When I first discovered that I had ADHD I absolutely hated it because I realized I was different from everyone else. I saw it as a weakness that was holding me back from achieving my dreams. Since I have come to learn to accept it, I now know how to make use of it and use it to my advantage. As I’ve grown up I know see I have the strength within myself to overcome this. I love how I take interest in things some people generally don’t find interesting. Also I love the wondrous and colorful thoughts that engage my mind.

I am still not fully recovered and I most likely won’t ever be, there will always be that little voice inside my head. I started my journey with addiction and recovery the summer before freshman year. Everything changed going into highschool. I started hanging out with different friends, I slacked in school, and my personality was trash.
Hi Brian, I am contacting you about a issue that I am running into with my ASM. I am a new store manager for Office Depot since Oct, 9th at the Columbia Mo, location and I am having trouble with my ASM completing simple task lists as well as day in the life tasks. This was one of the first issues that I attempted to fix as soon as I arrived at the store, being that when I showed up in October the store had not completed portal tasks since the begging of September and were failing to complete the day in the life processes, displaying a lack of accountability on his behalf of the management team. He is having a hard time in his roll since I have been at the store as the current store manager, and has consistently come up short on completing tasks
The 3rd grade to the 7th grade was one of the most dreadful times of my life. It all started when my 3rd grade teacher took me to a room where my parents were sitting in. She started talking to them about how I was always looking distracted or confused during test’s and assignments. She suggested that we go see a doctor about me having ADD or ADHD but at the time I had no idea what ADD was or if it would affect my life in the slightest. When we arrived at the doctors he started asking me many question about my day to day life.
How I overcame ADHD ADHD is Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, it’s where you’re basically distracted easily and can get hyper. I've had to cope with a lot of stuff my entire life, but ADHD was the hardest thing I have ever needed to take care of. I eventually learned that I don’t need the medicine to keep me calm and sometimes you can tell I still have it but I am generally calm.
As I spoon JIF creamy peanut butter and Breyers coffee ice cream into my mouth I contemplate my AA meeting. I purchased the Alcoholics Anonymous book a few months ago when you told me about the group therapy opportunity. The book is a little bit boring or maybe it’s too long and I get discouraged. Anyways, I was extremely excited to go to my first AA meeting.
It takes one time Being the child of an addict is terrifying! You never know how and why it started. And you always wonder if it was you the one that caused it. After you find out you always wonder if he is going to go back to his old habits.
“Oh please! You guys say that you want to move into this new house because it looks great. The real reason is because the commute to my therapist is much faster. I’m fine mom and dad! I don’t need antidepressants nor do I need a therapist.
I fully believe our struggles define who we are and what we will become. My anxiety disorder has been a factor in my life ever since I was a child but it was always unknown, just something I believed to be normal. I knew I was anxious but I never knew why. As a child, I was always the kid that just “didn’t come out of her shell yet” and then during middle school, I realized something was wrong when I couldn’t get to school in the morning and panic attacks came daily.
I have been in a book slump for months, I started reading a lot of books, but none of those entertained me. If nothing else, it made me feel annoyed, bored and completely numb. So when Addicted For Now arrived, I knew this is my damsel in distress whisking me away. Ricochet left me in a disastrous state and I was hoping my reaction and feelings toward the sequel would be just as intense, though there is always that fear.

Don 't feel bad, we can 't see what others post until we post our own so there was really no way of knowing. As well as there are a million different angles that can be taken on this disorder. Mine was diagnosed way into adulthood and both of my children have it. Because my daughter was diagnosed so late, I try to use the knowledge and experiences we gained from her mis-fortune to educate
My heart would palpitate while my skin flushed. I could feel myself getting hotter and more nervous as thoughts raced through my head. They weren’t connected, but they felt tied together, stuck. I felt as if my life was on a video reel but the sounds were distorted, and the film was held together by a shaky hand. My teacher looked at me, saying something but all I heard was unintelligible speech, the other students were staring at me while I prayed silently for a sinkhole to open up and remove me from the situation entirely.
I need to get this off of my chest, and I need to do it now. Mental illness is not a beautiful thing. Quite frankly, it is a disaster that can destroy lives. Literally. I cannot name a single beautiful thing about mental illnesses except for the people that they torment.
At the time, I didn 't understand. I wanted to, but I couldn 't. I was too young, too naive, and too unsure of myself. My mother would just lay there on the couch, too tired to provide for me or treat me like her child. In my more adolescent stages, I was surrounded by people like my mother- itching for their next high, willing to do anything to achieve it. Addiction can be scary, especially for a child of eight or nine.
