ADHD High

It has been a long week and I am relieved, beyond words, that the weekend is finally upon us! It has been an extremely productive week, actually two weeks, and I think a lot of it has to do with my ADHD high. For about two and a half weeks my ADHD has been on overdrive! It has felt like my mind is functioning at warp speed and word vomit ensues. I cannot take full responsibility for any strange thing I have said this week because I had almost zero control over what came out of my mouth! I didn’t do anything mean, but I am sure I had given away far too much information! I am certain it has been entertaining for everyone around me though!

There is no easy way to describe how it feels to have ADHD, but the closest thing I can compare it to is that you are trying to hear a personal conversation with someone while you are standing in the middle of a huge crowd. Even when I am in a silent room, it never feels quiet. It’s kinda weird. It doesn’t bother me, and sometimes it is fun to be so hyper.

I told my husband that I was going to have a crash soon because the ADHD high has been going on for so long. I am not sure if other ADHD-ers experience periods when their symptoms are overstimulated, but it does seem to happen to me every now and then. Yesterday happened to be my crash day, and let me tell you, I was utterly exhausted! I am not sure I have ever been that tired! I barely could drive home from work. After going to bed early last night and waking up a little late for work, I am feeling more rested. I may need one more day of good sleep to be back to normal though!

Gotta love ADHD! 🙂

  1. Much to the, sometimes dismay, of my hubby, I rarely seem to crash. I try to counter my energy with exercise. This sometimes wears me out and sometimes gives me more energy.
    Your description of how it feels is a good one. My mind is constantly on the move; like it’s a race car speeding from subject to subject and thought to thought. One thing that helps me, too, is my art time. My husband and I both notice that it’s the only time I can really focus and stay calm.

    Hope you recover from crash time and are soon back in the fast lane. ;)!

  2. I had to smile when I read this. This is exactly what I feel all the time. The only downside with my ADHD high is that I am too high to focus on my school work. Which led to stress and trouble in school, which led to moderate depression over the years. Finally went to the doctor to get some help and I’m blogging about it now haha

  3. I get overstimulated so easily! It’s better now that I’m being medicated correctly again. I was self-medicating for awhile with caffeine which mainly served to make me even more agitated! Hope you’re feeling better now!
