Bipolar – My Dog and My Brain


Training young dogs is exhausting.

She tests my ability to slow down (I have ADHD) and be patient (with my dog Bailey). It takes time and the ability to learn. Why learn? Why should I learn? Because I’m not used to handling a dog and I don’t know how to train her.

I’m not depress so that helps. I’m not manic. (I’m talking about right now.) I’m on an even keel and feel pretty good. It has been a really long time coming.

I am ADHD. My son and I go to private lessons together and I’m so glad he’s willing to go. You see, I listen, I hear what is being said, I even understand. I just can’t remember a bloody thing. Oh the general things are ok. I can put the leash on and start to do an exercise… then I stop because I can’t remember the next step.

Today my medprovider increased my Ritalin. I hope it helps. I feel rather stupid when I fail to be able to recall even basic exercises. I know I’m not stupid, but I feel that way.

Do you ever feel that way about something in your life?

Be well Friend
