Super Better

So here is a TedTalk about a woman who is also a game designer, who got post concussion syndrome and turned her recovery into a game. I went into it thinking that it was probably going to be really dumb, and at the start of the video I sort of hated her voice and hated her for being so cheery (I must be PMSing because I'm really usually quite cheery myself and certainly not this full of hate hahahah)

 

Anyhow, in the end she won me over and made me smile and I think I'm going to try this absolutely ridiculous game called superbetter.

This was really interesting, and it kept my attention the whole time, which not much does for 20 minutes straight.

My friend introduced me to this back in September, its pretty cool, but I have kinda slacked off on playing with it. She showed it to me because it helped her with her anxiety.

I'm trying to think of good powerups, I really like the idea of that. The past few days I've been using hugging my dog, and going into the bathroom and taking breaks. The former one is actually really handy for me, to just have alone time breaks if I'm in a really social setting.

    • AD/HD Humor: "Hyperactive", parody of Imagine Dragons's "Radioactive"
      By LikeMinded
      Like the rest of y'all, I've had to suffer through AD/HD probably since at least the age of 5.
       
      But there can be a humorous side to it, I hope.  I wrote this parody of a recent hit song and hope nobody gets offended.

    • New hair
      By crtclms
      My hair stripped of it's (natural) brown pigment, so I was kind of very blonde, and then "stained" it coral. Stain doesn't last as long, but he mixed up some stain for me to take home to do touch ups!

    • word association thread
      By blue22
      With this word game, think of two things, then the next person thinks of how those two things can be the same, and after the person answers how they can be the same, that person comes up with two things and the next person thinks of how those two things can be the same and then they name two things.
      like:
      blueberry pie and old books--
       
      both smell good and both are enjoyable to devour--one by reading and one by eating,
       
      so now I put two things
       
      a bowl of apples and a cat
       
      someone come up with how those two things are the same, write it, then put two unlikely things together
