Me and my ADHD brain

Once upon a time, I was in the office of the elementary school therapist talking about our then 5-year-old child. She asked, “Does she have ADHD?” I said, “Nah, if she has it, I have it.” The therapist waited politely for a beat or two. Then: “Oh, riiight!”

Since then, I have realized the Editorial Board is perfect for my ADHD brain. I can go where it wants to do, and my readers, for the most part, come right along with us. You have to understand how liberating this is. I feel so free the other day I wrote a poem!

I’m not sure I believe in fate, but fate is making a very convincing claim. I was meant to do this. The downside, though, is I was meant to bug you. My goal is reaching 1,000 subscribers. I’m now at 796! So close! Please help by becoming a subscriber today!
