I cannot concentrate on ANYTHING that needs a lot of brain power.Im also really forgetful.Mom would tell me to get in the shower and Il walk into a random room and say to myself,"What was I supposed to do in this room again?" so I'll walk out and remember,and then when I FINALLY get into the shower I start to daydream and take too long.I also really get mad at myself for being a complete klutz and for being so absent-minded.For example,I'll scrape off my food after dinner,then I'll almost throw my fork in as well,or I bring a milk jug upstairs instead of putting it back in the sink.Ill accidentally put my underwear on over my pants,(superman forever! XD) or I'll make my bed,unmake it, and then make it again,or Mom says to change my pants and I end up putting my pajams back on...The possibilities with me are endless.Im also constantly knocking into stuff.I have a good sense of balance,but my sense of direction needs work...Grrrrrrrrr...

Ok, I've got to misspell your username because the iPad keeps spacing it. Bludesssert, I keep doing that too. Like not on the computer but like when I sit down to eat I get wacky.

You're welcome jonasfan160234 and ferret.

Well... it's not a illness, more of a disorader, but I have 'webbed' toes... both of my feet have four toes that are known as being stuck together. Another word for it is fused. I think it has something to make your walking different then the average person. Like, I sometimes walk on my ankles or like a duck. LOL. 1nancydrew1 and BlueDesert, I get that pretty much every time I sneeze two or three times. Most of the time, though, I get it when I'm sick or have a headache. And HungerGames6, I bleed a lot, too. Almost every time, I can smell blood before a nosebleed, so I tell people before it happens. LOL, it makes my brother Jonathan think I have the ablity to guess what he's thinking, but I actually never can.

Anna-Marie, I actually hadn't heard from you for a long time! How are ya? ;) (Oh, and it's me, XxGingerxX just to let you know.)

@1nancydrew1: Thanks for complimenting my story :)

@CowChow attention deficit hyper disorder
--01sparkly

@01sparkly; it is if you look at it like that, but I've learned that nothing in life is certain so I should just smile and enjoy life to the fullest and if i live like that, the pain becomes nothing more than a memory :)
--PockyChan

1nancydrew1, I keep hackin' up phlegm, too. But actually, it's pronounced 'flem'. Just to let ya know! ;)
--BlueDessert

1nancydrew1,Thanx for praying for him! It feels good to know that someone cares for you even when you've never seen their face...

What's ADHD
--CowChow

Ive have minimal change nephrotic syndrome since I was about 3. This is when your kidneys don't filter correctly. I was apparently one of the lucky ones; although Ive had to go to the hospital a few times, Ive NEVER had to go on dialysis or get a transplant. I do take a medicine for relapses (which has a lot of side effects) and i have been taking another medicine to prevent relapses. (which failed)
--Disneyluvr

I just got a tooth pulled. Owwww!
--1nancydrew1

AAARRGGHH!!! I KEEP HACKING UP PHLEGM!!! P.S. It's pronounced Flim.
--1nancydrew1

--Athenaa2000

I wander if I have a little bit of ADHD..I mean, I was browsing through this site and I'm MOVING! So much ! Non-stop! Like I gotta go PEEE! Which I don't ! *facepalm* (Oh, and that 'facepalm' move, it's now my catch phrase, or catch..action?)
--BlueDessert
