How do you cope with procrastination and distractions?
Apr 30, 2016 - 8:24 PM - by seemingly
Now that we have figured out what support is

I need some.

How do you guys cope? Any techniques that work?
I either procrastinate, or start a task only to get instantly distracted (and then be distracted again from whatever distracted me)

intellectual giftedness
Apr 30, 2016 - 6:20 PM - by Jacksper
I researched the phenomenon of intellectual giftedness a bit and, while I was already sure that I have an iq of well over 130 and I noticed that my mind is always working, always connecting ideas, I never really looked into this phenomenon. Now that I did my research, I see that intellectual giftedness can lead to many similar symptoms as ADD, such as being easily bored when not being challenged, finding it hard to calm your mind down, etc. I recognize almost all of it. I don't want to jump to... [Read More]

He was willing to sign off on the half price transit fares but not on the free access pass to national parks.

When I asked him why he would not sign off on the park access pass he said that he does consider me disabled for public transit (since I'm a terrible... [Read More]

Apr 29, 2016 - 5:10 PM - by Gonzohst6869
I don't know where to begin; so I will give some details first. I was one of the kids who slipped through the system and didn't get diagnosed until just a couple of months ago, I am now 38. All the signs where there as far back as I can remember and my psych was surprised no one caught it earlier.

Since leaving College (I knew I was wasting my time) pretty much every job I had involved driving larger commercial vehicles. Any where from driving charter buses, transit buses and... [Read More]
