ADD anniversary-ish
Apr 23, 2017 - 8:23 PM - by fperkins33
When I'm almost one of the big-0 years, I might spend the whole year getting my age wrong. Older, not younger. Like I'm in a hurry.

For the last couple of weeks I've been thinking -- oh yeah, sometime end of april, it'll be 4 years since diagnosis. Considering it has been not-the-greatest of 4 years, I guess I've been making some progress, so to speak. Hating myself somewhat less, some

Let me warn you, while as an ADDER I need to learn ways to relax, enjoy the great outdoors, have spontaneous bouts of fun, if you think for one second, golf is the answer, you have likely gone completely out of your mind.

Apr 21, 2017 - 5:42 PM - by icantbelive93

There are times I feel smart and than there are times I feel really stupid. I know the answer is to just accept myself and my intelligence level, whatever that may be. It's just sooo hard.

Why do I keep getting in my own way?
Apr 21, 2017 - 3:12 PM - by WheresMyMind
I mean it just that way - if I could figure out WHY I keep getting in my own way...well, I must be doing it to satisfy something. Whatever that something is, if I knew what it was, maybe I could satisfy it another way - if it's an inner belief, I can change that. I just can't put a handle on it.

The daily struggle is "doing stuff", so keep that in mind while I start at the top.

Top level:
My highest goals, according to me, are:
- Get my business going
