The ADD Challenge!


MARRIAGE!!...
It could so easy for folks married to people with ADD to lose patience and get divorced when the going gets rough..
Imagine two people with this condition and shades of manic depression...
Could that be twice as bad??
It's easy to just say
"Fuck it! ...Another one bites the dust...
easy come...
easy go...
but suddenly there is a love child involved and that changes the whole story....
He has changed both of our lives...
Suddenly this young man came into our ADD world
and put us both into topsy turvy
and we have to figure out not the very easy solution of parenting in the 21st century...
but at least we are coping in paradise...
Can't beat taking a dip in the rejuvenating salt waters of the Pacific two times a day....
and then she gets distracted and forgets about the tomato soup, rice and pasta creation of her husband's on the stove!!

"The stories of creative individuals are replete with instances of childhood problems in school (Piirto, 1992; Thompson, 1971; West, 1991). Although it has been argued that many creative individuals have suffered from mood disorders and other clinically significant psychological problems (Hershman & Lieb, 1988; Jamison, 1993), there are others whose behavior, although irregular, may be more indicative of their creativity than of any disorders. In the case of Janet Frame, New Zealand's poet and novelist, her "difference" resulted in a diagnosis of schizophrenia, confinement to a mental institution, and the scheduling of a lobotomy that was only canceled when her first novel gained widespread distinction (Frame, 1984, pp. 110-111). In some cases the very qualities that cause creative individuals to have problems are the same ones that may facilitate in their creative accomplishments. Edison's energy, the vivid imagery in the daydreams of Frost and Wright, and Einstein's alternative mode of thinking created problems for them in school, but were undoubtedly invaluable in their creative endeavors."
