I’m half-baked

When I saw psychiatrist Professor Peter Hill baking gingerbread men on the Horizon documentary ADHD and Me with Rory Bremner (links to BBC website) it struck a chord with me.

The second gingerbread man has all the right ingredients, but he doesn’t get to cook for long enough at the right temperature. He’s only half-baked.

Which is one of my nicknames!

I was an IUGR baby. Intrauterine growth restriction is when a baby’s growth slows or stops during pregnancy. I now have a reason as to why I have ADHD.

Reasons are really important. The “Why me?” question pings around my head like a pinball. Now I have a “why” I can concentrate more on the other questions.


The official BBC2 link to ADHD and Me with Rory Bremner contains the message “Sorry, this episode is not currently available.” However, if you’d like to watch it, I’ve found a copy on the dailymotion website.
