Luxury VS Accommodations: Surviving the Holidays with ADHD

Posted on November 28, 2016




You’ve survived Thanksgiving and Christmas is just around the corner. If you’re a hyperactive extrovert, then you might be in your glory. But if you’re an inattentive introvert- like me- you’re completely depleted of energy.

I had 12 people for Thanksgiving at my house- people I absolutely love to death- some whom I only get to see a few times a year, since they live out of state.

Yet even with being around my family who knows me pretty well, it has taken me nearly a week to recuperate. And don’t laugh, but I ordered in all the food because it’s simply too much for me to manage for that many people. I also doubly splurged by hiring a cheerful woman who heated up the food, served it, and…..tada…cleaned everything up for me. For $60, it was well worth that luxury.

But wait, is ordering in and paying for help truly a luxury if one has difficulties with time management, planning, executing, getting distracted and getting easily overwhelmed?


I’m fortunate in that I was able to afford these accommodations. Note my word, accommodations, because getting help is not a luxury. Without help during times like this, I actually get physically ill from the stress.

Next: Christmas/Chanukah. Every year, I purchase all of my gifts online because I cannot handle crowds and chaos at the mall. I wait for Black Friday and Cyber Monday to get huge discounts.

So for you, dear readers, I’ve already done a lot of the work for you. See my page of hand picked holiday gifts- they’re all via Amazon, a trustworthy site. (I get a small commission for anything you purchase starting on my page HERE).

You can get all your shopping done in probably less than 20 minutes. And wouldn’t you rather spend that time in the comfort of your own home?

Bed Tents! A Great Sensory Solution for Staying Calm

Posted on November 16, 2016

Back when my daughter was just a little thing, she just couldn’t settle down- not for naps and not at bedtime. I found a bed tent similar to some of the ones here and she found her safe haven where she could shut out sensory overload, play with her toys, and yes…nap and sleep! Now I see they have them for adults, too! Check out the Privacy Pop – the first photo below. They come in all sizes, from Twin to Queen and in various colors. Hands down, this is what I would have purchased if they’d been available back then. Check the other tents/bed tents below. Would this help your hyperactive kiddo to settle down?
