Do you ever feel like a hamster on a wheel running as fast as you can, but going nowhere? That would be me. I was born with a diagnosis of Hyperactivity. Today its called ADD. The docs wanted to put me on Ritalin back then; back then was a long time ago. My parents refused to drug me. I think they regretted that. They didn’t like me very much as I took way too much attention away from my sister and two brothers. They finally tossed me outside with a book, army guys, or a shovel to build a fort. My teachers didn’t like me very much either. I couldn’t sit still and had to check out what everyone else was doing in the classroom. I visited the Principal’s office on a frequent basis. She didn’t like me either. I would pretend to be sick; a lot. The school nurse would call my mom and my mom would tell the nurse I was fine and I could not come home. They all eventually figured out if they gave me a book I would sit still. My fifth grade teacher didn’t even hit me too hard with her ruler when she found me hiding a book inside my math book. So I guess I was destined to be a writer sometime in my life. My brain is still flying too fast for me to keep up; the hamster syndrome. Book ideas are plaguing me and it is hard to keep track. Thank God for Notes on my Iphone. Keep on reading my friends!
