The Best: The Tangle

Looking for unique stocking stuffers? As part of my The Best series, I'm sharing some of my favorite gadgets with you. The Best series are unsolicited reviews, 100% my own opinions. I was not provided any items for this review or any kind of compensation for my reviews. Are you a fidgeter? I am.

A Day in the Life of ADHD

Today, in the continuing saga of unmedicated ADHD, I have: Heavily researched and argued on Facebook for people who work at a company that I really don't care that much about. I mean, I love Twinkies and Snoballs, but I  don't know why I needed to know exactly how much the CEO is compensated, how Hostess had been taking money from employee paychecks for the pensions but not putting it into … [Read more...]

Oh yeah, I totally identify with the dog Doug in the movie Up who is easily distracted by the squirrel. If you've met me for longer than five seconds, you probably are aware that I have ADHD.  It was undiagnosed until just a few years ago; so much of my life is colored by it.  I only started meds for it a little over a year ago.  They have been a roller coaster in and of themselves.  While they … [Read more...]
