Re: Dos and Don't with an AD/HDer

How about:
* Don't forget that I have a short attention span. If you spend 20 minutes telling me an anecdote with tons of repetition and no apparent point, don't be offended if I am doing something else by the time you are finished speaking. (I have had to give this speech to both of my parents - they should know better.)
* Try to remember that I am bored senseless with many of the activities designed by normals. If I occasionally can't restrain frustration with the unoriginal banality of your conversation, I apologize.
* If you aren't my fiancee or financial planner, I don't really care how you think finances / bill-paying should be organized. Thanks for the advice, but seriously, I'll manage on my own.
