I'm new here... New to the absolutely lovely and wonderful and always so sensical world of ADHD/OCD/Anxiety... My therapist definitely doesn't tell me this, but I believe I have solid symptoms of "the whole alphabet" of anxiety related things.

Speaking of the whole alphabet, and by that, I mean: (A, B, C, D, E, F, G, H, I... Hmm... getting too bored, how about we try it BACKWARDS! Like this! Z, Y, X...) So anyway, what was my point again ???

Oh yeah! Now I remember! In all seriousness, I am being totally sarcastic with all of this, of course. But I am new to the community here, and I'm SO CHARGED (get it ? Pun ? Sorry, just a little issue with impulse control... that one slipped. Sorry!) about getting to know more about myself, anxiety, and connect with other people out there like me!

One last note! I promise! I just have to say this one last thing: Seriously, the whole reason why I went on this whole joking, sarcastic bit above, is so that I can say the following: I heard that the effective use of sarcasm is a sign of high intelligence... hmmm... and that would imply what about me ... ? [wink]

... Still ruminating over my newbie post.

Question: How many anxiety related symptoms can you find above ? I'll start:

#1) OCD: Needs and follows instructions precisely -- the instructions say to start with "I'm new here..."

#2) OCD: Perfectionistic / Laser attention to details -- I know, I know, the instructions say that it should say "I'm new here..." in italics. But I was too lazy to figure out how to change it to italics in this blog...

Your newbie post was just fine! Most of us do enjoy humor. Welcome!! Don’t critique your message! It was good. I’m sure you’re aware that ruminating is a big no-no!! 😉 Wishing you the best!

I like your sense of humor. Welcome. I’ve also heard sarcasm is a form of repressed anger, which I’m sure none of us here have. 😀

Welcome to the group I hope you get what you need out of it! I unfortunately don't know anything about adhd so I look forward to learning about from your posts take care All the best david
