Repeating a good comment from Ram. I do love the comments.
“I guess we’re all guilty of thinking about what could have been. I certainly am, as I dropped out of college to take the hard road of becoming a poorly paid pastry baker.
But then I think of what might have been, had I discovered my ADHD when I was in college – and had I stuck with it. I might’ve graduated and never have moved away from my homelandm to Germany, which would almost certainly make me end up with a dead-end job (which is so much the case in Portugal)
Instead I came to Germany. I suffered many years until I was diagnosed (jumped from job to job because I couldn’t stand people, went from one bad situation to the next one) but then I was diagnosed. I got a handle on me more than ever before and although I’m not 100% happy with my life, I got a grip on myself enough to try and change the things I can change.
My life might’ve been great. It might also have been worse. This is my reality now, the reality I have to live. And I strive to make the best of it. It’s all anyone can do. 🙂
As always, thanks for a lovely post.
Confession: I’m a bit tipsy. I had a strong beer with my dinner (don’t have to work tomorrow) and I’m enjoying my tipsyness. It usally makes want to hug the world! (more so than usual, anyway) 🙂”
Ram is on a good path, making her life better. We grieve what we think could’ve been, but who knows? Occasional tipsy may be a good thing, recharging the brain if it doesn’t kill too many cells – I don’t know for sure. If it makes you want to hug the world it’s probably good.
Sad Story O the Day:
You may have read where I went to get my car to drive to work and my battery was dead. I think I had shut the door on the seat belt. So I had to take my wife’s car. That worked fine for me, not so good for her. So I drove to work, had a good day, came out to drive home. Got in my wife’s car. The battery was dead.
I was unfamiliar with her car’s control system and possibly I’d left the lights on. But knowing I have ADHD, I’d done the smart thing and after I got out, I’d turned around and looked at the car to make sure none of the lights were on. Still, it’s possible.
Two dead batteries in one day. That may be some kind of record, even with ADHD.
Quote O the Day:
Yes, that’s right, ADHD.
