I’m working on a longer performance piece about Adult ADD and I’d like to ask you to share your stories. It’s important that we do that. We learn from each other than we aren’t the only ones who have messy desks or get mad at interruptions or feel we haven’t really done anything with our lives. Also, it can give our partners, friends, and the public insight into the adult side of ADD. We are dealing with different issues than kids or teens.
In this section, I’m asking for your stories about being interrupted. Do you handle it well? When you’re focused (hyper-focused?) on something and the phone rings or your S.O. comes into the room to talk about something that you know could wait, do you calmly put what you’re doing aside, or do you explode? Do you have stories about that? If not, let me know that too because maybe I just need to chill.
To add your story, just click the word balloon above and to the right of this entry.
You can do it anonymously if you like, though I’d prefer to have your information so I can do follow up. If I end up using your story in a performance, it’ll be anonymous, so don’t worry about that!
