A good friend of mine pointed out today that I seem to be addicted, in a way, to worry. He asked me why I don’t seem to be satisified unless I’m worrying about something.
His words really struck me, so I took some time to think about it. I think worry is a mental stimulant and for those of us with ADD, well…aren’t we always looking for challenges and stimulation so we don’t get bored? Don’t we hyperfocus on things and not always on GOOD things?
Dr. Ned Hallowell wrote an entire book on the topic and titled the book, “Worry” that explains why we do it and what we can do about it.
Are you a worry wart? Does your brain get stuck in worry?
