i got my adhd diagnosis the summer before college and started taking meds a few months ago. it's so relieving to just know shit wasn't all your fault, like i carry so much shame about losing track of time and procrastination and i always figured i just got that from my dad.

my deal now is i'm trying to work with my psych on maybe an adult autism diagnosis? which is its own bag of worms. i've always dealt with stuff straight off the DSM like echolalia, trouble with nonverbal communication, and 'specialized interests. its hard trying to talk to my parents about my childhood in that context bc it gets them so down on it, like they did something wrong for me, or maybe they just dont want a 'fucked up' son? but i just wanna know!
When discussions spiral into shit like this it's time to drop 250ug lsd and stare at a lake for a minute.

I'm not sure how to deal with an autism diagnosis. I know how you feel though cause when I was a kid I was diagnosed with a learning disorder (which is why i suspect I had add for most of my life) but working with your psych is the probably the best route. But I relate a lot to talking to your parents. You kinda have to keep telling them it isn't their fault and reassuring that you have a handle on this, this was kinda the way I was able to see a doctor about this.

Also do you think ADD/ADHD has an affect on skateboarding, I noticed the issues and symptoms of add when I kept trying tricks and not progressing and just getting frustrated. Like I can't turn my mind off and focus when I'm skating flatground.

that's weird, i almost feel like this is turning in a support group but i'm being tested for adhd next week after struggling to get anything done in university for four years straight. i thought i was just a bitch but now it turns out it might be adhd but now i still feel like a bitch for blaming my failure on some dumb disease thing. i feel like this view is terribly wrong but i can't help it
I want to express my attraction to Morgan Smith. He is such a cutie! I'd love to kiss him, hold hands with him, and snuggle in bed with him. I'm being completely sincere about this.

I think you're right on both. It isn't your fault, but it is your responsibility.

Thats one of the things that fucks me up about learning about add. Looking back on my past I realized that most of my mistakes especially at school weren't entirely my fault, but I still could have sat down and actually studied instead of dicking around playing video games and skating. I mean I still love skating 24/7, but playing battlefield doesn't help my future.

hm, reading that sent me into a pretty nice train of thoughts. in the end i figured i shouldn't dwell on the past too much but i definitely wanna make up for lost time now that i'm onto it. thanks, dude. that really helped for some reason. i'd give you one of the + 1 things if i could

"damn. old fart is doing that wallride switch. guess i'd better learn it regular."
Not stoked on being called old fart today at the skatepark by a 20 something year old whippersnapper.
Stoked on switch wallrides.

Stoked: Picked up the Lance Mountain Spitfire tee, some new Supras and a Bacon deck
Not Stoked on: My friend picked up the Gabriel Rodrigues reissue deck and I'm tempted to pick up new trucks and the deck

I bought two cellphones in America on my credit card... one for me, one for mom. And now, thanks to the complete breakdown of Brazilian government, the already high dollar is skyrocketing. The bill closes on the 25th, and lord knows how much I'm going to have to pay now. Fuck Temer.

Just found out that the girl that rejected me some months ago is actually lesbian, so I mean, that is AT LEAST a tie right?

I had sex with one of those lesbians that is so deep in it she wears zoo york gear. It was on a very very modern couch that I didn't think we were allowed to even sit on. What I'm saying here is that it doesn't matter, I still had sex and you still got rejected.

How'd you get to that? I didn't mean to hurt your feelings, just saying. I had sex with a lesbian and you got rejected by one. I've been rejected too, just not by a lesbian so it wasn't a relevant story. That's life man keep your head up.

Not to toot my own horn, but I totally had sex (and a loving, caring, if only a little off, personal relationship) too. Sexuality isn't a binary. If you appealed to her somehow, she could have made an "exception", in the same way that you could have made an "exception" for a guy who somehow caught your fancy. I know I have...

About crushing on lesbian girls: Hear the dulcet tones of Rivers Cuomo and rejoice in the fact that he, like, knows how that feels, man.



My current crush is super gay, too. I know she'll never see me as I see her, but I'm secretly happy for her making my saturday classes magical. The coolest thing about lesbians is that they look and act like they don't give a fuck about what people think, and that's one great quality for somebody to have.

I got picked as a juror for a murder trial

My dad got drafted for jury duty, or whatever you call it, right after the 2008 elections. He pretended to be asleep, so they didn't pick him, and told him to leave.

edit:
I have a job as an auditor at a small inn/motel. It doesn't pay much but I only have to do 30 minutes of actual work, out of 8 hours. The only problem is that I still fuck around, instead of doing side gigs for extra income. I would pile out when I didn't have a job and I would not do anything to better myself when I was working overtime. I'm in a perfect medium right now, but have poor time management skills. For a couple minutes, I considered checking out a book on time management, but I'm leaning towards a phone app or planner.

edit:
I just spent the past two hours on here.

I stayed back in town instead of going home to pay a credit card and keep my friend company for a while.
The pros: I can skate so much more, hang out with friends, I'm talking to this girl and I'm home alone with her when she comes over, and I don't have people's messes to clean up over and over again
Cons: It gets lonely (this is the first time I've been alone so long), it's in the high 90s low 100s, and I'm not sure if the girl really wants to do something or not but I appreciate the company.

As I was leaving the train together with my girlfriend, there apparently was a hot chick whos face lit up as she saw me, according to my girlfriend. I was pretty stoked because I did see the girl look really happy at me i just didnt know whatfor. Just bummed we didnt lock eyes in the moment itself.
But then again stoked that my girl was stoked and did see it, so overall stoked i guess
