How many of you never “outgrew” your hyperactivity? If so, how does it impact your life now?

You have a mental illness. Any one really will do. The key take away from this is that a brain illness that causes the brain to react differently than it normally would and that it is a lens through which you view the world. Bipolar, depression, ADHD (which I believe a lot of people here have with depression). Or better yet, OCD.

As for me, I have... [Read More]

How do you task-switch efficiently?
May 21, 2018 - 4:24 PM - by WheresMyMind
I never get up with ambition...nothing drives me. Have been this way all my life with very few exceptions. Going through a required house move, when I don't have a place to go with space, is making it worse.


Most days, I can do one thing, then I struggle to do the next. Priority setting is vague - I'm a bit at the mercy of a friend who houses me in exchange for maintaining house and vehicle. Teenagers involved, so the maintenance can be quite interruptive (the 14 year... [Read More]
