Before we get into the myths and why they are wrong, I will start by saying I am a person suffering with ADHD and will be making connections to my own experiences in this article. But, I will also be consulting others with ADHD and trustworthy sources for the information I will be giving. Hopefully, this will shed some light on a still under thought about disability.
I never realized just how quickly one is able to learn and to grow. The kind of growth and knowledge that a school could never teach and the experiences no parent could protect their child from undergoing: these are the inevitable factors which took place, and which molded me into the person I am right here, right now.
I absolutely love eggs, but whenever I am a vegetarian, people always question me eating eggs because there seems to be some question about eggs containing underdeveloped chickens... seriously? Let me help you out if you also ask yourself that question. Eggs contain NO chicken. A hen lays one egg a day regardless of whether or not there is a rooster in the coop. So it is an unfertilized egg and contains no chicken. Of course being an ethical vegetarian I do care about where my eggs come from. Whenever possible I buy locally, otherwise I buy from farms I know allow for free range living and good food for their hens. It takes research, but it is worth it not only to get a great egg, but to make sure you aren't getting eggs from a farm keeping their hens in horrible conditions and feeding them garbage.
Seasonal Affective Disorder, otherwise known as seasonal depression or S.A.D, is a mood disorder where those who are diagnosed experience depressive symptoms occurring around the same time every year. The majority of people who have this experience it during the colder months, but it does happen to some in the warmer months, as well. In order to get a proper diagnosis and/or self diagnosis, you need to experience depressive symptoms around the same time each year consecutively for two years. This is when you experience symptoms associated with depression which vary from person to person, as it does for Major Depressive Disorder or any other mental illness.
