We seem to be multi creative, but so disorganized. I have drawings for projects I want to make
all over my house and studio. Idea after idea seems to fall on the same mental pile and its
hard to finish one project. Clutter is my middle name. And yes it would be nice if I could work
in an accounting office and make some money, instead of being a starving artist. But art is my life.
And accounting is too mentally confusing for me. Structure is confusing for someone with ADD.
: Hi there. I don't always check this notice board. But here I am and I decided to have a look at your message. I have diagnosed ADHD and I also class myself as multi-creative (when I make the time, in between getting side-tracked by other things). Like yourself, I am extremely disorganised, I play guitar, piano, drums, some wind instruments and I sing when I find the confidence. I have literally hundreds of "would-be lyrics to songs" all over the house in various places and would love to find the time to do something with it all (in between looking after 3 children (2 have ADHD). I am a talented Horse rider and I am told that I am artistic but I have only managed to complete 1 mixed media painting.
: Yes I wish I could do basic stuff like every one else such as budget the housekeeping properly, I also wish I could have kept my marriage together. I have now been separated for over a year but I am happy as I was in an abusive relationship and my ex-husband also did not believe I possessed any of the above talents and continually put me down to the point where I actually allowed myself to be brain-washed by him and I didn't pursue my talents and dreams for nearly 10 years. Yes I agree, life is frustrating. Please E-mail me if you would like to communicate further about ADHD or any of the above. Thanks for your time..........Debbie.
