I'm glad you're back. I hate it when I don't recognize myself. Who was that masked woman???!!!
Do you have your Babble-Censor-Matic handy?

Alexandra,
I miss AdaGrace too. She seemed to understand my mania. She seemed to be able to be there with me, when I really needed someone to be there for me. Oops, I'm starting to cry.

It's so nice to be online again. I wish I weren't such a donkey's behind but I guess I am and I guess all I can do is work more on being the front end.

Yes, PC, I have it right here, in my right ear.

I'm looking for a job and can't find one, nobody wants to hire somebody who's 47 and studying for a second career.

Hey, what d'you know? I woke up this morning and realized in my Prozac haze last year I don't have a family anymore. I haven't done any bookkeeping for a year. I may have no investments, I really have no clue anymore. I have a ton of paperwork sitting on the floor beside my computer desk, and no motivation to start ... and I made a donkey's end of myself with a psychologist here in town, who knows someone I know and when I found that out I blushed from the hairs on my head to the tops of my nipples.

Why is it so much easier to hate yourself, than love yourself?

It's lovely to be with you again. Thank you for being friendly to me even when I didn't and don't deserve it.

I miss hearing (seeing) you and Adagrace and Toph mess around. You guys made me laugh. You can say *ss now. *ss *ss *ss. The civility checker will keep us in line! There are a few bugs though... But thats not our problem :-)

It is good to have you back.

Silly girl. No one thinks any the less of you. In fact you gained a fair number of admirers, I think.

Welcome back. :)

 

Good to see you posting again :-) (nm)

Susan -
Hope you had a nice New Year's! And yes, isn't the pile of paperwork never ending??
I believe you are Canadian (eh?), do you still have the pleasure of filling out government forms by a certain date for taxes? Ours is April 15th and I already feel the dread forming.

Hi Susan. I'm glad you explaind what happened. I wanted to say hello when I first saw that you were back, but I worried about a stalker perception. I have really been counting on Lamictal giving me a lift and its turning into a pipe dream. I'm phasing PB out as I'm pissing my wife off despite all my efforts to try to convince her that it is helpful to associate with people I can be open with about my illness. I made an @ss of myself on New Years having too much fun with the neighbors. They haven't been seen since (hopefully it's a coincidence). They're from Ohio and Craig Krenzel the OU quarterback who led them to a NCAA championship was there. Inebriated, I slapped him on the back (he's on injured reserve from the Bears with a back injury, oops). I hope that things go well for you. Tell Gracie I miss her. I'll see you around. Thanks for being a friend.

Toph

 

Toph!!!

Wow, I'm so glad to hear from you. I was concerned when you didn't respond, Don't think you're perceived as stalking hon, you aren't.
Hey, do you have a stalking history? I guess that could leave its effects, couldn't it.
Were you a pain in the @ss drunk on New Years? Lucky you. It's a job, somebody's got to do it, and no party is a real party without at least one person that everybody can talk about later. Relax, I'll bet everybody loved you. Did you read Partycloudy's ode to the bottle? She's smart, that one is.
I'm havin' a bit of a rough time myself, and to be honest with you, it's because I'm so bl**dy honest. Expound on that later.
I miss Gracie too.

 

Welcome back, Susan (nm) Susan47

Susan - Looks like you had a time away and lots of peeps glad to see you back. I am searching for your post re: book re: ADD.

My mother just sent me the most invalidating response to my searching for an answer re: possible ADD or ADHD. She has a business and they're all laughing, saying they're getting ADD, like it was a joke.

Oh how I wish my Dad hadn't passed away. It will a couple weeks; the first anniversary of his passing.

I want to get the right book ... there are so many out there. Tks cf

Did you not find the book I recommended? Also, it really is upsetting when people joke about serious disorders and try to pretend they're common no big deal because it minimizes what we go through. P*ss on them.

Hi Susan ... gave a once over babble and didn't find. Will try find it.

After doc said what he did, I told my family back in IA; they all thought it was a joke, my mom saying 'oh I've got ADD and now so-n-so does too, and I think so-n-so is getting it now, laughing about their forgetfulness'!

My life has been much more difficult now that my father passed away. There is a lot of denial in my family which live far away from me.

Need to check Grief too.

Is there some kind of stratostatic collision in space today, 'cuz I feel a lot of weird feelings today?! No, really! Tks Susan, cf

Corafree, I'm going to try the double double quotes, maybe we'll be lucky and it will come up and I don't really understand it so I hope it doesn't look foolish if it doesn't come up, darn that Bob anyway, "Scattered Minds"

 

Nope, that's not it.

Try again, "Scattered Minds, A New Look at the Origins and Healing of Attention Deficit Disorder" by Gabor Mate.

 

And one more time.

I wondered why you weren't just telling me the book name and now I see why. Ha.

Thanks Susan.

I took the Dr. J. G(?) Attn Def Dis Test and got a score of 89!!!!

What meds/therapy works/doesn't work for you?

When did it first present itself to you, .. I mean when did you feel you weren't getting slow easy messages and thoughts?

Here's to you! cf

Hi Cora, I tried Dr. Grohol's ADD quiz because you mentioned it. I scored a 66...moderate ADD. Most of us can dx ourselves better than any T. or Pdoc. What happened to you was not very nice. I always knew I had it. It used to be worse...Suggestion: (hope you are not a nurse) Don't become a nurse. I am and you have to be organized. I struggle every day. terrics
p.s. I think the wellbutrin helps.
