i was not creative before wellbutrin, either.

ESH (rip) was super creative. I used to piggy back off his ideas and add to then. Maybe thats whyu thought i was creative.

It was never me.

Re: Uncontrollably gifted ADHD

People with lives are either out partying, or finished partying and sleeping it off.

Not much of a controllablr plan, but did lots of interestinng stuff.

Besides partying.

Re: Uncontrollably gifted ADHD

I believe ADHD is not a gift in any way.

It is an illness (the technical term is disorder)

There is no difference between ADHD, Cancer or AIDS (except that the former is from birth whereas the latter 2 are acquired)

I agree ADHD is not a gift.

But I do think that peoples experiences and available skill set.

Will have creative outcomes because of the experience individual.

ADHD people are always noted for being inteligent and clever.

Disagree!

Einstein said something like ,

A creative person is a person who is good at hiding where the original idea came from..

I agree that Esh was very uniquely super creative,

That being said Esh was also very uncontrollably super creative.

Um ... "always"?

I've seen lots of posters on this forum who felt dumber than a bedbug.

Even though my IQ is considered high (but not Mensa high), I've always
felt dumb and incapable of completing a thought or being clever.

you want to be reading Jacques Kerouac. He never edited, typed on a roll of paper so he didn't have to stop to replace the individual sheets.

BTW Mozart wrote music in similar fashion, just wrote without revision.

Lunacie, you may feel that way but it does not make it true. We are all a little dysfunctional in a limited social paradigm sort of way but there is nobody dumb on THIS forum. Look at the level of conversation and try to find another forum with a similar tone.

I'm a little embarrassed to honestly say,

I was up against those bedbugs in the past.

And I honestly think they are very smart.

Examples upon requests.

That being said,



I disagree with you lunacie aswell,

If a person with ADHD had a creative thought, the thought could be on any subject.

And losses focus, the forgetting of the creative thought is not a lack of intelligence but the ADHD disablity .

Intelligence is still there.

I actually think the word bumb should be banned from this site.

It has no meaning to me.

Re: Uncontrollably gifted ADHD

Using our intelligence and creativity...


..in a focused manner is a different topic.

Example we all can read.

But can we focus?

I wonder what the statistics are for the "uncontrollable creativity" of an ADHDer?

And the stats on creativity, created?

Re: Uncontrollably gifted ADHD

Maybe being special is a better term. Even though it is a broader term in wording,but has lost its true meaning. Now special is related to being forest gump-esque and not x-men special-esque. It's a gift if one knows how to use it,which is a separate gift altogether. The later being confidence and luck,with confidence the luck can be created. Creation comes from doing,to do it to try,to try is to persevere,the persevering is the hard part,aka-hyper focus,to control this is where we struggle. Round and round i went,where i stopped nobody knows. Especially me! Now that was hard work,all two minutes of trying,alias-hyper fockus.
