I TOTALLY need to get one of these buttons!
The Splintered Mind by Douglas Cootey: Does National ADD Awareness Day Involve Calculators?: "Does National ADD Awareness Day Involve Calculators?... read the rest of the post on his site (and see the buttons).
How exciting! It's National ADD Awareness Day. And I forgot to get you a card.
Well, no matter, I'm sure you forgot about it. It's the only the third one. However, I fear National ADD Awareness Day ranks up there with National Boss Day, but not nearly as popular as National Depression Screening Day! Unfortunately, AD/HD only rates one day. In England Epilepsy gets a whole week, and in America Epilepsy gets a whole month. I'm sure my brother who has epilepsy finds that immensely comforting.
Although it is nice to have national ADD recognition I'm not sure what good a special day does, but maybe I'm just cynical. Can you imagine showing up to work wearing a special ribbon, bracelet, or button announcing your malady? I can see mine. In fact, I just made mine. You can even buy a copy:
Don't Forget! I Have ADD!!
But that button will not be nearly as popular as this one:
What WAS I Doing AGAIN?
If it seems that I'm feeling festive it is because I found my feet again. I had misplaced them over the summer, making all those hiking trips a bit difficult, but now that I have got them under me again I'm ready to move forward into life without any of that awkward limping"
