The Blocked Road at the ADHD Intersection

The Blocked Road at the ADHD Intersection

This article is specifically for those who have been, or, are still on a road that seems blocked. Have you ever been so frustrated because no matter what you try, no matter what you do or how much you want something, there’s just nothing in the world that seems to work? You cannot get past a certain point. Doesn’t it seem the road is blocked? Actually, I believe the road is blocked, indeed. Have you ever felt like you are traveling through life with the emergency brake on? In other words no matter how hard you press on the accelerator or how fast you may be going, it just doesn’t seem like you are getting anywhere. It doesn’t have to do with accomplishments or successes, it just seems like everything and anything either doesn’t live up to expectations or just never touches the right buttons. We move on, backwards, forwards, […]

The End of having a Best Friend?

The End of having a Best Friend?

I found this pic, it may be a little too far off base, but I thought it was funny and relates. It’s all fun and games, until… Someone recently shared with me an article from the New York Times about the end of having a best friend. My first thought about this was “Are they crazy?” and my final thoughts on this subject are: “Are they absolutely, ridiculously, out of their minds?!?” I mean c’mon, have we come so far that we are back to burning supposed Witches at the stake? ‘But Jamie doesn’t have a best friend and her older sister does’… And the point is? Jamie will eventually find a best friend and confidant, no reason to try and equalize everything in the world to the point we are just being categorically controlling, manipulating and restrictive to natural growth. Kids can’t even go out to play as we […]

ADD is Real & Suprise Updates

ADD is Real & Suprise Updates

Remember the wonderful, helpful and sensitive video by a young lady talking about ADHD? Yes, that one! It captured our attention and exemplified for many of us, how we feel. The video is posted above, if you missed it. And if you enjoy the video, she’s joined us on our ADDer World ADHD Social Network, perhaps you would like to welcome her and/or comment on her video. Okay, I think I am done tinkering with the logo and site colors for a while on our ADHD Social Network. I say that, but you know I have ADD, so don’t count on it. However, I do feel I have finally aced the logo. Again, remember, I have ADD. You can tell me what you think here. New member, Jason, shares with us his very personal and revealing story. It’s touching and important, which is a good addition to uncovering ADD: Hi there! I’m […]

ADDers Have a Unique and Talented Way of Thinking

ADDers Have a Unique and Talented Way of Thinking

Adult ADHD can be Sexy? Really? We ADDers have a unique way of thinking things through. We have a rare way of putting things together, of finding similarities between things or ideas that at first seem dissimilar or at least unlikely to be joined as an interesting concept. When the ADDer demonstrates how two vastly different notions can be connected the result can illuminate the possiblility of a completely new idea. For ADDers being creative is more about the process of finding associations between things and ideas that come at them day to day at a frenetic pace in order to make sense of the fast paced life around them. ADDers are famous for thinking outside the box when they are asked for solutions to a problem or a new approach to an old idea or way of doing something. And yet, too often this wonderful trait to see, create and do things in unique new ways is disregarded in today’s […]

Is ADHD a Product of the Modern World?

Is ADHD a Product of the Modern World?

It’s not, but sometimes I think it is, at least partially. Maybe Leonardo da Vinci had ADHD, maybe Albert Einstein had it and maybe Genghis Khan had it too. I don’t know if they did, but if they did it didn’t stop them from reaching greatness and changing the world. When I think about it, I realize that they were special people and maybe they didn’t have ADHD, perhaps they were exactly what they were: extremely intelligent, had wonderful talents and they were especially innovative and creative. We remember and admire them for the great people they were, the great things they accomplished and yet, we do not always seriously consider their time and place in history, regarding pace. The time available to do something today is incomparable to the time that was available to do something only half a century ago, much less hundreds of years. What did you do today or just yesterday? How many […]

Aspire – Desire – Dreaming – Striving – for what?

Aspire – Desire – Dreaming – Striving – for what?

Do you sit alone in the dark wondering and dreaming? What are you striving for? For what do you aspire? Who are you anyway? Have you considered, deeply and thoughtfully, your mistakes and misfortunes? Have you thought about how you can change? Have you listened to the silence around you? What does it tell you? Take a moment to take measure, to take in how much you have strived and tried and the effort you have put forth to please and be everything you could possibly be. How much have you given? Oh, how much must you give? Everyday, you set forth to sail the seas of aspirations and yet try to ignore them for the simple fear of failure, because you will fail, you will never measure up. Will you indeed? It is not the accomplishments which are celebrated, but rather it is the failures that haunt and remind […]
