I've been called weird quiet a few times because I didn't make surface talk when introduced to new people. I would listen for an 'in' during the conversation, and most of the times wouldn't be able to relate. I stayed quiet rather then fake a connection, and as someone who's comfortable in silence the ones who aren't get very awkward.
I definitely don’t sleep at night but I haven’t taken a nap since I was 5 years old. Can any of you nap..and if so..how?
Also, isn’t 12 PM midDAY and not midNIGHT?
Meme the meme to meme on the meme to the meme. WEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!
Edit: does meme mean to mean to meme? Beep boop. Ahhhhhhhhhhhh!!!
I am not officially diagnosed with adhd but my counsellor, my friends, my family and me are pretty sure I have adhd. I haven’t been diagnosed because the wait list to get tested is 2yrs where I live or I can pay $3000 Canadian to go through a private psychologist. It would be quite hard for me to get on the wait list so my only option for testing would be to pay $3000. I want to know how effective people find adhd medications because I don’t want to pay $3000 to get tested if the meds don’t really help anyways. I want to know about people’s experiences taking adhd medication and whether or not it’s worth paying for the test.
Anyone else repeat things they just said to themselves to hear what it sounds like? In line with finishing people's sentences because you know what they're going to say and have no patience. Lol
If this doesn't scream ADHD then I don't know what does
Idk where I found it or why I bought it. Thing's a fuckin unit as well.
Warning: emotional rant below.
I work in phone customer service and hate it, but it pays the bill. At this job I rarely have rude customers so it could be worse.
But today…today this lady was awful. She wanted me to go item by item on her credit card statement and try to calculate why her payments weren’t adding up. However, she’s a nut job and pays off the total on her credit card with EVERY SINGLE TRANSACTION she makes. Even it was $2.25. There is a payment for that. The trouble is, I am not a credit card specialist. I’m basically a receptionist with limited capabilities. I offer to transfer her to a specialist and idk if her Karen kicked in or what. But she starts going on about how I’m refusing to help her and she’s filing a complaint against me and so on and so forth. It was awful. Her tone, her demeanor, her words felt like a train hit me. The worst part is she booked a 30 min appt with me and wanted me to review 3 months of these transactions in this 30min…
I had to get a supervisor involved. The first time ever at this job (and I’ve been here a year). I carry right now 100% in customer satisfaction YTD so this is tough for me.
I know I shouldn’t cry and felt ridiculous but something about her triggered me so bad. My friend had to remind me that my ADHD perfectionist and rejection sensitivity and general people-pleasing/fawn reaction is coming out. Which makes sense.
This is the crap that sucks though. Essentially a lady was mean to me and I cried like a baby about it after. And my negative thoughts are going to be playing on a loop through the weekend. All because my brain is a sensitive prick.
Hear me out... If all the subreddits go private, there's a good chance at least some of us will get bored/angry/whatever and do something productive, since we effectively can't use reddit.
I'm also betting two of us will build the first part to an amazing platform that would rival this one if it were ever finished.
When I have caffeine it makes me sleepy. Im trying to figure out if it’s an adhd thing or not.
I’m a person born in the 70s. I had an inconclusive assessment as a child. After a lifetime of knowing I was different to most, reddit helped me identify my ADHD. It’s taken about 2 years to go from my first doctors appointment to picking up my prescription. I used to be apprehensive about meds, but after all the posts I read on reddit, I’m looking forward to trying.
There’s so much I want to say, but I’ll write too much. What I do want to say is, If you’ve shared your experiences on here, thank you. I wouldn’t have got this far without them
