How much does your ADHD interfere with your daily life? In what ways?

      It makes me seem rude sometimes. A coworker or family member will be trying to explain a problem and it’s like I’ve already heard the problem/story and then telling me is painful. Like I know what the issue is within 5 sentences but they keep talking and talking. Then I cut them off and just give the solution or opinion. Also it makes me hyper aware of the mood or vibe at a party or bar. Like I can notice any tension or conflict in the room like spider man. Who’s pissed at some comment someone made or who is angry in the corner, or who’s about to cause trouble. It’s just weird. Like even in the supermarket at the deli I feel like I can sense I pissed the guy off because I asked for ham sliced thin hahah. I think the hyper awareness is exhausting.

      It makes me hyperactive in thought and reality. I think, think, think. It's like a toddler with an infinite power supply running around in your head and the rest of your mind being the adult trying to keep it clean.

      I can’t even think of every way it affects me off the top of my head because my memory is so bad! Lol

      Poor impulse control, time blindness, hyperfocusing, audio processing issues, major memory issues, and it's really good at ramping up my anxiety :p

      I lose time and my focus. And if I'm trying to clean the house I can't look at my phone or let myself sit down even to eat or I lose all motivation. Same at work.

      Something what happens to me every day is forgetfulness. I frequently forget to take something when I go out. I might also forget some task or chore that I wanted to do. I try to use notes and reminders, but it doesn't help me all the time.

      Hating things I used to love, difficulties at work and just the guilt of not being able to be my best self SUCK

      In SOOOO many ways! For example i cant finish a conversation. I have a hard time processing information. I have a hard time committing to a job. Sometimes i have too much interest and will obsess over it and sometimes i hate the things i use to love
