Try Pandora

I actually was telling fellow ADDer Anna about this site and thought others might think it was as cool as I do! It's completely free with very minimal advertising mess on it.

So if you listen to music a lot, try it! I love it and can't believe it isn't more well known.



The link is WWW.PANDORA.COM



Hard to explain what it is, may be easier just to go look at the site instead of reading my rambles trying to explain it. Basically it creates and tailors "radio stations" to… Continue

REVISED: Impulsiveness and The Frog *Warning* GRAPHIC IN NATURE

Many of us have done some pretty shocking/awkward/embarrassing/surprising things that we can truly thank our ADD for. Some of you will use this site as a means of finally expressing some of those things you closely guarded, never daring to tell anyone for fear of judgment and just the plain old human reaction. The rest of you will simply find comfort in reading those experiences of your fellow ADDers. Maybe you will even finally quit beating yourself up about your own. Or maybe you will just… Continue

Instead of twiddling your thumbs...

I got this in an email and it really was entertaining for me. I don't know if that should scare me or not......


This may ruin your life, turn you into an addict or at least drive you crazier than you already are!!

Impulsiveness and Self Harm, Siren's Top 6 Injuries

So is it common to be clumsy when you have ADD? I'm guessing so. Sounds good anyway. I mean, it just seems like that when I'm in my "dreamworld" while in motion or when I just don't think, that I end up hurting myself sometimes. And it cracks me up. I was reflecting on some of my awesome (not really) historical ADD moments that caused bodily harm to myself. Some were caused by being in la-la land. Some were caused be not being able control my impulsiveness. So instead of reliving them again, I… Continue

Impulsivness and the Cat Word

So, I said I would keep adding my ADD experiences and I said I had some from the past that were real gems... so here's one.



I had started dating the man of my dreams, I was 22. He was awesome, hot, smart, funny, Olympic swimmer, etc. AWESOME. Seemed to adore me too which felt great. So naturally he eventually wanted me to meet his parents. We went to their beach house when they were here from Illinois for a few weeks.



Got there and hit it off great even though I was… Continue

True that...

One of my favorite quotes to share with everyone....I remember I made my own college graduation announcements. My mom was not happy about this. Even though I had been artistic since I could remember and it does run in the family, she was still annoyed that I didn't just pick out a simple garnet and gold one to send out. So as a result, she didn't send them out to as many people as she would have "normal" ones. I didn't care, I have always been one to stay true to my self instead of conforming… Continue

Hmmmm

Okay, soooo....is it my imagination or does wine HELP the ADD....I know that physically wine is a depressant and a lot of the meds for ADD are stimulants...what are your thoughts on this? Not trying to advocate wine but I'm curious about depressants vs. stimulants i.e caffeine, etc.

Impulsivness and the Citroen

Okay. So, I;m going to start this new blog idea.....







All day long I experience things that I feel are "typical ADD". Things that others see as (enter negative adjective) and we see them as the norm buit they happen all of the time. So I have decided that as I experience these "ADD moments", I will post them. In the subject line I will have what kind of Add "symptom" it falls under. Spontaneity, impulsiveness, inability to concentrate, friendship issues, forgetfulness, bad… Continue
