ADD and the Suitcase: Procrastination and your ADD Brain

I have a confession to make.



Ten days ago, I returned from our family vacation. And I've yet to unpack my filled suitcase, which is still sitting on my bedroom floor. Every morning when I wake up, I look at it and make a mental note…

7 Tips for Surviving the Holidays when your Nerves are Already Shot

Last week, I recorded a show (to be aired later this month) for Tara McGillicuddy's ADHD Support Talk Radio show, speaking on the topic of ADHD and Hypersensitivities. As we were talking, it became very clear that this time of year can be most challenging for those of us who, along with our ADHD, experience tremendous difficulties with sensory overwhelm.

Sewing and Cooking and ADHD, Oh My!

Ten million years ago, when I was in Junior High School, I was forced to take the dreaded Home EC classes. I must have known early on that I'd need a decent career, since I'd never cut it as a homemaker. Cooking was a nightmare. I clearly remember being given the smallest kitchen in the smallest cubby with students who, like me, didn't know the difference between a teaspoon and a teacup. We were given the assignment of making chocolate chip cookies and it…

Nor did I decide to run a marathon (though I am up to two miles/day at an impressive 18 minute per mile). I'm not running for public office. I didn't learn how to cook an exotic meal like Coriander Meatloaf With Cilantro Pesto, Tomato Jam And Grilled Zucchini And Onions – I can barely pull together a simple meatloaf; nor did I sign up for baton lessons. What I…

Have you ever had the urge to smack someone because they're smacking their lips while eating?



Have you ever felt like you were going to lose your mind at the sound of dripping water in the next room?



Does the sound of gum chewing, humming, crinkling bags, ticking clocks trigger the urge to put your fist through a wall?

The Fear of Doing Nothing

So, I've had a bit of a revelation. If you read my last newsletter, you'd know that I waved my daughter goodbye as she left for 3 weeks + 2 days of overnight camp, leaving me with 555 1/2 hours of total freedom. It's my annual vacation from the stress of caring for a daughter with ADD plus a variety of special needs that go from…
