Have you noticed in the AD(H)D person a "thin skin"?

Have you noticed in the AD(H)D person a "thin skin"?

Almost any parent with an AD(H)D child, or any adult living with an AD(H)D spouse, will have noticed in the AD(H)D person a touchiness, a "thin skin".

People with AD(H)D are forever told that they are "too sensitive" or that they should stop being "so touchy."

One might as well advise a child with hay fever to stop being "so allergic."
