Among the many nasty aspects of having ADHD—I mean, a specific aspect, not just the fact that it sucks—is that The Deficit provides an entry point for depression (so-named after the famously unsuccessful French general, Jacques de Pression, whose inability to win even the smallest battle made everyone in France so sad) and depression loves to put its dirty hobnailed boot on the neck of creativity.

One way to deal with this is to surround oneself with visual reminders that creativity can survive, given half a chance. There's a nifty blog called Stair Porn that features photos of …yes! you guessed it! Stairs.

Now, stairs might not seem very sexy to you. But head over there and look at the pretty photos. And take heart: you can do this, or something like it. Design your own stairs. Or start your own blog.

But do something, for Pete's sake.
