About me

Amused ticket 2

Image via Wikipedia

Faster than a speeding bullet, able to leap from one unrelated subject to another in a second, flying past giant dust bunnies in the corner of every room.  Rebel without a cause and out to challenge anyone and anything, I have a very real desire/need to help others with ADD/ADHD and all the obstacles created by society that make us feel different.

I like who I am.  I want everyone to embrace who they are with enthusiasm.

This blog will hopefully bring all who read it to the realization that the only way to live their lives is with the understanding that they have a uniqueness only they can bring to the world.

Life is full of wonder and beauty.  See it.  Live it.  Love it.

And don’t forget to laugh.

(new description written March 12, 2012)

Able to amuse myself endlessly with a stream of unrelated thoughts, willing to share the diversity in the hopes someone will find something to amuse them as well. I might even have a few tips that will help others with their own demons, ADD symptoms and SPD relief. I have an optimistic nature, always learning about anything and everything that catches my eye, am fiercely Canadian and love/will promote all things Canadian, would rather spend my days browsing the internet and I recycle, reuse and recreate. I love my family, my pets, nature and my country. The moon, stars and water guide me through life, always constantly changing. I have never run across anything that I wanted to be an expert on. I use humour for everything and have been known to utter completely inappropriate words and sentences during stressful situations and circumstances. I can find humour in ANY situation (trust me, this has been tested).
If it weren’t for my deepness I would be superficial.

ADD and SPD do not define me, however, those 2 things have definitely shaped me and how I have reacted to experiences in my life.  It is my strength of character that has allowed me to use all of who I am in everything I do.  Never give up, always believe in yourself and just be the best you can be with what you have. Never, ever beat yourself up for what you can’t do.  ONLY celebrate what you can do…you’ll be so busy celebrating you won’t have time to beat yourself up, I promise:)

Do this always

I know, I know, easier said than done.  Whatever:)

  1. Hi, I came across your great blog all about ADD recently. I work for a website called WISH (Women’s International Summits for Health) and you can find us at http://www.wishsummits.com . We host regular online summits around all things pertaining to women – health, family life, relationships, etc. These summits are free to all, and always remain free.

    Recently we hosted a summit all about ADD/ADHD/Autism and it was pretty awesome! Seeing the work you’re doing around this, too, we’d love to share a copy of the e-book that we created from the summit with you. Would you be up for that? Our ebook contains all the written transcripts of the recordings, and plus some amazing bonus material.

    These calls (and the ebook!) are still available for anyone who wishes to listen. They can be found at http://www.wishsummit.com/add , and as I said, they are free! All one has to do to access them is sign up.

    Please let me know, and I’ll send you the link to our ebook! We’d love for people to get to know us, and if you like what you see/read, then by all means spread the word! (And if you REALLY like what you see, and would like an affiliate link, that can be arranged as well – you will receive 30% of all sales sold under your link)

    Thanks so much!
