(Sounds exactly like me!)
My brother was diagnosed at a very young age in the early 70’s. I feel I was over looked because of the gravity of his ADHD.
I met a lifelong friend today for lunch, she called me out about cutting her off when she was speaking and changing the subject. I felt a bit of shame, because she said I was ADD. I thought about it afterwards, and think it was more that I was bored with what she was saying or not saying, not finishing stories she had started, or answering questions I had made. Is that ADD?
I later decided to send her a text apologizing for that, because she obviously felt a certain way about it. I never think it is o.k. to hurt another persons feelings, especially if it makes them feel not heard or unimportant. Lesson learned, I will make of an effort to be patient and listen.
Thankful, Grateful and Blessed!
