The last week, it almost seems as if life is coming to a stand-still. Should I be worried? Should I do something about it? These are some questions I explore in this post.
My 37th birthday was a bit of a rough day, and it helped guide the words for this post on things I still find myself facing after working on them for most of my life…

I’ve been taking medication for my ADHD for about a month now (if I don’t forget, oh the irony!) By now, I’ve learned quite a bit already about what it can and can’t do for me. It’s a helpful tool, but it’s not the fix-all for all my symptoms.
