me, an autonomous adult in college: *looks up tips for managing adhd on a deadline*
every single result: AS A PARENT to help YOUR CHILD WITH ADHD monitor YOUR CHILD’S behavior and reward HIM for doing work because CHILDREN WITH ADHD need constant support-
I’m not even exaggerating.
As far as I can guess, we’re supposed to either “grow out of it” and become perfect facsimiles of neurotypical people, or else assumed to be so impaired we’re incapable of living independently or using the internet. That we might be adults reading this shit doesn’t occur. The only people who actually talk about ADHD to people with ADHD are … people with ADHD.
Something I learned talking to other adults with adhd is to get into routines - but not like, wake up, exercise, breakfast, then work sort of routines; but more
Wake up to your phone on the other side of the room so you’re forced to get out of bed to grab it and do your morning scroll for social media
Have your meds in a visible area like in the fridge next to the milk or juice that you drink every morning or beside the coffee pot so you take them with your morning coffee
When you want to do homework, tidy your space, get a drink, put shoes on, then start work - do this every time until your brain registers the physicality of that routine of tidy, drink, shoes to equal ‘work now’
If you have a pet, feed them around the time you want to have dinner each night - that animal will register the routine and help you stick to it.
Want to remember something but apps, reminders, and notes don’t seem to work? Write them on your bathroom mirror or buy a whiteboard and stick it in your kitchen. And dont write in black - write in your favourite colours,or in multiple colours, and don’t deny yourself the chance to be silly with the whiteboard. If you designate it a work only space, you’ll never use it - so draw on it, write quotes on it, be silly with friends. The more you use your whiteboard, the more likely you are to read the important reminders on it. :)
People with ADHD need routine but neurotypical routines don’t work for us because a lot of NT routines inherently rely on having the executive function to get moving - we don’t have that. We need mental triggers to spark that, something that grounds us in the moment and helps spark the intention into productivity.
Also, hack for motivation to clean?
Set a timer. How many things can you clean up in the space of five minutes. Race that clock. Get free serotonin in beating a timer while also maintaining your space.
You’ve heard of “its not misgendering to call a trans woman dude its gender neutral!” Now get ready for
its all a matter of setting up boundaries and being clear about them. also being confident in your identity in a way that isn’t impacted by acts of misgendering that aren’t done in ill intent. take care peace and love
Didn’t ask ur opinion weirdo
Just finished rewatching spiderverse and the ending credits are giving me war flashbacks from the last time I worked at a theater
I know there is never gonna be a revolution and that people will never "eat the rich" because everytime somebody is like "i think this bigot should have something bad happen to them because they are a bigot" some nerd comes out of the basement to be like "um how can you wish bad things to someone, they are human, humans make mistakes, we are all one race, the human race, be kind" like they can't be mean to a fascist youtuber there's never gonna be a revolution
Youtube has existed for less than 1% of human history. I’m not saying a revolution will come tomorrow (it won’t), but someone defending shitty youtubers isn’t actually a statement about the future.
It IS shitty though dont get me wrong, mock those fuckers.
We should go back to that time Pewdiepie got robbed and then like. Make that a monthly thing
why? because he has more money than you? because he disagrees with you politically? because he made some jokes?
fuck off with that
Because he sucks bro
so you just want his stuff to get taken cause you don’t like him? not sure why expected anything better from your sort
Not a vibe. Everyone’s a person. Of course eat the rich but not vibing.
Well youre wrong about him being a person because he specifically is not. Vibe by yourself
I mean the man has definitely made mistakes, but he is still a person, and a person who genuinely wants to just make people happy, and if he messes up once, twice, or a hundred times it doesn’t change his intentions or his worth
Promoting fascist authors isnt “messing up” , neither is saying slurs on stream or making jokes about being a nazi
Well i think youre wrong because pewdiepie should be robbed
I thought it was really great of him to get robbed like that. He did so much to make a few very specific persons very very happy.
Can you shut the fuck up please like
Imagine trying to justify saying “this person is not a human and deserves to relive a traumatizing event”
i know right its crazy how he could be so buddy buddy with neo-nazi holocaust deniers like that. hope someone fucking robs him again
Yeah, I think ops wrong too, I think pewdiepie should get robbed daily.
after work i went to the pharmacy in our store to get meds and while i was talking to them this lady came up behind me and kept going “excuse me” and i just ignored her because IM GETTING A PRESCRIPTION FROM THE PHARMACY YOU SHOULDNT BE SO FUCKING CLOSE TO ME and then while I was literally talking to the pharmacist this person GOT IN FRONT OF ME and was like EXCUSE ME I NEED HELP and I replied with I AM TRYING TO GET SOME FUCKING MEDICATION and she was like oh im sorry and she shuffled away I FUCKING HATE CUSTOMERS
The paranoia and obsession underlying this ideology is really something
I think this illustrates really well how trans exclusionary radical feminism actually reinforces gendered expectations of what a man/woman should look like, sound like, act like, etc. and leads to stringent policing of gender along hegemonic, patriarchal norms rather than anything liberating or radical.
