ADD ambulance

July 30, 2008

Hello ADD ambulance, Dave speaking…
Wait – let me get a pencil.

Ok, where was that?
Ok, we’re on our way.

Let’s go – heart attack –
43 Sechrist .

Sechrist or Sea Crest?

Shit. I’m not sure.
Shit! We’re on empty.

Good, I need coffee.

Shit. I need smokes.

    I have ADD/ADHD. I think we must recognize its potential influence upon our behavior – then be able to compensate proactively. Then be able to laugh about it.

    I am very okay with who I am. I try to grow each day. I would not want to be anyone else.

    This made me laugh.

    You should be no one but you. Frankly, i don’t think any of us can really be anything other than who we are, but we try don’t we? So many struggle with themselves. i do terribly. The ability to embrace who you are is enviable.

    This is great! I got a great chuckle even though I’m not ADD/ADHD, but I can certainly relate – at least to the part where you accept yourself for who you are and then laugh about it.

    this is great … it’s exactly how i would react too. I can’t remember things immediately after they are told to me.

  5. qazse Says:

    c – yes, I think everyone struggles for/toward self acceptance at some level of their being. I also think part of our self rejection is our collective irrational belief that there is such a thing as “normal”.

    Sara – glad you got a chuckle. I must confess, I was hesitant to post this because I feared someone interpreting it as a stereotype or a put down.

    ADD Mama – what was that?

    That is very good and very funny. How was school for you?

  8. Polar Says:

    High School was Hell but isn’t it suppose to be. College went very well. My grades were good (even though the assignments took me a while) so everyone wanted my help. I avoided being the note taker in group tasks. It was at this point that i learned OCD can counter ADD. Everything HAD to be the right way for me to work, SO, when everything WAS the right way I wanted to work. I wrote ‘Dead Trees’ when at college.
    In youth I always tried to be invisible. To hide my failings. Now I’ve learned that other peoples judgments are as ignorant as my perceived faults. My sentiment on it now is thus, ‘Yeah I have issues, but my issues Rock!’ I’m no where near my apogee so I keep flapping my wings.
    Hoping the wax doesn’t melt as I near the Sun. Dobry
