Awareness?

Apparently

October

Is

ADHD

Awareness

Month

Aware

Of

This

I

Wanted

To

Write

A

Poem

Which

I

Have

Been

Trying

To

Start

All

Day

But

Everything

Got

In

The

Way

Twitter

Cleaning

Worrying

Emailing

Shopping

Worrying

Worrying

But now suddenly I feel an urge to say it all

Quickly

As fast as the ideas come into my head

Being a fifty two year old woman with ADHD is like having the Duracell bunny in your head drumming and drumming and making you keep going with all the things that you need to do in the week to ensure that you keep up the image of being a competent professional because actually you are and you love your job with a passion that makes others gasp because you want to get it right for EVERY child and that drives you through to Friday night…

When suddenly Saturday comes

And you wake up and realise that you had forgotten once again that you have ADHD

And either your husband tells you that you need to stop and rest

and you get cross with him

but then realise he is right

Or your body tells you

By refusing

To

Carry

On.

And

Everything

Dis

Com

Bob

Ulates.

Until

Monday.

You hope.
