Hi I am Dani and I am....

  Time to get a little real.  It is not even a big deal, just something that I have been dealing with my entire life.  I am severely ADD.  It is really bad ha ha like if you could see my laptop right now, you would see that I have 15 pages up that I keep flipping through.  I can't help it.  I get bored way to fast so I look at lots of things to keep my mind entertained.  The ONLY time that my mind slows down is when I am reading a book.  I don't know what it is about books that slow my mind down.  Maybe it is because they are always changing, all books are different.

  I have lived for 31 years being ADD and I like myself.  I was advised recently to get on meds for my ADD....and I don't want to.  I won't get on meds.  I think that I am perfectly functional.  Yeah I am super scatter brained and I go from one topic to the next back to the original topic in a matter of minutes.  I also don't want to take anything that will change me.  I am a fun, outgoing, and crazy person and I think that meds would change that.  Actually I know that meds would change that. 

  When I was younger it was not the norm to diagnose kids with ADD and put them on meds.  So my parents didn't know there was anything wrong with me.  They just knew that I could not stay focused on my school work.  They were told that I was immature for my age, which may have been true, but it was the ADD that was the actual issue.  Because of this I am super super impulsive!  Ha ha if I see it and I want it...I don't even think about it I just get it......Which is a problem by the way.  And if you have read my blog you will notice that I don't stay on track very well...I jump all over the place.  It has taken me over an hour to write this because I keep going to Pinterest, FB, texting, and reading other blogs.  LOL I can't help it!!

  Ok I think that is all I feel like boring ya'll with right now!  I hope that ya'll have a great Thursday!!

Dani, my husband is the same way! He has just learned to live with it because he doesn't want to be on meds. I am still learning how to deal with it on the otherhand, there are times I get frustrated with him, but I know its not his fauly so I never say anything or get really mad. I usually just ask him again or if its him aski g me something for the 4th time I will just smile and answer while in my mind I am HELLOOO YOU JUST ASKED ME THAT!!! I wouldn't change him for the world though and we both know the meds would so I am just going to keep doing what I am doing!
