[Rant] Exams, future & MD -- (Sometimes I hate it).

Posted on June 27, 2011 at 6:30am 7 Comments

I've had MD since I can remember and never saw it as a torment, just something that made me different. Of course for many of those years I believed I had ADHD. . . I only started seeing (and accepting) the negative effects MD has in my life after seeing forums and learning what MD was (and that I had it).

 

It always came to be as a sort of  'blessing' to have the capability to imagine such vivid things. It's so much fun! I'm never bored and - wow - I can see so much! I love to…

Hello,

I'm Ana, a sixteen year-old, and before today I firmly believed I had a weird variation of ADD, and was somewhat gifted with an overly vivid imagination. However, after googling my symptoms (something I, to some extent, regret) I found out I might have MD. Actually, I'm pretty certain of it . . .

It became "just ADD" because people got to know it and got used to the idea.  That's all.  This is an exciting new condition where people get addicted to their own creativity.  Yes, it can have some horrible negative consequences, but so what?  That doesn't make it a disease.  We're not destined to have a down spiral.  We have to just be aware, so we can keep it in check.  

 

If you think about it, it's pretty exciting.  We get to be part of bringing a new condition to the psychological community.  How many people can say that?  Countless people are probably living like us but in shame.  We can be some of the first ones to bring it to light and help them.  We can educate doctors, educators, and the general public.  It's pretty exciting.  If you know any psychology nerds, they could be crazy impressed.  I've met some.  They were sorta jealous.  Lol.  For me, it's been a huge problem, but now it's turning into a mission, and I sorta feel empowered and special.  "Normal" people are jealous of "crazy" ol' me because I get to make a difference.  You can make a difference too.  Being "normal" is so "yesterday".  :)
