I like how this sub, other than mocking our disorder to make it more bearable, also provides occasional information snacks that release a chemical feeling of accomplishment in my brain by learning something new.
Information snacks is my new favourite term ever and I will be stealing it
It was relating to very specific memes on this sub that got me to talk to my doctor and ultimately get a proper diagnosis and useful meds, after "you're depressed, try this random serotonin based treatment" went really badly a few times.
ik the memes are so relatable theyre scary
makes me feel less weird
And attention goes to many things is so much more true than having a deficit disorder.
But if the neurotypical want to call out the Deficit they should name it DDD Dopamine Defecit Disorder...
Sorry that thought needed to go out of my brain right now😀

*walks up to disability center* "I am diagnosed with Triple-D 😎😎😎"
I'd feel so cool.
"I am 3D", said no waifu ever (this is a total shitpost but my unmedicated ass' caffeine is wearing off)
I'd like something along the lines of 'Attention influence disorder'
You need aid?
I live in NZ and I have an exam today, I have to write three essays for it and it's 9am and I'm still in bed, it's pissing down with rain outside. Thanks OP this has motivated me to get out of bed and get some more study done before my exam
If only there was an easy way to point ADHD hyperfocus at the tasks we need to get done, you'd have all those essays completed by now.
I had to write the essays during the exam unfortunately! I managed to answer 2 out of 3 essay questions so that's a pass thankfully
I like that.
I read the definition and felt instantly relieved. Is that weird?
It saddens me that I will never be able to pronounce this correctly because I can't roll my Rs
That doesn't help me roll my Rs
The long trilling R's are definitely hard. It's one of those things where you get better with practice, but if you focus on trying to do it, it doesn't work. :P
If you're a native English speaker, I've found the best way to get your tongue in the right position is to say 'tree' like 'tlee' (starting with a hard T sound if you'd normally say it like 'chree'). You get this little skip when your tongue tip hits the roof of your mouth that is close enough for a mini-roll.
I dunno. I'm thinking more like titty. But for the "tt"part having your tongue slightly behind the bumpy ridge behind your teeth. If I, a native English speaker, say "tlee", my tongue will flatten out which will prevent that flick sound. Hard to sound out lol.
That's more or less what happens when I try it now, but it always just feels like an L. It's been something I've tried to learn many times but I just make no progress. Incidentally when I was a kid, the L sound was by far the sound I took the longest to learn. Maybe my tongue is just weird?
I can roll my Rs and I'm still struggling
*cries in white person*
I like the Percy Jackson premise that people with ADHD are demigods.
Mmm, Aroreretini is my favourite cocktail
This is so wholesome!! <3
more accurate than "attention deficit"
Well hello there fellow aroreretinians!
Ah fuck, not my heart feeling something warm and fuzzy for once
This is nice
Is this real though? Can someone confirm that this is not just a meme but an actual fact!
Because I want to tell everyone but am deathly afraid of quoting stuff I see in a nice little meme box
