Part of #ExplainAdultADHD. Crowdsourcing ADHD adults to help reduce ignorance and stigma by non-ADHD adults against our fellow adults with ADHD.

Share the most important point you want non-ADDers to know about what it’s really like living with Adult ADHD, I post it on my blog & share it on social media with the hashtag #ExplainAdultADHD and encourage others to share it. Anonymously or full name.

I Have A Very Hard Time “Reading” People.

By @KariTaber

“For example, I can know you very, very well and still misinterpret your body language and facial expressions.

I cannot always tell how you’re feeling, or what you’re about to say. I often take things too literally because I can’t take a joke.

Misunderstandings occur on a daily basis.

I’m not sure if other ADDers struggle with this. I’d love some feedback.”
