Well here I sit once again, realizing that even typing has been to much of a hassle. Not only that, my computer has been a real bitch lately. It has decided to take on a mind of it's own and randomly goes into "sleep" mode which is really quite irritating. Every time I press the "space bar" it goes to sleep on me. I have to literally throw the keyboard against the wall and bang in on the stupid desk to get it to stop doing that.
Any who, my depression has been coming and going in severity. Some days it's a lot more tolerable. I have noticed when I have PMS it is significantly worse. But, I have PMDD also so that makes my bipolar worse even when I am not depressed. Ugh, I sound like such a mess.
I was reading something in one of my parenting magazines about how it's not necessarily a good thing for a child to have a label such as "ADHD" because their teachers tend to give up on them or write them off or just let them float on through for the sake of the fact that they can't focus. That seriously bugs me. Working as a teaching assistant especially with kids that had mental illnesses, you would think it would be so rewarding for a teacher to see these kids accomplish stuff. Just because a child is hyper doesn't mean they aren't intelligent and as deserving as "normal" kids of an education. I hope to God that if I had a child with ADHD (which is very likely given my husband and I both have it) that teachers wouldn't just pay him no mind and make him feel like a lost cause. Makes me sick just thinking about it. Had to rant about that.
