I did it again...

Sorry guys.. I did it again. I wrote the last time back in May and have not wrote since then. Well I have started keeping a journal lately and have started new medication for my A.D.D. so goal is to be better at everything, including writing more often. Writing is an outlet for me and while I write facebook posts and tweets, it's not the same as writing a full blog entry, especially when I have a specific topic to discuss. Plus I want to get more interaction with my fans and this is a perfect place to do so!
To touch more on the A.D.D. medicine though...

I put up the following update on fb the other day- 

      I am an adult with A.D.D. Many people think they have it and often times when I mention it I get the same reaction- O I think I may have that too. Some may perhaps but those that don't have no idea whats it is really like. Some are understanding, some just laugh it off and most don't really understand it. Having A.D.D. can be a struggle. The mind is already a crazy place but when you are unable to properly maintain all the info swimming around up there it can be a little tricky just to get the normal day to day things done. Why am I posting this to fb? Well I want people out there struggling with it to know they aren't alone, I'd like to help change some of the stereotypical thoughts associated with it and after taking myself off meds for it about 7 years ago I just restarted medication so I am hoping to get a little bit of control of it myself. We all have issues in our lives, some admit them, some cannot but always remember no matter what you are struggling with you are never alone. Someone out there is struggling too. If you have an issue in your life don't shy away from it, let it make you an even better person!

I want to be an advocate for A.D.D. awareness. I want people to know they are not alone, it's rough at times but there are things out there you can do to help it! At the end of this blog I will post a link to a great website you can go to for information on both A.D.D. and A.D.H.D. and how to know if you or someone you know may have it and what resources are available to you. I'm also always here if you have any questions for me, just shoot me an email!

Lost Dreams

It's 2011, times are tough and everyone is out here grinding to get to the top... So many have lost their jobs due to the recession and have to take jobs doing whatever comes their way just to have food on the table and a roof over their head. Not many really want to flip burgers or work the local department store register but if you want to survive we do what we have to do. It's how the country works... if there was noone flipping burgers, where would we get our food? What does this have to do with dreams? well a lot.... As a child one of the questions we are asked most often is what do you want to be when you grow up? Some ponder this and reply with whatever their mommy or daddy does, others reply doctor or fireman, some just don't know. We are told we can do anything! We can concure the world if we work hard, pay attention and try.. then real world hits... you gradute school and have more bills than zeros on your check, you get pregnant, or hurt yourself and lose a s

The 1st Mercury Retrograde of 2018 is coming...

It's has been one of those weeks.. where nothing I plan seems to work out, where I am on edge and irritable. While there are probably a number of reasons for this the biggest culprit (aside from being a hormonal woman reaching her forties...yikes) is, I believe, Mercury Retrograde is on the way... This is a term a lot know, some have heard of and a few of you may be googling it as you read this. It is a time of year where things can just seem to be a little "off". About 3 to 4 times a year Mercury comes close to earth and once it hits a certain spot it "appears" to go backwards leaving the earth and all of us on it to feel its effects and get thrown off track for about 3 weeks, sometimes a little longer. I am by no means an astrologer or claiming to have an expertise in this field, all I can do is tell you my own experiences and maybe help you through the rough time that can usually accompany it. I have found it can cause electronics to go crazy, people t

Rebirth

Time for me to put up one of the most honest and realest blogs you have ever seen from me. Since my break up at the end of 2011 I really haven't discussed it. I closed the door, shoved it under the rug and just kept my fingers crossed that every time I went out no one would ask me where 'he' was. I am sitting here looking at the last year. The things that have changed and decided it was time to write this... In that relationship we had it all planned out: goals, dreams, cars, kids, marriage and more. I thought I had met the man that I was going to spend the rest of my life with and I started living just that way. As though this was my husband and he was going to be at my side through it all, no matter what... WRONG. Life isn't that easy.. I should have known that but my happiness and desire for a real committed relationship clouded my decisions at the time. I won't discuss the details of  the break up or intimate details of the relationship but I will say it w
