    WOOT WOOT WOOT ^5s all over the place!!!

    So glad this thread is still going strong – makes me happy every time I visit! I’ve definitely got to get back in here more often! I

    I don’t make it in here so often because I’m in organizing mode most days, and I want to keep it going, but I definitely need to find time for the good old stuff – my workouts, which used to be my escape from organizing, have gotten the back-burner treatment; need to get those muscles back! – and this forum!

    Spent some time last night getting caught up with the posts in various threads. Could that be what inspired me to get some long-put-off tasks done?

    OK, at least one of them wasn’t my doing – my boss called me – but it meant I finally got some info from her that I needed for my calendar, so I’m still happy! So many work questions settled – hooray! Now I know what I still need to do to get ready.

    This one’s all my doing though: grabbed an accordion file that sat in our home office for who knows how long and went through the whole thing. Pitched a bunch of papers, put the financial stuff in an envelope for hubby to deal with (and probably discard) – most everything was from 2002!

    One thing I did NOT pitch was my husband’s Social Security card, which was sitting in there with all these grocery store receipts! Holy cow! Put it in our safekeeping place and e-mailed him to tell him where it was.

    The entire thing was made so much more pleasant by two things:

    – The whole “keep or toss” business went SO much faster! Thank you new perspective and meds!

    – I had a lovely spot to work in. One of my organizing projects was to clean up our sun room. It’s been our kids’ playroom and for most of its life you couldn’t even walk across it; you had to ballet-dance. Finally chucked out a bunch of stuff (old coloring books, anyone?) and found better homes for the rest (Lego drawers! Yay!) and it is so much nicer to look at – and be in! I’m looking at sunshine on fall foliage and just feeling so pleased – and relieved – to reclaim this space as something beyond a dumping ground with a layer of dust on top!

    Felt so good about the papers project that I then went online and settled up the overdue fines on all the library cards in the family. Major ouch there, but so much better to have that behind me!

    I’m thinking I might have to start a new thread about how to do libraries when you have ADD. I always check out way too many books, renew them to the limit (nine weeks, for crying out loud), and still manage to return at least half of them after the due date. It’s almost like we are renting books, rather than borrowing them!…No, no – new thread…Going there now!

    Well done to you Quizzy! Cripes, I feel like I was there giving you a hand! 😆 Um, I don’t have any victories of my own to share at the moment, except maybe for beating some psycho-granny in a bitter and gruelling marathon session of kamikaze scrabble a few days ago! Does that count? Can’t remember what the end scores were, something like 9-2! She won the first two games and trash talked me, so I got mad and knuckled down to put her to the sword! 😆

    I’m riding my bike to work most of the time. Something that makes me feel sane in this insane life I am living!

    (Hi to you all, and nice to see some familiar people are still around)

    THE HIGH FIVE CORNER!!! I FORGOT WHAT IT WAS CALLED!! I was looking all over the place for it too!!!

    HELLOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!

    Allovertheplace – WOW!! I can relate to you so much in having your accomplishment being a shower, dressed and meds. Most of my days off I can’t even get that done! KUDOS! This really made me feel better! Not like such a nutter.

    My high five is quite a big one. Lately I have been very “down”. “Down” as in sleeping ALL the time. Sleeping, drinking my whiskey, not showering, not cleaning, not eating or eating waaaaaaaaaay too much, not caring… sleeping some more. My family and ADD coach were all very concerned. Thinking I was depressed but I KNEW I wasn’t depressed. I was just TIRED and had no motivation what so ever. Ive been depressed before, and this time was different. I wasnt having the thoughts that normally occur when im depressed like “Im a bad wife. Im a horrible mom. Everyone would be better with out me blah blah blah”. I drug my sorry arse to the walk in clinic to get blood work done to rule out I wasnt deficient in anything. All I knew is that I WASNT depressed. If my blood work came back normal… well then I would consider the possibility. PLUS I already take antidepressants…

    Got the results back (this was a week ago) and turns out I have hypothyroidism and am low on iron! AH HA!! SEE!! I knew I wasn’t depressed! It also explains why I HATE the cold so much. Why I put on weight so flipping fast. The doctor I had was so nice about it. He said “Women with a hypothyroid tend to be chubby and eat a little bit more…” hahahaha I have always been “chubby” never HUGE (except when I was pregnant). But anyways, thats another story. Ive been taking thyroid meds for a week now and I can not believe the difference! I have motivation again! I am in complete awe that I actually CARE again and that lacking in a hormone can affect the way you feel so much!

    So yaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay that I went to the Doctor! Boooooooooo that I have to take medication for the rest of my life… and when the world collapses and I have no way to get thyroid meds I will die sooner than most! booooooo! hahah I better find out where TSH comes from… BESIDES the thyroid… Or I will become a thyroid hunter! MWA HA HA HA HAAAAAAAA! I dont think that would work. Im hooped! hahahahahaha

    This is a really cool place! My high five is working out at home to improve myself…I do martial arts and if anybody here does this, you know how difficult it can be…but my life has always been a challenge..it can be frustrating and confusing at times but that’s okay. life isn’t meant to be easy. I did my workout whilst on my medication, which is great for me because I usually end up training at night after its worn off.

    Today I had to give a 15 minute speech in my Interpersonal Communications class and I think I did very well considering I didn’t really practice.

    I’m getting an A in said speech class so far. My professor is really motivating me.

    I just recently learned that my boss, has ADD too. It’s really nice (that’s not the word I’m looking for but I can’t think of what other word to use) to have that connection, that interpersonal relationship with my boss on  deeper level. He’s been very supportive of me and more open with me than he has been since he got here at my job 6 months ago.

    I usually weigh myself once a month, at the end of the month.  But certain items of clothing have been feeling so loose lately, that my curiosity got the better of me this morning.

    When I stepped on the scale, I discovered I’ve now lost 26.4 lbs. since October 29th.  (Don’t forget that .4!)  This means that I weigh less now, than I have in about 15 years!

    (If I can just keep this up…)

    It sure seems to support the argument that there’s a strong link between ADHD & obesity, doesn’t it?

    When I see my diabetes specialist, on June 6th, she might not recognize me.  I’m pretty sure she won’t recognize my blood sugar levels, which are a lot closer to “normal” than they’ve been since I started seeing her.
