Entries on ADD from happilymyself

The following two bits are from happilymyself. I need to do something with them but I'm not sure what. I'll get back to this tonight.
"Try for a moment to imagine being a child with ADD sitting in a classroom and trying to do what you are being told, all the time. If you're having trouble with this one...might I suggest you turn on three radios on different stations in the messiest room of the house, just after supper. Drink 10 cups of coffee and have your mother-in-law call you on the telephone. Now try to do your taxes. Oh, and you're not allowed to get up from your chair for at least a half hour. "
From http://education.indiana.edu/cas/tt/v3i2/jamie.html:
"ADHD kids have two kinds of time...plenty and none."

Wow. That makes so much sense! I go from never ever having enough time to even start on all the things I want to accomplish and learn -- to sitting around unable to make myself interested in anything -- BORED.

It's actually one of the problems I've been specifically trying to address lately, and one of the points of all these lists.
