Can You Draw a Clock?
I was diagnosed with Adult ADD several years ago. Up to then I had no idea why I had a problem with focus all my adult life.
Dozens of self-help books on how to focus. Depression because I couldn’t. And lost promotions from yearly management reviews showing I wasn’t “focused”.
Ritalin turned the lights back on for me.
A couple of years after the ADD diagnosis I ended up in the ER. And was told I was hypothyroid. A full-page, two-column list of symptoms includes brain fog. Not only was I struggling to focus, my memory was failing too.
Episodes of not remembering dates and appointments, a failing business, and a crumbling marriage. I saw psychologists, doctors, endocrinologists, neuroscience specialists and therapists.
Two unrelated doctors tested me for dementia, and early-onset Alzheimer’s disease. One of the tests is the “Mini-Mental State Exam”. A “health professional” asks a series of questions designed to test a range of everyday mental skills.
The maximum MMSE score is 30 points. A score of 20 to 24 suggests mild dementia, 13 to 20 suggests moderate dementia, and less than 12 indicates severe dementia.
I got 30 points on every test.
During the mini-cog, a person is asked to complete two tasks:
- Remember and a few minutes later repeat the names of three common objects
- Draw a face of a clock showing all 12 numbers in the right places and a time specified by the examiner
The results of this brief test can help a physician determine if further evaluation is needed.[ii]
I’m a writer, and not an artist. But was able to draw a near perfect clock.
So it was becoming increasingly clear that this was not dementia, or Alzheimer’s. But for some reason my brain was not working nearly as well as it should.
The medical bills kept stacking up, and the doctors had all but given up. There was nothing wrong with me according to mainstream medicine.
But my life was falling apart and I had to make a decision. Either figure this thing out. Or give up and die.
I decided there must be a better way.
Nootropics Saved My Life
I’m a Virgo. And this means I’m very methodical in my approach to life. There had to be another answer to my cognitive problems. And thus began years of research and experimenting.
I had to find out if there was a way to deal with brain fog and ADHD naturally. Ritalin was able to help me focus. But was not helping in the memory and thinking department.
Years of searching websites, reading stacks of books, and combing through the forums. And I was able little by little to get my brain working again. Better than ever before.
With the right combination of supplements and lifestyle changes, I’ve been able to reduce my use of prescription stimulants. My business turned around, my relationship is better than the day we got married, and my brain is firing on all cylinders.
And I continue to tweak and refine every area of my brain and cognition.
