The heavy yet wonderful price of ADHD.. with some added benefits..

UNRULY! NAUGHTY! TROUBLED CHILD! UNCONTROLLABLE , I’ve heard this many times throughout my childhood! Well no THANK YOU SIR/MADAM!

As a child I started to become conscious of my own behaviour around 12, I was diagnosed at 7 years with ADHD. From the age of 12 I was so embarrassed to even admit to people I had ADHD, and I barely made many friends due to the fact I was scared what other children would say.  (more…)

My struggles with ADHD, friends and is ADHD down to bad parenting?

My usual thoughts at 1:23 are mainly made up of things about the past, thoughts about the future and over thinking numerous things. I guess I struggle with my ADHD more than I thought, it’s something that actually puzzles me. I compare myself when I was 14 and how far I’ve come from being an emotional troubled child, but then again I guess I’m just a emotional troubled adult (but I hide the emotions much better). I’m just 0.000000001% of the worlds population, or 1.42857143 × 10^-10 that’s out of 7 billion beings, so why do I let my worries become my biggest fears when others are in much more need.


Happy 2015!

Sorry, I had a few busy weeks and I lost track of wishing you all a happy new year, and I hope 2015 goes well with your ADHD journey! I just wanted to tell you how thankful I am to all of you (10,000+) readers who get my posts through email, or on wordpress or other various outlets. Thank you to all the various emails, Skype calls I get from people around the world. I’m always happy to discuss my ADHD and how I grew up with it. So thank you once again.

God bless.

A letter by William Hooper

I’ve never understood humans such complicated creatures. What is it about us that makes us the way we are. Our emotions? our intelligence? We’re a species that thrives on greed and selfishness. We murder for pittance, we rape for fun, we bully for comedy, we torture for freedom.

We’ve only ourselves to blame for our demise in this world, our own greed and selfishness has put unhappiness, depression and sadness upon our world.

Humankind has a way to go to correct it’s ways, but I only fear this is the beginning of all our downfall. We don’t seem to appreciate enough, we just continue with our lives ignoring our problems and neglect for ourselves, and the world around us.

We all become something, and then nothing. Our friends, our loved ones, always keep those beautiful people next to you. Never forget the good in the world, even through all the hate.

Finding things hard..

Hey everyone, hope you’ve all had an awesome day! So I’ve had a rough month, being injured twice at work and recently in hospital due to another problem where I got a head injury. I’ve been off sick the last few days and honestly I feel constantly confused and my headaches are terrible.. I guess I don’t have much confidence in my job, I find work hard and being quite new it’s difficult.

I guess I’m not in the right place to do anything at the moment, I don’t feel like working out anymore, I eat crap and frankly i’ve lost all interest in any sports.. I’m still playing rugby, and recently getting back in to a new team… but who knows how long that will last. I just feel I need to lock myself away in my room every night and just listen to music.

I’ve kind of stopped caring what others think about me, and I find myself caring less and less with normal daily conversations. I feel like my emotionless at the moment. I feel less and less to hang out with my friends, why I don’t know.

I’m going to quietly get back to trying to train, I don’t need anymore distractions in my life anymore.

Paranoia with ADHD.

You know, when I think about it, I may sometimes be paranoid and a little worried..  but I’m not going to beat around the bush that I’m the guy people kinda like, but he’s still an idiot. The young guy.. the guy who’s new and knows nothing.. yeah I’m him.
