I don't dream, but when I do...

by Jeanna
(Tampa, FL )

I have ADHD, ODD, and Bipolar. I hate having all of these things. I am also deaf in my left ear. I have a really bad nerve and anger management problems. I'm only 16 and was diagnosed with it at 13 1/2 but was told that I may have had it all my life because of all the symptoms I had when I was real young.

I am supposed to be taking Adderall, and some other things especially for my mood disorder and medications for sleep; but I am still kind of in denial. I don't want to have everything wrong with me! I even think I have OCD because I have a thing where I always have to have doors closed. I didn't tell the doctor because I don't want to be diagnosed with anything else so I can look like some crazy person.

To start my story; I told the doctor I don't dream, and he said its impossible and I just forget what I dreamed before waking up. That's not true! because I don't dream, but once in a blue moon I do. When I do, I remember everything. I remember having a dream that my sister (who was 16 at the time), got pregnant and went to the hospital while me and my mom weren't home.

That same day my mom picked me up from school and I told her my whole dream...in detail. About two days later, me and my mom came home and my sister wasn't there. Guess where she was? at the hospital....pregnant. My mom looked at me and said, "How did you know that was going to happen?" At the time, she wasn't even showing and you couldn't even tell she was pregnant...so I couldn't have just made it up.

It was REALLY a dream. If I were to tell you my personality (which you could probably already guess because I have ADHD, Bipolar, ODD, AND I'm partially deaf). But if I were to even start, I would keep you all day...because I am sometimes too confused at the way I am. I'm just me...I can't even explain it...

i know EXACTLY how you feel...
by: Anonymous

...and its so great to hear it from someone else. I feel like I've had so many problems since a youth (a short fuse, impulsiveness, etc.). I'm 26 now and only over the past year coming to terms with the kind of person that I am, and that the only problem with me (us) mentally... is ever considering it to be a problem.

Because I feel that I, and the others I'm only now reading about, have such issues with impulsive behavior is not that we are OCD. It is in all truth, we are far more "sensative" to the energy around us. There are 2 forces that operate this mode of thinking - impulse and intuition. One is physical and represents the immediate enviroment, the other is spiritual and represents the "all". Either way, we feel an inexplicable pull. Those who are more sensative in this area have greater difficulty distinguishing between the two. BUT ...there IS a difference. Which mode of thinking you choose to adopt is ultimately your own. But you are gifted, so embrace that thought. There are others like you, so listen to intuition and let a pureness of heart guide you.

ADHD is not a chemical inbalance
by: TJ Chambers


ADHD is not a chemical inbalance. I don't know every single situation but it comes down to either a toxic overload, a poor diet lacking in nutrition, protein, and minerals, or brain damage.

Most of us ADHD people have these spiritual giftings. I don't know why we do, but we do.

That's really neat that you had that dream. I have had similar experiences but it is usually when I am awake and I get a feeling or a thought and then bame it will happen. It happens to much to me to think it's a coinsidence. I'm not saying I'm spychic but maybe extremely intuitive. I also have ADHD and depression so maybe there is some link with people that have chemical imbalances that allows them to perceive things and know things others are not able to. Kind of cool really, aside from the fact that most pple don't believe us right!
