I'm Running Out of February

As February draws to a close, I am starting to realize that there's something wrong with this month.

Did you know that February had only 28 days in it? I feel positively robbed. I am so far behind accomplishing my list of goals for February it might as well be January.

Somehow I always fail to include downtime for disability when I make my plans. Silly, isn't it? So many days this month were spent doing nothing more than ticking and helping the kids between episodes. However...

The greatest obstacle between my goals and I is usually myself. February was no exception. I simply let ADHD knock me around like a toy dog in the back of a moving pickup truck.

If it wasn't for the ticking I'd set out to pull off a miracle. There's still time to burn the midnight oil. Instead, I'll be lucky to finish a few of my goals.

I'm not going to let it get me down, however. That's all I need - a bout of Depression while I wrestle with ADHD and Chronic Motor Tic Disorder. Instead I'll renew my efforts to focus on controlling my ADHD and see if I can talk Congress into extending February by a few days.

I'm guessing the latter task will be the easier of the two.
