Finally registered. Procrastination waning, only took 15 months.

Hi, I'm 37, male, and was tested for/diagnosed with moderate/severe adult ADHD in Oct 2016.

I have about a billion hobbies/interests. Heavy Woodworking/processing, light metalworkibg/welding, video games, movies, Electronics (audio), snowboarding, mountain biking, target shooting/making ammunition, getting my jeep absolutely nasty. And stopping now, the list wont end... I like to make things, perfect...perfectly imperfect... oh no... here we go. problem #27635.

Ok. I'll get this disclaimer posted here. I, very rarely, mean offense. I am sometimes quite direct/short/blunt. Other times i cant get a two sentences tied together to make a 7. I really truly appreciate direct communication.

If you leave it to me to guess at meaning or infer; I might read the same thing three different ways, 30 minutes apart. If I am offensive, please tell me: I do not wish to be.
If I seem abrasive to you, please send me a PM to let me know exactly why you see it that way. I am working on learning some social skills that I never knew existed. I've only had a year of experience with some things. And yes I felt quite idiotic when, at 37, I started noticing new social cues and asking people what they meant.

Hi, polyspecific.

Nice to meet you!

lol, I relate....I read for years, joined two years ago and I finally am posting.

I relate to the 2,58375 projects you have going!

You don’t sound abrasive at all, but thank you for being understanding. That’s respectful of you.

Look forward to your posts and “welcome” to the forums.

Sincerely,

Lash
