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

When I'm hyperfocusing and I don't hear you speaking to me;



- using shock tactics like coming up and shouting "HEY" loudly is only ok if the house is on fire or some other dire emergency. If you'd like a taste of this experience I can get a safety horn and awaken you from a sound sleep. Hyperfocus means I'm relaxed and happy how about a nice rub on my arm?


- being angry because I didn't hear you is useless and only serves to make you feel better while I eat another guilt sandwich. Why do I like you again?


- complaining often and long sufferingly about how you have to put up with me not paying attention to you merely because I wasn't able to hear you leaves me helpless and without remedy, accept that if I could attend like you I would.
