Classic case of Attention Deficit Disorder is the 19 year old female university student They go off to university and everything starts to fall apart It doesn't fall apart because they're partying too much or they're not mature enough 1 It's because for the first time in their life that exoskeleton wasn't there Then things didn't go well and then they're left with this feeling of lI'm not as good as everybody else I'm not as smart as everybody else They show up at the university health services and the psychiatrist says well how long have you been depressed for? And the psychiatrist has slid the young lady into the pstychiatrist's comfort zone of depression and anxiety fuckingconversations pazdispenser CBC made a good documentary on adult ADHD and part of it really caught me off guard because i swear they repeated verbatim my life story for the past 3 years full programme here httpwwwcbccanatureofthingsepisodesadhd-not-just-for-kids My ADHD manifested in excellent in-class work Excellent understanding in discussions Excellent participation My ADHD manifested in piles of homework left undone until the last possible minute while I stared at them thinking “I want to get these done I understand the theory It would take 10 minutes I want to start why can’t I start?” My ADHD manifested in fantastic reading comprehension - nigh impenetrable focus on interesting topics the first time I’m reading about them My ADHD manifested in a complete inability to focus on reviews or re-reads mind skittering sideways and away whenever anything was boring or repetitive I sat down to study my books open my eyes on the text and my brain clawing its way out the back of my head to focus on something else - anything else Focus focus! No My ADHD manifested in Articulating wings half-finished but still beautiful in beautiful lineart and half-hearted coloring In stories written passionately for days until I forgot it existed and never returned In projects started and forgotten and started and forgotten a thousand times until my bins of project supplies piled up and my bank account shriveled down No it will be different this time - I LOVE this new thing This new thing is my world my destiny my Everything I CREATE and CREATE and CREATE and never FINISH My ADHD manifested in confusion and surprise as time slithered away hours passing like minutes and minutes seeming endless by contrast An inability to gauge how much time had passed was left a task would take An inability to hold dates in my head because time didn’t feel consistent or even real My ADHD manifested in watching someone talk and not understanding a word they said - literally hearing sounds and translating out only nonsense In thoughts so loud I couldn’t speak coherently In a conversation across the room shattering an idea I was trying to hold It’s hard to think when you’re already thinking about everything around you Meme
