Only One? With ADHD?
I went to the library to pick up a book. We have a wonderful library. It has a good selection, they will hold books that are checked out, and they order on inter-library loan for books they don’t have.
They emailed me that one of my books on hold was ready. It was by one of my favorite authors, Annie Dillard, . So I walked over to pick it up (I love being able to walk to the library. Getting out of doors is a good thing for ADHD.)
I got my held book and then wandered the stacks. I love books.
I came home with my Dillard book, plus; a book on the brain; a book of poetry by Borges with the Spanish poem on one page and the English translation on the opposite; a book on anger by Thich Nhat Hanh; and Quantum Mechanics for Dummies, which looks very difficult (I told the librarian they need “Quantum Mechanics for Dummies” for Dummies.)
It was too much to carry by hand so the librarian gave me a free cloth bag. That was very nice. Even though it was too heavy, I managed to get home with it all.
I went to the library to pick up a book.
When we ADHDers do something, we really do it. We really, really, really do it.
Know what I mean?

I can eat one piece of dark chocolate and stop. That is not true of anything else. Well, OK, it has to be very dark chocolate.
The Really, Truly Final Irrelevant Note O the Day:
I put too many things on this post. See what I’ve been talking about?
