It's been a long hard day, and things between my parents have hit rock-bottom. In the end, things still seemed to turn out okay. I think I've come to a better understanding of my mom and why she doesn't hear many of the things people say. I think she's also been more honest with herself and felt safe enough to admit that it might be something she does. She seems to have many huge signs of ADHD (at least the hyperactive kind), especially since she talked about all the details she naturally notices at once and how she often couldn't focus on the person speaking for long. There's been a long history of her not hearing most of what I (and my dad apparently) have said and assuming I have said something negative. Then she would often accuse me of saying something I didn't say (and sometimes said the opposite of) because of her negative experiences with people in the past. She also has a habit of focusing on at least one other thing while most of the stuff I say goes over her head. More recently I've learned that multitasking might improve her concentration. That makes me feel much better and less ignored to be honest.

Ugh, I can already feel it getting worse. I almost forgot how much of a “boost” summer gave me, and I can’t function that well for the rest of the year.

When it gets colder, my whole system seems to shut down. My body feels more achy, tired, and generally messed up. And my brain gets about 5x slower... as if it isn’t already slow enough. My motivation and memory get even worse, and I sleep more than usual. Whatever correlates with the lack-of-energy type of depression flares up. I basically end up hibernating for 3/4 of the year.

It’s really easy to forget when things have been warm for a while...
