By Percy Bysshe Shelley: I met a traveller from an antique land, Who said—'Two vast and trunkless legs of stone Stand in the desert. . . . Near them, on the sand, Half sunk a shattered visage lies, whose frown, And wrinkled lip, and sneer of cold command, Tell that its sculptor well those passions r...

Perhaps they accidentally copied the ADHD definition from another edition of this book. After all, this IS the 10th edition.

I feel like that too. I feel like this place is temporary, and I'm fumbling my way through this planet without a real purpose. Like I'm just going along with the flow because I don't know what better to do. Like I'm just passing time until I return to my true place.

Their description of ADHD
Quote:
Disorder occuring mainly in children characterised by hyperactivity, inability to concentrate, and impulsive or inappropriate behaviour.


Clearly they don't know the difference between autism and ADHD.

And "impulsitivity"??? There is no such word. Clearly whoever wrote that text was unqualified to do so. To me that one word would jeopardize the reliability of the entire book.


That was my mistake. In the textbook, "impulsivity" is spelled correctly.

Unfortunately, an out of body experience is not what I meant. I meant that I sort of "forget" I have legs or a mouth and I can't tell very well how I am moving them. Like certain wires got temporarily disconnected from my brain. Though I have had out-of-body moments. Oh okay so like conne...

Some say I'm too quiet. When I was younger, most teachers loved me because I was the only one who could be silent when it was asked of us.

When there's a lot of sensory stimuli, my proprioception gets weird. If I can't see my legs in that kind of situation, I often stamp my feet so my brain will kind of "know" what my lower limbs are doing. I was in a noisy place today, and I had to talk to someone. My speech came out a bit w...

I also have two internal monologues: one rehearsing and one imaginative. The rehearsing one is much more clear-cut than the imaginative one. My imaginative one doesn't play a very active role in my life. I usually "imagine" with images and concepts. Osscasionally, I'll have an internal com...
