Strange reaction to Alcohol - hear me out!!
Jan 20, 2017 - 5:46 PM - by wizzam hazzam
Okay my first post and maybe a bit of a strange one, but I'm dying to find more info on this.

I get this very weird thing sometimes when I drink much more alcohol than I would care to admit, and wake up the next morning feeling very clear-headed and alert, sociable, focussed, and spontaneous. These are the only times when I have felt my ADHDi dx no longer fits, and I feel perfectly care-free and neurotypical. I've been to lectures in this state and readily absorbed complex... [Read More]

Analysis Paralysis!
Jan 20, 2017 - 12:46 PM - by Fraser_0762
As described on wiki: "Analysis paralysis or paralysis by analysis is the state of over-analyzing (or over-thinking) a situation so that a decision or action is never taken, in effect paralyzing the outcome. A decision can be treated as over-complicated, with too many detailed options, so that a choice is never made, rather than try something and change if a major problem arises.

Would this be classed as poor concentration, or a poor ability to prioritize what is really more important in that moment? Or am I overthinking this and it's really 2 things that manifest... [Read More]

Certain people you just can't listen to cause you don't want to
Jan 19, 2017 - 5:52 PM - by acdc01
I find I have more difficulties listening to certain people. It's like I just block them out cause I just don't like listening to them talk. It's not their volume, subject matter, monotone voice, etc. It's just that deep down inside, I don't want to listen to them so can't.

Anyone else like this?
