soistalune:

Can confirm via lived experience. I’m known for my sweet tooth and consuming a LOT of sugar daily, which never seemed to affect my ‘energy’ levels the way people say kids get hyperactive on sugar. It in fact simply helped me be steadier. 

Since I started taking ADHD medication, my cravings for sweet snacks have gotten down to almost zero, except if I need to make a specifically mentally challenging task. Wish I knew this before I only sought diagnosis past 30 years old…

parad0xymoron:

Oh yeah, this is a hell of a thing. Years before my diagnosis I used to snack hardcore on chocolates and particularly candy whenever I was writing and insisted it ‘helped me think’. Turns out that yup, that was my ADHD brain demanding sugar for the dopamine machine to help me pay attention.

(These days I just keep a bottle of high-glucose sports drink handy and slowly sip my way through it when I need to focus instead of slamming back whole packets of Nerds.)

execdysfunction:

Y’all I just learned that unusually high sugar and carb cravings are a symptom of dopamine deficiency

If you’re adhd and experience a deep and all-encompassing urge to eat cake at least five times a day boy do I have news for you

I’m not the designer nor the client in this story. I work at a start-up and my boss hired a freelance designer to design the company logo. There were WEEKS of numerous daily revisions, asking the designer to create multiple versions of whatever crazy idea popped into his head that day, demanding to have them done immediately and then rejecting them all.

Desperate, the poor designer finally decided to have a long meeting with my boss in which he worked while my boss watched him and not leave until the final logo design was approved. That meeting lasted six hours. 

The next morning, after finally approving the final logo design

Boss: I will not be hiring this designer for any future work. 

Me: How come? He did dozens of designs with every adjustment you asked for and did not even bill for extra hours.

Boss: Yes but I designed this logo. I shouldn’t even be paying him for it. 

Me: What?

Boss: Yes, everything was my idea. All that designer did was drag a few things around on his computer and do some fine-tuning. 

Me: ….

Boss: Anyway can you call him for me? I can’t login to my email and I want him to fix it for me. 

I think I should quit.

I was hired as a photographer to take a set of images to promote a New Year’s party event promoting a champagne brand.

Me: I’ll need you to provide the setting – so decorations and people to shoot for the party.

Client: Great.

The event was in collaboration with a luxury thermal resort. They asked me to come at the resort at 10 AM on a weekday of November. Once I got there I saw that there were no decorations at all, and nothing to suggest that it’s a New Year’s party at all.

I sent my assistant to buy balloons and sparklers.

Client: So, we don’t have any models hired but we thought maybe you could be in the photos to make it seem like there’s a party going on?

Me: I’m not sure how I can take the photos and be in them at the same time.

Client: Oh, right, never mind.

After a long discussion, we agreed to have my assistant model. We did the shoot and then, when we were about to leave:

Client: By the way, we want you to make it look like the party is at night.  

Me: That is not possible. You scheduled this shoot for midday, outside in the open.

 Client: Just make some “photo magic.”

Me: It doesn’t work like that.

Client: (spreading hands wide) Abracadabra!
