Adapting to ADHD --- It isn't good or bad, it just is what it is

Is it Acceptable to Fail?

Posted 07-08-13 at 10:22 AM by KCTang (Adapting to ADHD)
Here's a trick question: How low are the standards you set for yourself?

Because I think some of us need to let ourselves set the bar lower.

=======================

One of the best --- and also hardest --- things I do for myself is look at my shoddy productivity and not just forgive, but come to terms that my genetics have predetermined a certain amount of failure.

Failure to motivate. Failure to comprehend instruction. Failure...

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.
