Tidying up, laundry, folding and ironing said laundry, dishes (thank the Maker for dishwashers!), cleaning,... KEEPING IT CLEAN.

But today, I'll tackle it using the following ADHD-tactic: Divide and conquer. Not like I'll divide among the different members of my family (which would only be me and my boyfriend) -- I've tried that tactic and he's more sloth than me. Me being unable to be a "non-sloth" (not...

Dad

Dad



He never looks for praises
He's never one to boast

In times of stress and strife
A true friend we can turn to
When times...

Unsolicited Diagnosis Leading to OVER diagnosis?

Posted 09-17-11 at 04:41 PM by CrushCrush
It's not a secret that people buy tabloids or what tabloid TV because they thrive on the misfortunes of others. The same thing can be said about people on forums. Not just this one.

When a forum member, expresses grief of a struggle, like flies to poo, you will have a gathering of forum members.. a 'group' or 'sorority' to bask in the enjoyment of someone else's suffering of failures. It makes them feel so much better about themselves. It empowers them.

Here are some...
