WHEN YOU’RE ON ADHD

I used to make videos like this when I was running out of time… and sometimes it took hours just to make a small video like the one below. Of course I always started making them when real important things needed to be done by morning. 

Somehow my brain kept telling me to make this or that and made me believe it was absolutely necessary before doing, you know, the important stuff like typing reports for work that was already due for a week.
Luckily ADHD gave me the power to bullshit my way out of things, even when shit got super overdue.  It’s not my fault they missed the memo I never wrote.

HIGHLY SENSITIVE PERSONS

HSP (Highly Sensitive Person)

Highly Sensitive Persons are generally more sensitive to impressions of the outside world than other peoples. As some people are more intelligent than others, some are more sensitive than others. These characteristics can naturally also go together. Every moment of the day we make impressions through our senses (hearing, seeing, smelling, tasting and feeling).              An HSP therefore does this more intensely than the average person. High sensitivity is a property that can be used positively. For example, due to high sensitivity, you can signal hazards more quickly, be aware that someone is lying, perceive small differences in nuance and enjoy art or music more intensely.

The following statements are characteristic of Highly Sensitive Persons. They:

  • perceive in a more detailed, subtle and more intense way
  • are stimulated by things that others do not seem to notice
  • become saturated more quickly by (certain) stimuli
  • are more than average affected by, for example, nature, art or music
  • philosophize like and much and have a rich inner experience
  • like it and need it to spend more time alone
  • are often dutiful and anticipating the needs of others
  • suffer from mood swings and strong emotions
  • are at greater risk of depression, chronic fatigue and addictions
  • are too caring for others (and too little for yourself)
  • are perfectionistic
  • have a strongly developed intuition
  • feel overloaded by impressions and are afraid to make mistakes.
  • are sensitive to noise, light, heat, crowds, the feeling of other people.
