Doesn't Excuse It...Perhaps Explains It




Preliminary but increasing evidence suggests that ADHD and Tourette's syndrome may be comorbid*.
(websciences.org)

*Comorbid- existing simultaneously and usually independently of another medical condition.

Interesting.

Well I don't have any excuses either all I know is I first read it as Cornbread and I thought you had really slipped the groove. Now I see it is me that has lost it.

My ADHD Me said...

They may be cornbread too, but the studies on that haven't been completed yet.

My 30x5 recap would look much the same only yours is funny! And the Comorbid post.......haven't used that word in a sentence since nursing school!:)

Thank you! The baby is feeling better already I think. Hopefully he has a milder version of the virus I had recently. I realized that I didn't even mention in my post what my husband does (not sure that I should), but his civilian job is asst. DA, so he prosecutes criminals......which would have probably helped the post make better sense I guess......he wishes now he had been a firefighter!! I'm sure you can understand why!

Linda has posted her new challenge and I noticed you didn't sign up. LOL! Are you?

*grin*

What makes you think we didn't know what comorbid meant? I mean really!

My ADHD Me said...

Oh no! The definition was to remind me. I KNEW you all knew what it meant. (and by "you all", I mean all 3 of you).

If only it were so easy to explain....

Excuses without a foundational base of evidence are just excuses. We need reasons in sentences comprising words of less than 3 syllables to be adequately understood. Instead, we're stuck with co-morbidity and other hyphenated, abbreviated concoctions that you nobody gets.

In other words, "Still very symptomatic." That makes a good shirt.

My ADHD Me said...

I'm going to have to get a shirt that says that.

HisPrincess said...

I like that t shirt!

I admit it. I didn't know what comorbid meant! Who knew I would come over here and learn something. Not that I think that's unusual, or that you don't have lots of clever things to say...think I'll shut up now.
