    The more I think about this.

    ..The more it just makes me lose opportunities and seeking help when I seriously need it. The hardest part of having all of this, Is the fact that my dad always says " Get over yourself" "You did this to yourself" and I love this one "You're just making **** up". When I ask for...

    I think my depression is getting worse.

    I cry, yet I feel numb and somewhat empty. My moods are more volatile and varied. I have more anger now too. Ugh I'm a mess, but it could be worse I guess.

    Adhd And Hypnosis

    I have noticed something recently. The link between hypnosis and ADHD seem to be strong, based on my own observation. There are different causes to the condition, but one of the interesting, alleged causes is abuse. Verbal and emotional abuses, can lead to a number of mental...

    so frustrated, that I literally want to hurt something... hurt someone... so I do. Some days I get so mad, at the littlest of things, that all I can see is red. So I bleed. Because some days, when the anger, the frustration and the hate takes over, red is the only thing that...

    ...no H....its just my brain. They call it ADHD - Primarily Inattentive Type. And I would swear it didn't hit me full scale until I was 45. That's when I got tested and found out I perform at about 20% of normal for some concentration tasks. That test with the color words printed...

    I only recently realized I have ADHD.

    For example, I can literally forget something I bought a minute prior. Basically if I don't have Pen-and-Paper or a keyboard or phone handy I'll most likely forget to perform a task. The funny thing is I can remember really mundane things In Detail, like some unimportant comment...
