Other People No, I don't mean to imply that you've got actual other personalities in your head. That would be something altogether different than ADHD. And I don't mean that you hear voices, like schizophrenics do. I guess what I do mean is that your head is always crowded with other people's opinions and judgements of you. Does that make sense? Or is it just me? Is someone calling a therapist right now? Cause really, I'm OK. That ADHD Thing In general, those of us with ... Read More about How Many People are Living in Your Head?
Yep, that's me. Brenda Nicholson, in real life. No makeup, no filters, not even a shower. (Hey - I'm being real here.) For a long time, this blog, and everything associated with it, has been neglected.

My daughter Sarah and I were at the store the other day and I happened to be looking at the magazines. There were two I was interested in - both had the topic of mindfulness on the cover. And then Sarah said, "Mindfulness. I am so sick of hearing about that." I get it. Sarah has a full time job, an almost 6 year old, and she goes to school part time, plus she does all the things we women tend to do - clean the house, cook the meals (plan the meals and buy the groceries), and on and ...
