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.”

 

Please share this post online with the hashtag #ExplainAdultADHD to help explain adult ADHD to non-ADHD adults so they understand us better.

  1. @KariTaber not being able to read people is more common for people with autism. I’m not saying that it can’t be ADHD related, just that I’d check out autism if you haven’t already.
