Mahima,
I saw mention of you being a scanner in your profile when I first visited your site...I was interested to know more about it then and...
today I clicked on your link from the march 30 list (www.scannersrefusetochose.com)

I have been "scanning" the link and some of the message boards and I think I may actually fit the scanner profile.

I think that this may be a very big help to how I think about my future.

I Realized that I had bought a book awhile back by the same woman who is the one behind this idea..I can picture it now...not too thick...yellow cover, with the title placed as an arch or curving at the top...(I could do anything if only I knew what it was)...this was several years ago...I remember reading it and liking it, but nothing coming from it..it's probably in a box somewhere. Had forgotten about it until today when I saw it mentioned on the discussion board.

This is part of the picture of myself that I am getting...realizing that not everything that troubled me was ADD related...what I always thought was my "easy distractability" or some of my "difficulty focusing" might better be described as my tendency to come across things that interested me while working on one specific thing...I would think that I could just read a bit more and soon what I was learning about was further away from the initial thing...I always was stressed out knowing that I would have to catch myself so that I didn't spend too much time doing this(scanning?).

I Still believe ADD is something I have dealt with, but now it seems I've identified this related issue (won't say "problem" because maybe it doesn't have to be).

There were more than several comments I found by some of the scanners which rang true for me.

Just wanted to let you know how visiting your blog appears to have given me an important puzzle piece...I will be looking to see if it is truly a fit and hoping that it opens some possibilities for me....thank you!

I am interested to know how you came to identify yourself as a scanner and what it has meant for you. Your blog really appeals to me as it draws from many different ideas and has so many interesting links (including Melba's...the first blog I've ever visited).

Wonder what you are busy with outside of blogging and if you get much sleep : )

Hi Mahima!
I was so happy and surprised to get your e-mail, you have no idea! I don't know you but I like your enthusiasm already - all these links and your voracious need to read blogs :)
And your description is lovely: writer.artist.dreamer - reminds me of me, but I'm not really an artist. But I am a dreamer!
Thanks for visiting my blog!
