      social: can seem rude if straightforward or not understand social cues, can forget to text people back because of poor object permanence (if it's not in my field of view, i forget it exists), can be extremely sensitive to perceived or actual rejection, hard time forming lasting bonds, etc sleep: thoughts can keep you awake because they won't stop racing, you can be hyperactive before bed and feel the need to move constantly, scrolling through your phone or other forms of entertainment can make you lose track of time, etc focus: poor focus even when you want to engage, focusing too hard on looking interested on what the person is saying that you forget to actually focus, constantly spacing out, hyperfocusing on things that interest you that you can forget to eat or do anything else, waiting can be miserable, executive function can be really hard (ex: easily distracted while cleaning, struggling to switch tasks, trouble starting and finishing tasks, having a hard time getting up to go shower or do other things that'd benefit you, etc) impulsivity: want to start on a new project and stopping halfway because it's no longer interesting, buying things that seem cool because "new" is what makes you feel good and your dopamine shoots up and these are just a couple of the many things adhd does, but it's not all debilitating. it can allow you to be a very creative thinker, energetic, persistent, very verbal, etc
