Mental Health: ADD / ADHD Discoveries
|October 26, 2010||Filled under Life|
1. The cause to error and delayed goals is too much curiosity and creativity. If an ADDer just focused on the task at hand rather than being curious about â€œwhat else there isâ€ or â€œwhat could beâ€ they would be more likely to be accurate and reach goals in a timely manner. Therefore the ADD brain is a â€œfuturisticâ€ brain in that it is always looking at â€œwhatâ€™s nextâ€ but then getting overwhelmed by that since they know they have a hard time accomplishing things so instead of focusing on the task at hand, they may decide not to get much done at all therefore in some strange way â€œavoidingâ€ whatâ€™s next.
A) Planning: However, ADDers tend to be freedom seeking people who like to live on the edge yet know the consequences of those actions are not very appealing at all and so goes a revolving cycle of hatred and self loathing of self and/or others.
B) Distraction List: Create a list of “to do later”s when you find yourself doing something other than was planned.
2. An ADDerâ€™s brain is quite rebellious. Itâ€™s as if there are two people in an ADDerâ€™s head: One wants to do the right thing â€” to be discplined and make the â€œrightâ€ choices and the other is a rebellious teenager wanting to do what he or she wants when she wants or else.
3. It’s best for the ADDerÂ to choose their own strategies that work for their learning style so they will buy into and own those strategies. The best way of accomplishing that is to encourage an ADDer to create their own strategies — ones that are fun, flexible, and enjoyable.
4. ADDers need a lot of professional support in addition to a loving partner or parent. Single or ignored ADDers are less likely to get help and are more likely to decline in mental health. Professional support includes Personal Organizers to get their home and office life in order, Life Coaches to keep their home and office life in balance, Financial Helpers to keep ADDers on track, making the most of what they got and out of legal trouble, and finally Cognitive Therapists to â€œretrainâ€ the ADD brain to: 1. Discipline; 2. Strategize; 3. Structure; and 4. Socialize themselves successfully to their environment.
5. Many ADDers have similar physical mannerisms when they are having an â€œepisodeâ€. Some ADDers yawn when they are bored; however, I have noticed the â€œexactâ€ same type of yawn. Same goes with scratching, twitches, eye movements, and facial contortions. ADDers seem to move physically in the exact same way when experiencing an “episode”.
