I think my blog has ADHD.

  • A few ADHD Symptoms my blog or I seem to have.
    1. Is often forgetful in daily activities
    2. Is easily distracted (my blog has this one BAD!).
    3. Fidgets with hands or feet or squirms in seat.
  • The most common ADHD symptom in my life.
    1. Is often “on the go,” acts as if “driven by a motor,” talks excessively

The funny thing is that I really don’t have ADHD. At least, I do not think that I have it. I’ve never been diagnosed with it, and I seem to have a pretty rockin’ life (well, nobody has a perfect life all the time). I am able to pay attention (to most things, most of the time) and I know when to control myself (also most of the time). How is this different from anyone else? We all have our moments when we just can’t seem to focus, or when our lives are spinning 8 million point five miles per hour. Yeah. That’s fast.

Maybe I have ADHD and maybe I don’t. What I know is this — if I ever end up being diagnosed with ADHD, I will not allow it to run/change my life drastically. I’ve made it almost 20 years without any medication/special treatment/etc. and I don’t want to just give up and say “Well these people (“experts”) say that I have trouble with something so I must have trouble with it.”

I already did that with mathematics, and ever since then I have struggled with math and thought I am not good at it. From now on I am going to be more confident in myself, and I am not going to let somebody completely rule me out of something because their righteousness thinks that I am less capable than another person.

Happy Adventures,
Burkie

I’m Tweeting (Yikes!)

  • So, I started going by my middle name in college because I've always liked it better. Now I'm Renée, and can be tweeted at "teafaellana." 2 years ago
  • I keep reading fanfics to tide me over until #OUaT is back. I can't wait to see more character development of Regina! #EvilRegals 3 years ago
  • This has somehow been the best and worst Thanksgiving I've ever had, all at once. 3 years ago

Heather loves hats that are designed to look like cute animals, fairy wings, cheese pizza, swimming in ponds, roller blading, taking silly self-portraits, learning, spending time with people, and just about everything else too. Heather does not love ... well, there isn't a lot that she doesn't love. You can probably figure it out after a little while!
