My better half: “What are you thinking?”
I do like the term ‘Butterfly Mind.’ Some people watch a TV show or stage production that I’ve worked on and ask, “Where do you get your ideas?” And I cannot explain. Someone asked, “How can you think up that stuff?” And I felt like saying, “How can you not.” Sometimes a strength… sometimes a curse. As we say in many of our videos, “ADHD is situational.”
The good old days? Even with my spotty memory and tendency to forget the bad stuff, I can’t say I wish I was young again. Having my whole life ahead of me? Well, I suppose you could argue I still do. It’s just a smaller amount. Two things help me maximize whatever I have left: Taking better care of myself. And being really impatient and focusing on what matters. But with ADHD that’s a constant challenge. Daily. Sometimes, hourly! Ha!
And I desperately need a can opener. So I end up being the cork that’s screwed.
People will believe what they want to believe. Facts are no longer relevant to a frighteningly large percentage of people. My advice, focus on dealing with your ADHD.
Does this happen to you? One strategies works for a while, Then it stops working? I find I start using a new strategy which is awesome and really works well and I think, “Okay, finally, I found the right one!” And a month later… It’s like aversion therapy in reverse. Something great gradually becomes good, then merely okay, and then irrelevant. Novelty. My brain wants novelty. So, I’ve decided not to ask ‘What’s wrong with me?” when something stops working and simply see it as something that is no longer workable. And moving on to something else, even something that used to work and then stopped working, is just fine.
The curse of knowing a little bit about a thousand things… and then believing other people are just as interested as I am.
It’s never one thing. Because one thing quickly triggers second, a third, a fourth….
Life is a mystery. A whodunit. And I have no idea who. I’m worried it might have been me. But I’m not sure what it is I’ve done. On the plus side, we have chocolate pudding in the house. Mmmm.
This isn’t a matter of ‘belief’ or ‘opinion.’ It’s a neurodevelopmental issue and until it’s diagnosed and dealt with it can ruin your career, your relationships, your finances, and your self-esteem.
It’s all in my head. And on my face. And in everything I do! I’m not fooling anyone!
The long and winding road… more ups and downs than an elevator.
I’m sure I’m not the only one… What?… I am? Oh.
And yet somehow I managed to be a straight C student.
Today was not one of those days. Haven’t had one in a while. Not sure what has changed or what I’m doing differently. Maybe it’s just scaling back my ToDo list to fewer tasks, broken up into smaller chunks. Working on several scripts for an hour a day each, rather than try and spend 4 hours on one.
When my son was first being diagnosed I read that list of 18 symptoms and snorted, “Who doesn’t struggle with this stuff?” Everyone faces these challenges around managing time, stuff, emotions, thoughts, and relationships. And everyone struggles to varying degrees. But the key, and this word is in the description of almost all 18 core symptoms, is “often.” At some point the challenges become overwhelming
I’m so poor at Self Assessment I actually think I’m great at Self Assessment.
It’s a struggle not to react. Or overreact. Or scream. But I must say, in the decade since we made ADD & Loving It?! and started TotallyADD.com things are better. More people get that it’s real, that it isn’t a new fad, and that it can be debilitating if you don’t deal with it.
The biggest challenge to managing my ADHD is my ADHD. Catch 22.
Of course that sort of misbehavior never happened once I became a mature adult. Which I will become someday.
Either people dismiss ADHD because “I do that sometimes… We all do.” Or they say, “I do that all the time,” in which case I suggest they should take the ADHD Screener Quiz at TotallyADD.com and see if it looks familiar. (The most common reaction to the Quiz, and to the Unofficial Quiz is, “What you been spying on me? You’ve just describe my whole life!”
To be fair, I used to spy on everyone, but it took so much time. Now I’m just trying to keep track of my own life.
Most days I’m really productive, checking tasks off my list… for about two hours. And then I come to an item I dread… And I skip it… “Oh, and the next one is a doozy, I’ll do that later… Ugh, that one is still on my list?… I need a break. I’ll grab a cookie… Maybe 3… And watch a video on Youtube… Okay, just one more… Well, the day’s shot… I’ll do better tomorrow…”
When I do one task I dread, just one, everything changes. It’s something we talked about on our Patron Live Chat with Jeff Copper on Procrastination… Figuring out what is behind the dread or ennui or frustration and addressing that.
Sometimes ADHD feels like a gift. Sometimes it feels like a curse.
And what made it a disorder for me is that I had so little control over when it switches from one to the other. I’m getting better and better at managing, harnessing the wild horses to they’re charging in right direction.
It’s exciting. But when I come up with something new that’s really good, I’ve forgotten what it was a minute later. Hmm. Need to record them and listen back. (Like I have the patience for that.)

Inspirational Memes about ADHD
Feeling like you need a little inspiration? Whether you have Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder or not, we can all use a good, inspirational quote now and then!
This summer a good friend finally pushed past years of fear, denial, and dread… and got diagnosed. Knowing changes everything. Suddenly you have an explanation that makes sense. And you can deal with it. What’s the Treatment Plan for, “I’m lazy and weak and unreliable,” except maybe, “Try Harder.”
Was it like this for you? Okay, the diagnosis didn’t explain EVERYTHING. But so much of what I did well or did poorly made sense. It was a logical consequence of having this ‘butterfly mind’ that was always playing, jumping, coming up with odd connections, and struggling with regular routine tasks.
Now you tell me?! The one universal lament among adults is, “If only I had known sooner… What might my life have been like?”
