Isn't the WEB great, we can often self-diagnose ourselves without even having to see a doctor. (I'm kidding of course but, lately I feel like I have ADHD. I've never been diagnosed with it, but I'm sure I do have some form of it and always have. I'm one of those people who thrives on routines, but every now and then I seem to hit a roadblock, and have trouble focusing.
They say some of the symptoms are:
- “zoning out” without realizing it, even in the middle of a conversation.
- extreme distractibility; wandering attention makes it hard to stay on track.
- difficulty paying attention or focusing, such as when
readingor listening to others.
- struggling to complete tasks, even ones that seem simple.
- (I say, these fall into that category as well....."staring out a window, or into space for what seems like hours on end." But let me not forget -- my favorite distraction -- staring, or holding at my beautiful granddaughter. -- I'm on vacation this week and spending time with her. (oh my is she a cutie and a good sleeper as well)
SO I thought if I at least blogged about what I read, and rated the books, I'd feel somewhat unburdened. Here are some of the books I read, but haven't reviewed:
- Carry the One; Carol Anshaw - 4/5 (ARC/audio)
- The Replacement Wife; Eileen Goudge - 3/5 (eBook)
- Say You're One of Them; Uwem Akpan - 4.5/5 (audio)
- Bringing Up Bebe; Pamala Druckerman - 5/5 (audio)
- Home; Toni Morrison - 4.5/5 (eBook)
- The Gingerbread Girl; Stephen King (current read - audio)
Maybe next month I'll have my act together a bit more. But seriously, if I'm still scattered in June, I'm using this ADHD as the reason once again.
