Focus

what's your FOCUS ? is it getting rich ? is it getting by from pay check to pay check?
some one said to me the accronym of FOCUS is f - off cause ur stupid, I was thinking to myself. How on earth did someone come up with that and then it hit me... I have been diagnosed since childhood with having ADD Attention deficit disorder -
Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is one of the most common
childhood disorders and can continue through adolescence and adulthood. Symptoms
include difficulty staying focused and paying attention, difficulty controlling
behavior, and hyperactivity (over-activity) NIMH
So what dawned on me was ...
I get told over and over by friends family and coworkers and even my own children say "mommy focus". I laugh and go on with the task that I was supposed to be working on, I am pretty easy going now (wasn't always the case as a teenager I was labeled aggressive). I could see someone getting annoyed if they were getting told to FOCUS all the time.
A.D.D. is an invisable disorder and you never know that child that you are always telling to focus may not have the self regulation to do so. Please stay calm and try to have patience, I wish when I was in school they had the tools and knowledge the school has for my Daughter who also has ADHD the combined type and adjustmemt disorder.
