Dealing with an adult ADHD diagnosis doesn’t come without it’s fair share of skeptics, dissenters, and true-blue dill weeds.
Normally, pun intended, I respond to comments by giving a weak grin and a shrug, perhaps a haha or noncomittal murmur to the remarks tossed my way if I’m feeling energetic.
Because I like having a calm day, that’s just how I shake it. Oh and I like being injury free.
Make no mistake, although I might be grinning outwardly, I’m hoping the karma fairy visits you soon. And that she’s wearing combat boots.
October is ADHD Awareness month. And here’s to all the times I’ve not said anything but should have. I’m balancing the scales between haha and “oh yeah?!” today.
- ADHD? Wait, do adults even get that?
Oh yeah, adults can have ADHD. Did you know adults can have chronic rudeness too? I know, what a crazy world this is. Who makes up these rules?
- Adult ADHD…is that when you yell “squirrel!” all the time?
Hmmm…Let’s find out. Pretend you’re a squirrel and run away.
- I’m so buzzed on coffee that I can’t stop talking…heh…kind of like you. You know, like before your meds are on board.
Oh no, you blew past funny and ended up in I-Just-Showed-My-Assville. Better turn around.
The above are the only three examples that come to mind, thanks to learning a new job and acclimating to second shift without crashing my system on massive amounts of caffiene.
I’m sure you have many other examples and great one liners to follow them. So let me know about them.
