I just keep going & going & going.....
Ever feel like the Energizer bunny where you keep going & going & going & never stop? Seriously that has been my days lately. They are blending & I know I’ve slept a lil but it just seems like I barely have time to even sit & have breakfast. Yesterday was the longest day of the year & oh man I felt it. I’ve reached a new level in my life…See how much I can cram into one day. For example yesterday. I went to work & added 200 products online to Amazon.com, went to the bank, paid my Victoria Secret bill in the store, shopped in Express cuz I had a coupon, went to dinner with CJ & his mom over the river, went to view my friend Debra’s new apartment, read the submissions for my writer’s group, watched the Real housewives of New Jersey, & then somehow crawled into bed around 11pm. I might have A.D.H.D. because that’s an awful lot to do.
Actually I think I do have A.D.H.D., Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, because I can do all of that & more in one day. Telling CJ about what I do in a day makes his head spin. I actually made him a list of all the dramas in my life because it was too complex & I do too much in a day. I live like 5 lives in a day. I was called hyper-active when I was younger but I thought I grew out of it. Maybe I didn’t. Is it normal to do a thousand things in one day? Or is it just the job of being a young woman in her 20’s? You always will be pulled in a million directions & will have a half a million things on your checklist.
The only thing I wish would happen in my massive marathon running to complete all the things I have to do in a day is lose some weight. I’m starting to get the “Boyfriend Tire” as I’ve heard its referred to. Yeah know the 10 pounds you gain from all the eating out?? I haven’t had any time to go to the gym lately & I’m trying not to push it since its only been 3 weeks since my surgery but I’m seeing & feeling the difference. I walked up a hill in Piermont on Sunday night & was so winded I was huffing & puffing. I’ve been trying to not go out to eat as much but then he invited me with his mom so I was a goner. I couldn’t say no. I did order the chicken last nite but somehow everything I’ve been eating is just going to those problem areas. It’s stress too. Even if you eat nothing in a day stress will make you feel like an elephant. I’m going to do some crunches before I go to bed. It’s a start.
Maybe I should try to eat less sugar or red dye because that inflames A.D.H.D. so I won’t feel like I’m at a dead run all the time? I don’t know. I think Thursday after work I’m going to do some stuff for me & stay home a night. Get a manicure & then come home to clean. You gotta find some time to rest. Yeah I’ll think I’ll do that. It’s a plan. =)
Do any of you have A.D.D. or A.D.H.D? If you do how do deal with it? Are you always running around like a chicken without a head or have you found a way to calm yourself? Please share…
