In my post ‘Trouble Concentrating and Staying Focused‘, I started with the following –
Common adult symptoms of ADD – Trouble concentrating and staying focused
- “zoning out” without realizing it, even in the middle of a conversation
- extreme distractibility; wandering attention makes it hard to stay on track
- difficulty paying attention or focusing, such as when reading or listening to others
- struggling to complete tasks, even ones that seem simple
- tendency to overlook details, leading to errors or incomplete work
- poor listening skills; hard time remembering conversations and following directions
In today’s post I start with the following –
My mind wanders and my thinking is fast and furious; therefore, trying to concentrate each day to accomplish any task can be difficult.
That is the ADD part of me, I become defensive when interrupted while trying to complete tasks. Gary will interrupt me and I become upset because I am already frustrated with the lack of concentration I am experiencing.
I look forward to trying to complete something, anything and Gary’s interruptions makes me feel he needs my attention at that very moment. This frustrates me as I am unable to complete my tasks and I take my frustrations out on him.
This is not good and I understand this; the frustration is within myself because of myself and I should not allow the outside interference to upset me.
In my post ‘Trouble Concentrating and Staying Focused‘, I ended with the following –
I try to stay focused on what I need to overcome, focus on listening when someone is talking to me, focus on completing tasks, focus on concentrating and focus on focusing.
I understand taking medications would diminish the symptoms and then I would not have such a challenge to take on. But without the challenge I will not become stronger to overcome the symptoms.
In today’s post I conclude with the following –
- The act or an instance of hindering, obstructing, or impeding.
- Something that hinders, obstructs, or impedes.
- The wave that forms when two or more waves of the same or different frequencies come together. The amplitude of the resulting wave will be either larger or smaller than the amplitude of the individual waves, depending on whether or not their peaks and troughs match up. ♦ If the peaks of the waves match up, the amplitude of the resulting wave will be larger than that of the individual waves.
