Yes! More things I recognize.
Anyone ever take up horseback riding? I did from 10-14 years old, and I was always the one that fell off. I guess that I couldn’t readjust fast enough to keep my balance, when my mind was drifting. Actually broke my arm one time.
And gymnastics? 9-12 years old. That did help with balance, but it never became natural and automatic. I had to keep using my eyes for balance and landing, really thinking about how to do that. Didn’t help that I was wearing glasses at the time and the brain had to adjust to distorted information all the time.
I am constantly amazed that all these little things are linked to ADD. I know it is normal to have these idiosyncracies, but all at the same time I guess is a symptom of ADD.
Every time I visit this site there is relief. And well yes, sadness too for all the problems in the past, but mostly relief.REPORT ABUSE
