: I think I may have shut down my right frontal lobe out of need to get enough dopamine so I could function normally.
: I don't think my hemisperes of my brain communicate most of the time. Now I think my right frontal lobe is back up
: and asking what the hell is going on. It cannot tell my left frontal lobe to relax so I think they have to learn to synchronise
: without being able to communicate. They are slowly learning I hope. Has anyone had strange sensations.
: Muted feelings, mild disorentation and feeling slightly lost. I'm on meds and I'm concerned about this whole thing
: because I'm usually dramatic and fiesty. I'm just not myself. Many things have gone wrong maybe I am myself and
: I don't remember. I looked it up and I don't think something like this can be happening but I think that is exactly what
: I think is going on. With a normal brain this would be impossible but my brain isn't normal. Maybe I have a primative brain
: that is having problems functioning in this society. Maybe it was never intended to handle a world like this.
: Even more so than a normal brain but now when we are being assualted with more information than we can deal
: with it might be ok to have the sort of brain that I have.

You sound down and fed up with it. I often feel this way, just exhausted but unable to calm down or feel grounded. TV, internet etc. so much stimulus everywhere which, I think because of ADD, love AND enjoy being over-stimulated. But I expect it's something we need to learn to deal with. I'm trying to find techniques to identify when I am overloaded. But what can you do to switch off? It would be nice to be able to go to sleep at a set time or have a routine that is self-imposed. How are we 'to be'? I don't have any answers for you right now, but I have a sense of comfort knowing you feel similar.

To everybody else, please give us your practical advice and experience.
