Follow your passion.....

Posted 09-29-08 at 11:32 AM by Anna000

OOOOooooOOO a blooooog. It's like coming into a brand new empty apartment. WOW look at the walls. The color is like those purple candies my dad had in his night stand. (Yes, when I was a kid I would scavenge for candy everywhere.) Wow…I don’t know what to do.


It’s like fine china. I don’t want to mess it all up.
Mom: “don’t use the china dishes, that’s for guests.”
Me: “ Mother!, I beg to differ! But I would like to eat cereal in style.” (I talked like...

Can't confirm but many patterns

Posted 09-24-08 at 02:42 PM by golfslam
Hello everyone I joined the board to get some insight on ADHD. A little about me. I am 41 never married male. It took me 14 years off and on in college to get my degree and this included many trips to the campuses of 4 schools where I'd sit in the car instead of attending class. It goes without saying that I dropped alot of classes and money. I have had 1 serious relatiosnship up until this point that failed. Now I am afraid 2. I have always had trouble concentrating, boredom, fidgeting, studying,...
