Question?: Adhd Lyrics

George asks…

Anyone have study tips for a high-school junior?

I feel so embarrassed asking this, but I don’t know where else to go. How do you study when you’re distracted by everything, but can’t have things completely quiet? Also, what about when your family is zero help (everything I do, good or bad, gets questions from them)? I really need some advice because I’m on my own here. Thanks.

Also, not that I’m making an excuse, but I have ADHD, if that’ll help more with giving advice.

admin answers:

Do a little bit at a time. Break big tasks into small chunks and reward yourself at the end of each with a chocolate or a drink or whatever you’re into. Make checklists each day and tick items off because it helps you to feel a sense of accomplishment even if it’s just to read one page. Study for 10 or 20 minutes and then give yourself a break but study solidly during this time. Know what times of day your brain is at it’s best depending on whether you’re a morning or night person. Use headphones with music that doesn’t have lyrics so you don’t get distracted if it helps. Reward yourself with internet time too if you find yourself distracted by it and keep it shut down while studying. Get into a routine using schedules, checklists and rewards so that you’re training your body and mind.

Question?: Asperger Syndrome Treatment

Lisa asks…

What can I do to help my Asperger’s Syndrome?

I have Asperger‘s Syndrome. I have never really been treated for it. My parents (I’m only 16) have generally tended to ignore it. I want treatment to help myself progress and make myself a better indvidual soically. What can I do? How do I make my parents understand what I have? I’m on Triliptal. Its normally an anti-sezuire med, but they use it for my mood swings.

admin answers:

Try showing your parents books, pamphlets or websites about Asperger’s. If they educate themselves about it then they will probably see how well it describes you, and be more willing to help you get treatment. You can also show these resources to a teacher, guidance counselor, relative, or anyone you trust. In some areas there are groups for the families of people on the autistic spectrum- these groups might be able to help you win over your family. Talk to your doctor too- they might be able to lend weight to your diagnosis. The person that is prescribing your meds should certainly be aware of your Asperger’s.

Whatever happens with your parents, you are trying to improve yourself and that is the most important thing. Even if you can’t get formal treatment, keep pushing yourself. You can make a lot of progress by expanding your comfort zone just a little bit at a time. Be well.
