Hi! My name is Kathleen, but most people just call me Katie. I’m 24 years old… well as of the date this is written (April 9th 2017) and I have dogs.
Not really though, I do have dogs, but this blog is not about them, or, maybe sometimes it will be. This blog is really about living with ADHD though. I’m going to use it as a way for me to clear my thoughts so that I can try to focus on living in the moment, and getting shit done, instead of having 3 million thoughts in my head.
I was diagnosed with ADHD officially last year, so when I was still 24, I will be 25 in May. Since then I have had lots of ups and downs with treatment. I still am trying to figure out what works best for me. The only thing that I know for sure does NOT work for me is group therapy…
For some people, it works wonders, but for me? NO. I have too much of a hero complex to handle it. I want to help everyone else, and wind up never helping myself. Or I pretend that I am ok, so that I do not drag anyone else down, even though, I could really use someone to lift me up.
I’m probably way too talkative for my own good. I will talk about anything, but especially news. I am a self diagnosed news junkie, I love watching the news and reading about current events. (Ask me about how I took the whole class on in Jeopardy in Jr. High and won, because I read current event magazines, and watched the news ALL the time.)
My ADHD has been both a blessing and a curse in my life, and that will probably become more apparent the more I write.
If you read this far, I congratulate you, and you are now awarded this medal,
for putting up with my rambling piece of crap introduction. If you have any questions, I love to talk, so just drop a comment, and I will answer you! Unless you are going to ask for my address, or to borrow my undies… thats just creepy.
