• Comments from ADD’ers

    Adults with ADHD often share common symptoms, characteristics and traits. Can you relate to these real-life experiences of the ADHD Center for Success blogsite readers and my coaching clients? Can you relate to these experiences??

    “I loved your postings on your website. I am really trying to keep my emails more concise and to the point.  I have also thought a lot about how much structure was in my marriage/working schedule and how that made it much easier to function.”

    I am sure you have heard this before, but exercise is boring and especially to the ADHDer.   “What? An hour on that stupid machine- No way.”   BUT if I play video games (Mario Kart) while I am on the elliptical machine, I can go for over an hour.  I suppose the stimulation is enough to keep me on that machine.  So, it wasn’t that I am lazy or lack of disciple or lack of ambition.  It is the fact that I never had the stimulus to keep me interested. 

    The funny thing is my wife asked me, “Do you know you had 4 miles in on that machine yesterday and burned over 600 calories.”  “Really, I didn’t know that, but I do know that I am really ripping through Mario Kart.”

    The last time I talked to you, I told you I was in “princess mode,” just sort of resting and chilling since the move.  It quickly progressed to POPCICLE MODE-  frozen solid.  I haven’t done as many productive things since I talked to you last week.  I guess I got moved in, saw all the boxes to unpack and go through, and CHOSE not to act. I truly believe that just “thinking” about these things, things, stuff, and more stuff, rather than “tackling” these things made the tasks seem much more difficult than they actually are. And the “thinking” and “fretting” created more emotional/physical fatigue than the energy I would produce by “doing.”
