My Forum Comments
Thought I should share an update-ish…
The extra time is giving me the ability to really push forward in my own art and building up to a YouTube channel, website, etc. Now if only I can squeeze some success out of my personal endeavors, I’ll have more ability to decide whether returning to a classroom is for me (hint: it’s not).
Was talking to my wife this afternoon about coping strategies. I learned back in my early 20’s after losing my wallet and locking my keys in the car (a couple times for each) – I am constantly checking my pockets to verify I have keys and wallet. I kinda look and feel paranoid or OCD, but I haven’t lost my wallet or keys in decades. I think there is an anxiety component to it as well though as I’ll double and triple check to be sure. Its kinda like when I used to wear a watch, I’d check the time but it wouldn’t really register and I’d find myself checking a couple/few times before I’d actually know what time it was.
Hmmm… Scored even higher on the Executive Function Disorder test than the ADHD test. Interesting stuff.
I just found an article online about this speech thing being a symptom of anxiety (some types anyway). Oddly, even just talking to my wife sometimes I have this problem. Seems my brain may not be coming out of anxiety mode even when I have nothing to be anxious about. Interesting stuff for sure. Kinda just wish I wasn’t my own subject in this research I’ve been doing.
Thanks for commenting Todd.
