I have had the nuttiest forty-eight hours. I’m ADHD and every so often it flares up and catches me off guard.
I know I’m on it when;
-everything has got to be perfect…and will be checked on periodically.
-I am checking on at least twenty very important things and all of them periodically.
-I am periodically checking that I’m checking on these things periodically.
-I am able to accomplish above in about an hour
-I spend the next hour checking that everything is perfect
Howzat? This way madness lies!
It’s very good for my work, and for accomplishing and for leading (sometimes!) but it’s appalling for my sense of peace and stability!
It wasn’t diagnosed until I was thirty-five, and thank God it was. What this does is, once you know it’s there, you can manage it. And it’s obvious. All those school reports…fidgety…fidgety…FIDGETY!
Anyway, it is what it is, I shall try and not re-visit my last post (almost put a link in here) or the poem it refers to (almost put one here) or the accompanying, plaintive yelp for help (and one more here).
I shall steel myself, pull myself up by the jock-strap, and face the wind.
As far away from myself as humanly possible.
You know I’m going to wake up in the middle of the night and write a proper post about my dream vacation, don’t you.
