My mom is a therapist, so it is no surprise that I have been diagnosed with Adhd. Adhd is a developmental disorder, and it means that I struggle with a lot of things in life. I’m hoping that in my next post on the “three levels of self-awareness” that I’ll share how I manage them and how to shift with them.
Adhd is definitely a lot different from autism. You need to know where you are in the spectrum because you can’t always control everything. There are things that can’t be changed, and things that I can’t help, but there are many things I can do to help. For example, I can talk with my mom and tell her what I want for dinner without having to sit and listen to a lecture about it.
It’s a lot easier to be someone who makes you behave in a way you like than to be someone who makes you feel bad.
Adhd may be a lot different from autism, but it’s still a lot more than just being unable to read a map or tell time. It’s similar to ADHD, but not the same as it. The biggest difference is that you can’t control the way that you act and react. You can’t always tell the difference between right and wrong, but you can certainly pick up on when you’re acting too aggressive or not aggressive enough.
Adhd can manifest itself in any number of ways. For our purposes, we’re going to focus on behaviors that are likely to be harmful for a person who is on the spectrum. First and foremost, you can’t control yourself. You can change the way you act and react, but it’s very difficult to make yourself do things that aren’t helpful.
We’ve all been on a rollercoaster ride, so we know what we can control. We dont need to be on that ride every day. We can change our behavior and attitude to avoid the ride altogether. When we get too far off from our normal behavior, we can shift into a more adaptive mode. We can learn to recognize these shifts and shift into adaptive mode, even if we dont have any conscious control over it.
The idea of “adaptive mode” can relate to a lot of things: social change, addiction, social recovery, and even autism. When you are on a rollercoaster ride, you are not really aware of what is happening to you.
Adaptive mode is basically the opposite of withdrawal, the condition in which a person is in the grip of a behavior that is causing him to get out of control. To be adaptive, you simply need to be aware of that situation so that you can change your behavior. In the movie, “The Social Network,” the adaptive mode is described as a person who is able to be aware that everybody is out to get him.
It would be really interesting to know how a person’s mind works, how they react to what a person says. For instance, you might think, _Okay, we’re going to go and attack you and then you give up and now you’re going to get a drink. The next time you get a drink, you will be right there in front of you with no warning, and you won’t have a good time.
I think this is a really good question. And in the movie, Zuckerberg has an analogy: if someone says something to him, he’ll say something back. If I have to shift a bit from what I’m doing right now to what I should be doing, I’ll shift a bit.
