    Personality Trait Or Symptom Of Add?

    It's a fact that I have ADD.It has become glaringly and blatantly obvious to all my friends and family...I was in denial until recently when all the similarities and symptoms were too much to ignore.Anywho, I tend to be impulsive (more often than not, I think) and have been for...

    Feel The Rush

    I think that in my case, my impulsiveness is bravery to others. Although they don't know that I usually don't acknowledge the pros and cons of the situation because the rush of the moment is exhilarating.

    I Can't Help It

    Like when you see a sweater, and it's not a paticularly amazing or expensive sweater, ubt you just think, "I need that." And so you buy it. And at the time, it feels perfectly justifiable. Or when you don't feel like going home and you figure, "I'll just go spend...

    I Can't Allow My Life to Be So Planned

    I need to know that I will be able to do what I want, when I want, as far as it's possible. And while this is ultimately fun, it has effects on my work and other life-managements. I have a hard time making plans stick, and honestly don't believe in planning too much. Some even...

    Impulse

    I get the urge to do things immediately knowing that if I wait I will either lose interest or forget about it. In the course of these past six months I have made several life altering decisions on what I guess could be called impulse. But not one of those would I take back. I...

    if I wasn't so impulsive? Pretty damn boring. Sure some bad things have happened but I have learnt from these experiences and grown to be the person I am.

    Just Do It Already

    that is what I think most days. I get an idea and go with it.  Life is too short to just sit and wait for things to happen.  I think I need to go and do........experience as much as I can while I can.  I don't want to look back on my life and wonder "what if".  I want to...

    Adhd Impulsive

    While many people might think about doing things, I do them without forethought, planning, or if I get just the urge. About a year ago I wanted to meet someone I met online who was living in Pennsylvania. So I fueled up my car and drove there. Did I mention I lived in Colorado?

    Impulsiveness Is What Makes My Life Fun

    I will not deny, I could have seriously messed up my whole life with impulsive acts. And some of what I've done has left permanent scars on myself and others, be it mentally or physically. But being impulsive is what makes my life fun. It's as if I look for drama to create, for...

    I am beyond impulsive. Always have been. I've never tried to be this way. I get an idea and that's it. I am off and running with it before the thought of consequence enters my mind. Maybe it's an age thing and I'll grow out of it but i am old enough to know better yet that doesn...
