Re: Thinking outside the box:is it common in adhd?

I looked back at your post again. While I stand by my earlier post still, I wonder if in addition to thinking outside the box, if you have some communication issues that can be solved and help you keep more friends.

Like if they aren't understanding you because you speak in long paragraphs while they speak in short sentences. This isn't actually about outside thinking, it's communications.

I tend to ramble myself irl sometimes and frankly even I wouldn't be able to understand myself when I do. We might never be perfect at it, but I do think we can get better at being more succinct speakers with practice and/or input from helpful, positive people.
