10 Things You Need To Understand If You Love Someone With ADD
6. We don't regulate our emotions that well.
Or I suppose another way you can say it is that we feel our feelings fully.
7. We have some social anxiety.
I can't tell you how many times I've worried about what other people must think of me. Of course, that's faded with time. No I just say f*ck it and be myself. It's kind of awesome.
8. We read people well.
Folks with ADD, at least in my experience, tend to be perceptive and sensitive people. It's like you can feel a vibration coming off someone physically. We're very empathic people. As a result, we're awesome at reading people.
9. We're unorganized.
You should see my desk right now. There is, however, a method to my madness.
10. We need space to roam.
This is why windowless cinder block classrooms didn't work for me. This is why yardless apartments don't work for me. This is why offices have never worked for me.
