The last few days have been rough, and my life is crazy at the moment. There are times I just want to go outside to scream my head off to release my emotions.

The pressure is building and hearing my internal teapot of emotions is beginning to boil. ADD is brewing, and waiting for a release. It has taken me a lot of years to recognize my triggers.

Until my stress and craziness go away, I will be dealing with the pressure, and I want to prevent a meltdown,

I will be exercising again, that’s a wonderful way to release the pressure, express my emotions, pray, and trust in God.

Keeping everything bottled up isn’t good for me, and it causes meltdowns.

People with ADHD/ADD need to express their thoughts and emotions. It is one of the best ways to prevent meltdowns, besides getting plenty of sleep, and eating. A lack of sleep and being hungry and thirsty can bring on a meltdown.

That’s what I have learned in dealing with ADD.

I had different things and events to disrupt my daily routine. I have been having a difficult time getting back into my routine, but that is changing because I am starting today. I will be working on editing my chapters and putting back my routine.

Hello, I wanted to give a quick update about what is happening. Right now, I am being treated for H. Pylori, which is a stomach infection. H. Pylori is bacteria left untreated can cause stomach cancer and other issues like anemia for some people.

How is this treated? I’m on two antibiotics and a stomach medicine to reduce my stomach acid. It is tricky to take these additional meds with my regular medication. So, I am spacing out all of my meds, allowing my stomach to absorb my medicine. Drinking a lot of pro antibiotics drinks is helping me with the side effects.

I’m feeling better and seeing improvements in my stomach. I noticed that my appetite has returned. Another thing my concentration is back. My ability to focus has improved, now I am working longer on my writing and editing.

Unfortunately, the side effects are not fun. A lot of food has a weird taste or is just plain yucky. That sticks. Hey! Ice cream tastes great! Being on antibiotics can bring out the ADD and that’s tricky. I am dealing with insomnia, being tired, and taking forever to go to sleep. It will be worth it in the end, I will get my life back.

If you have questions, just ask me in the comments section.

Thank you for reading and have a great day!

Sincerely, Alexandra Mars

Introduction

This is the post excerpt.

My name is Alexandra Mars. If you guessed it, I am an inspiring author pursuing my goal to become published. My friends, call me, Alex, and welcome to my blog. I write fantasy and science fiction because I find that genre fascinating to me, for there are so many paths a writer can take in his/her world.

I have been creating stories my whole life when I was a child, my Barbie dolls and My Little Ponies all had their own personalities. In middle school I discovered my creative writing skills, and I have remained on this path ever since. The journey to arrive at this point hasn’t been easy for me, and at times been very arduous. Now, I see excellent things in my future, and I hope you and I can take the next stage of this wonderful journey together.

You’re probably wondering what’s the next stage, I’ll tell you, my friend. In 2017 I will release my debut saga here on my site. I am excited!

In the meantime, I will be discussing many topics on writing and my life in my blog.

Thank you for reading, and I hope you continue to follow my blog.
