As an adult living with ADHD and Giftedness, Stacey's an expert on being weird. After thirty-five years of daily battle with her quirks, she finally decided it was time to hug it out and accept her differences for a more peaceful existence. Stacey has successfully learned to view the world of AD(H)D and Giftedness through her "special eyes" and maneuver through life accordingly. She no longer feels like offing herself on a daily basis, and realizes that both gifts allow her a magical perspective on life that comes from intimately engaging with the universe in ways that don't meet the eyes and can't be explained. She considers that a good thing.

It’s time to raise your freak flags everyone! Every day on my Facebook page, I have people responding to my posts with, “I’m so happy right now!  I thought I was crazy!  I had no idea that was related to my AD(H)D!“ I think there are a lot of cool, weird, quirky things about us [...] Read more of this blog post »

“So, please people, if you know someone with AD(H)D, don’t try to change that about them. Don’t take that one skill away, or make them feel ashamed to use it. Sometimes procrastination is all they have in their little superhero tool belt!”
Stacey Turis, Here's to Not Catching Our Hair on Fire: An Absent-Minded Tale of Life with Giftedness and Attention Deficit - Oh Look! A Chicken!

“Not that I'm bipolar, but that I'm two people, and not just two people, but two people at odds with each other. The mom and the kid, the homebody and the explorer, the strong and the weak, the logical and the emotional, the funny and the sad, the angry and the calm, the open and the closed, the loved and the hated, the hot and the cold, the alive and the dead, the beautiful and the ugly. It's exhausting. I. Am. Exhausting.”
Stacey Turis, Here's to Not Catching Our Hair on Fire: An Absent-Minded Tale of Life with Giftedness and Attention Deficit - Oh Look! A Chicken!

“Just doing the audition was going to be an experience, and I am a true collector of life experiences. I live for life experiences. I put them in my pocket like shiny rocks, and take them out every now and then to appreciate and reflect on them. I once read an article that the Eastern Indian culture considers those with AD(H)D to be old, wise souls that are coming to the end of their reincarnations, so they must pack as many life experiences and lessons into their few remaining lifetimes as possible. Makes sense to me--that's why we always have so much shit going on!”
