About Me

Hi, my name is Amelia, I am a blogger, and I have ADHD. (Should there be an ADHD Anonymous?) What does this tell you about this blog? As Paul Simon sings, "I have a short little span of attention." My interests change all the time - currently, mine are crocheting, sewing, organizing living spaces, and putting planners together. 

In addition to ADHD, I have Fibromyalgia - diagnosed in 2005 - and all that it entails, Major Depressive Disorder, Anxiety, SAD, PTSD, Essential Tremor, and a deteriorating spine. I am officially disabled, but that does not mean that I do not want to get myself out there. I cannot always leave my sanctuary, but I can still connect to the outside world through my blog.

I am the mother of three adult sons and have two beautiful grandchildren. For much of my sons' youth and even into their adulthood, I was a volunteer for many community organizations, the longest of which was Girl Scouts of the United States of America (GSUSA). Many of my Girl Scout years were spent as a trainer for other volunteers.

I did things a little backwards, though. I married and had my children young, then I started college when my marriage ended at 47-years-old. I received an Associate of Science degree in Accounting, a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration (concentrating in Accounting), and a Master of Business Administration (concentrating in Human Resource Management). Much of my Girl Scout trainer experience came in quite handy in graduate school.

This blog is driven by my attention deficit hyperactive disorder. Although the physical hyperactivity went away a long time ago, the mental hyperactivity is still there. The hardest part of writing My ADHD Life is deciding which of the many topics running through my head should I write about every day. 

I am grateful to my readers and the time spent reading what is written each day. Please feel free to contact me at myadhdlifeisfun@gmail.com if you have any questions about any posts.
