It's All So Clear Now
I just had a surprising epiphany today which explains a lot of the chaos in my life.
-my inability to cope with mundane tasks
-why schedules, dates, times, appointments continually evade me
-my extreme distractiblility
-why I have a really hard time remembering conversations
I have A.D.D.
I knew I was different, but had always considered myself to be a daydreamer. I'm often lost in my thoughts. I'm continually in a state of hyperfocus which is great creatively, but it wreaks havoc in the other practical (yet necessary) areas of my life.
And it explains why my little guy is having such a hard time in school.
He got it from me.
It was from me.
