I should seriously be working right now, but I cannot concentrate. My ADD/ADHD is konking me on the head with like a frying pan or baseball bat at the moment. So, I started to look up pics on procrastinating, then I started to look up how to stop procrastinating – let’s just say that made me procrastinate more. Then I started texting people, talked to my dad, and the list goes on.
I have a 15 entry list article due in like an hour, and I have only gotten 5 or 6 out of 15 completed – and I started it yesterday. I would write for a little bit and get sidetracked, and then it was like, “Oh no, now I have to do [fill in the blank] before I can get back to writing!” The list of “need to get this done now” items keeps growing. At this rate, I am never going to finish my article.
I think I am going to do research about writing an article regarding ADD/ADHD and tips for concentrating and diminishing procrastination. I mean, yeah, I looked some up a little while ago but I didn’t really process any of it. My mind seems to be running a mile a minute. Like, if my thoughts could run a race in the Olympics right now, they would be the winner by a long shot. My fingers cannot seem to keep up with my brain in order to type; and I am getting way too bored of things, way too fast.
It is hard to decipher if it just my attention deficit issues, or if I am in a hypomanic episode. The only reason I am even wondering this is due to the fact that; 1 – I am in an excellent mood and 2 – I am wide awake. Both are signs of mania/hypomania. I am also a rapid cycler, which means I could switch in and out of moods/episodes at the drop of a dime. 😮
On a different note: I have finally, thanks to Mrs. Procrastination, picked up on reading a bit again. I am an avid reader, but due to being busy with articles and posts all the time I haven’t been able to enjoy a good book in a while. I dusted off my Kindle and started reading this book that I had seen advertised on Twitter – Anxiety Girl By Lacey London. I am 76 percent done with this book, and I must say that I love it so far! It perfectly details the feelings of anxiety and depression. I like it so much, that I already bought part two. I really cannot wait to finish this book and see how it turns out for the main character.
I would really like to start a book review portion of this site regarding books about mental health, addiction, and so on. Basically, anything that that would match what we write about on here. I have read so many amazing books on mental health and addiction that I would definitely reread just to be able to do an accurate review on them to share with you guys and gals. Some of the stories I have read are really inspirational, while others have a sad ending. One of my all-time fave authors happens to be Ellen Hopkins – so I would love to reread her books again. I have almost her entire collection.
Well, I suppose I should get back to work now that my mind had temporarily gone back to normal. Lol. Or, at least, as normal as it can be! 😀
Thanks For Reading! ♥
