This site began after two hyperactive guys compared notes about what we found amusing. (Hint: It wasn’t golf.) I said that we shared so much in common, including the fact that we are still, as adults, easily bored, and that we should start a club, or at least a newsletter, for people like us.
Well, here it is.
And now that I think about it, why not? Those of us who are hyperactive adults have survived the perils of childhood and our difficult grade-school years. And that is worth celebrating. Those of you who stumble across this website can take heart that there are plenty of successful, hyperactive adults who do manage to find their way into the right niche.
My intention here is to spotlight these individuals, and to have some fun along the way. Let’s face it, you have to be able to laugh when you have hyperactive people in your life. We like to think we’re lovable, and we can be, but God knows we can be exhausting sometimes.
So, if you have a story to tell or want to join in our discussion, please do so. Perhaps you are a teacher–oddly enough, both my friend and I are–and want to give your perspectives. That’s fine. Or maybe you’re a parent who wants to remind we the rambunctious how tiring it can be. That’s fair, too. But the underlying tone I want to strike is one of optimism. We can all get through this, and, maybe, still like one another. That’s my hope.
