Shifting Into Work Mode

I don’t know if it’s the ADHD, but I’m having a hard time transitioning back into work mode after only two days off.

The ADDitude college blogger writes about surviving college and succeeding in school with ADHD
I’ve been back at work two days so far – but I wish I was still on vacation! I don’t know if it’s the ADHD, if it’s just me, or if it happens to everyone, but I’m having such a hard time transitioning back into work mode after only two days off. Since I had Friday and Monday off, the vacation felt like four days to me...

Surprise Family Vacation

Nothing refreshes and regroups all the ADHDers in our family better than a surprise family vacation.

The ADDitude college blogger writes about surviving college and succeeding in school with ADHD
I just got back from the best weekend ever! I went on a four-day surprise vacation with my family to a gorgeous resort cabin in Maine. The location was a surprise until we arrived; I was told to ask for Friday and Monday off and that it was about four hours away by car. I’ve been anticipating this weekend for a few weeks now, asking...

ADHD Knitting

Staying committed to one project for months is just too much to ask for a person with ADHD.

The ADDitude college blogger writes about surviving college and succeeding in school with ADHD
Along with relaxation, this weekend also brought back a hobby I had neglected since last winter. Knitting. I used to love knitting; especially when I lived at college and needed a break from studying. I would sit in my favorite chair, put on a movie, and not look up from my knitting until the end credits. Knitting is so soothing; the click of the needles,...

The ADHD Voter

Can somebody please just tell me the truth? I find it impossible to sort through all this political jibberjabber.

The ADDitude college blogger writes about surviving college and succeeding in school with ADHD
Today I am officially a responsible citizen. I registered to vote! OK, so the last day to register was today, and true to my ADHD-self I screamed in there at the last minute license in hand, ready to become a voting citizen. As I contemplated which party I should register as I was reminded that this is a serious decision and I shouldn’t just check off...

Incomplete Projects

Typical of ADHD, I had so much energy and motivation until the job got boring and I quickly lost interest.

The ADDitude college blogger writes about surviving college and succeeding in school with ADHD
This weekend I was planning to take all my winter clothes out of the basement and put all my summer clothes away until spring. I know this is not a quick project, but it was a long weekend; I thought that was plenty of time to get organized. I was supposed to work at the mall for four hours on Saturday, and four hours Sunday...

An ADHD Apology

Lately, it feels like all the things I should be doing are on a moving sidewalk and I can't keep up.

The ADDitude college blogger writes about surviving college and succeeding in school with ADHD
I’m sorry – ok – I’m sorry. I’m sorry I watched TV instead of doing the dishes. I’m sorry I didn’t get around to doing laundry until I was wearing my very last pair of socks. I’m sorry we made plans three weeks ago and then I canceled the day before. I’m sorry I said I would clean my room and never did. I’m sorry I...

ADHD Diet Woes: My McDonald's Downfall

This live-in-the-moment, right-here right-now ADHDer doesn’t stand a chance against the bright lights, flashy signs, and mouth-watering deals at fast-food joints.

The ADDitude college blogger writes about surviving college and succeeding in school with ADHD
McDonald's is the arch-enemy of my ADHD diet. Picture this scenario: I got up at 6am to get ready for work. I worked all day, stopping for lunch around noon. By the time I leave work and sit in traffic all the way home I have about 10 minutes to change into comfier shoes and go to my next job until 10pm. At 10pm, when I finally...
