I just found out what a FIDGET DODECAHEDRON is and oh my god

12 sides!!! My god!! WHAT IS GOING ON HERE

THATS TOO MANY SIDES!!!!!!!!!!!

My review of looking at this behemoth of a fidget toy: I like most things except the weird rubber balls and the worry stone. They can perish i hate them

I have this and it’s so overwhelming. There’s a lot of things to spin and press. The rubber balls are surprisingly fun to play with (i call them the anger balls) because when i’m upset and angry, I squeeze and bend them as hard as i can.

it’s not my favourite fidget because it’s bulky and depending on what you use, not very quiet. overall rate: 6-7/10

I subbed in a special ed class and during a read aloud some of the kids get these. I had to ask them to not use the clicky part because it was wayyy too distracting for me to read to them.

I asked my friend whether she has a constant inner dialougue going on, and she said no.

And I’m like?????? How can you not??

Are peoples heads silent most of the time????

Are they not constantly singing and talking and wondering and imagining bullshit in their heads 24/7

So then I asked around, to some other people and they all agreed!!! 

No nonstop inner talking!! 

They said for them, it was more pictures or not fully formed sentences then full speech.


So now I’m just trying to figure out if this is an adhd thing???? Because no one is an individual in their actions due to probability and stuff so I can’t be the only one.


I’ve tried researching it, and in psychology its called ‘inner speech’!!

Theres a lot of text and I’m getting bored of reading about this,,..,.,

So instead I wanted to ask, what any of your experiences with inner speech are? 

Because I’m curious about other peoples first hand experiences with it!

I have 2 songs, movie dialogue, a story I’m writing, and at least one conversation on the go at all times. It’s no wonder people with adhd are prone to substance abuse. I can see how appealing it would be to use something that would just make it all quiet

……….. I didn’t know silence was an option lmao.

During my first month with my therapist, I was given this worksheet to read and work on. She noticed that while I was talking with her, that my thoughts followed a lot of these. I wasn’t aware that my anxiety had brought me down paths of low self-worth and stinky thinking. 

After a couple of weeks of talking with her, she gave me this worksheet to work on. 

While, at first, I thought these weren’t going to work out, I was very surprised to see just how easy they were to use . My homework at that time was to identify which sort of thinking I used on the regular and which ones would best challenge them for me.

So, what do you think? Do any of the maladaptive thinking patterns sound like you? which ways would you like to untwist your thinking?

Ok, in general I try and stay away from the DSM-V / clinical definitions for most of these types of questions but I think that in this specific case the DSM does a very good job of illustrating the key differences.

If you look at part A of the clinical autism diagnosis you will see a reference to social-emotional reciprocity. This is what autism is fundamentally about. This is the “heart” of autism as it were.

A lack of social-emotional reciprocity, which is the primary feature of autism, means that compared to everyone else we do not have the expected back and forth social or emotional skills. The most common example of this is inconsistent eye contact, or displaying inappropriate emotions (laughing at a funeral as it were).

If you look at ADHD, however, everything is about executive functioning. It is about the things you do instead of displaying what is considered typical executive function.

For example, even for small decisions people typically make plans. Sometimes this just happens in the backgrounds and may not be something they are even aware of. But that good ‘ole frontal lobe is planning and executing. Unless you are ADHD-C or ADHD-HI and have the impulsive trait. You very well might by pass that natural planing that goes on, or not think it all the way through. You end up making bad choices or dangerous choices because of it.

So with ASD you focus on deficits in trying to interact with people and especially on the social and emotional differences in how you prefer communicate and how allistics communicate.

With ADHD you focus on deficits in trying to do things, whether that is tasks in front of you or making safe decisions, or anything in between.

abcsofadhd:

Unlike what is commonly believed, dopamine isn’t released in the brain when you finish a task, as a job well done.

Rather, dopamine is constantly released which is what makes us want to continue doing the task. This doesn’t work as well in the ADHD brain.

This is how stimulants helps us do things; extra dopamine released makes tasks seem not as unappealing.

So in fact, it really is about the journey rather than the destination.

This is alao why. The internet and our phones are appealing.

The “I don’t wanna” gremlin is always so much louder than the “this task really isn’t that hard to do” voice of reason.

And when I do get around to doing the thing, unless hyperfocus kicks in, I can only stand hearing high pitch schreeching in my head for so long.

In the saga “coffee pots and productivity”: Busy is not a badge of honor !

You don’t have to be exhausted, overworked, to be worthy of respect.

You don’t need to be in constant search for the sacrosanct productivity to deserve praise.

In a society that puts our value in our hability to work, it’s important to remember that our worth is not our productivity.
