Hi, I'm Paul
As I am writing this about page, there are three weeks left in 2020. It has been a hell of a year, and during this year, I have realized that I really have no idea who I really am, and what I want to do. From this point forward, I am going to find out exactly who Paul is, and I am going to share what I discover here.
A couple of months ago (after a few months of therapy), I was diagnosed with ADD. That is what my psychiatrist called it, but the newest term for it is ADHD Inattentive Type. ADD is way easier to say, so I may just keep using that. As you might imagine, this was quite a shock to find out that my brain doesn't work "normally". I am 49 years old, so I guess the most shocking thing to me is that I could live for almost 5 decades without knowing this.
There are things about my brain and body that I just never knew. Now that I am being treated for ADD. it is like a switch was flipped. For the first couple of weeks, I felt like Neo in the Matrix learning new things almost instantly. It is settling down now, but it is going to take me a while to fully figure out how my brain, and body work now.
On this site, I am just going to share what I learn while finding Paul. Hopefully, something I share will resonate with you, and if your journey is, or will be, similar to mine, maybe I can help save you a few years, or decades.
I have initially separated the site into 3 areas, Mind, Body, and Soul (thanks to my wonderful wife for the naming suggestion). Mind will be about what I find out about learning things, Body will focus on things I have learned about my body (spoiler, I have joints I never even knew about!), and Soul will be sharing things I learn about stuff I like (initially Music, Games, and Tech).
Thanks for stopping by! I hope that I can help you find yourself. It is a fun journey!
