]In a way, you can actually conceptualize that people with ADHD have an overactive imagination as opposed to a learning disability.[/QUOTE]

Really now? That's interesting.
