Can you guess what I am thinking Now? ADD and "mindreading"

How manytimes have you said, "Darnet get out of my head!"?
Ok this has been a lil cooky but I have noticed that we ADD people sometimes has the same thoughts as other ADD people. It's almost like we can read each others minds. Sometimes not just ADD people sometimes I can read the Non ADDers as well. We ADD people share the same disablities, some more than others, but do we also share the same minds?

Me and mom(ADD too) think the same thoughts at the same time,
but there could be two explainations for that..we live together so we pretty much know what the other is thinking....we have a ADD link.

Now on the other hand, I do not live with any, but in some post, I can guess what you are going to say before I read it. It's the same with ADD room..even in chat we sometimes type the same things at the same time or if not one of us is thinking it.

This has facinated me for some time now..Can we share a link in our minds?

Any thoughts?

Of course we can understand what the other ADDers mean to say,sometimes even before the other knows themselves.......Its a gift that only we can share......besides know one else could possibly understand what we really mean, especially when we don;t seem to know until the thought comes out ourselves,GOT that>Good i knew ya would..........now will somebody please COMPLETE this thought! because i know thumbuddy else out there is on the same wavelength as I.........LOL

I don't always know what someone is thinking exactly. But, I feel other people's emotions. That is one of the reasons I am such a loner. It drives me crazy. I am super sensitive to thier aura. I can't stand it when I go somewhere in a perfectly good mood, get thier and start feeling anger, hate, confusion, love, pain from someone else. I have goten beeter at blocking it. But, sometimes the real strong emotions break thru my barrier. I once walked into this church and just sat down and bawled, the lady in the pew next to me was so stricken with grief (Although hidind it well) that I had to move away from her. Later I found out that a long time friend of hers had died and she was just coming to grios with it. Point is, reading minds can be good and bad.

krisp will become famous soon enough
When I'm around my sisters and their children, that happens to me all the time. I'll hear a word or words in my head, and before I can even say it, one of them says it! (Need I say that ADD is rampant in my family? ) I can sometimes experience the same with close friends, and the dh, but with non-ADD types it certainly happens less often.

Sixes don't look at it as a curse,...think of it as a gift..although it may drive you crazy sometimes. I guess it can be good and bad. You has a point there

I have found that with Non Adders it is harder to read their thoughts, but sometimes their faces..you need not read their thought..sometimes those nudnicks are so transparent.

Oh my gosh Sixes!! I do the same thing!! I feel people's emotions, where it becomes a major problem for me, is when someone gets angry but decides not to talk about it, and I can feel they are angry and make them talk about it anyways. I mean, I'm ADD, and I get frustrated over silly things, why can't others?? Also my roommate is very depressed and if I'm with him too long, I also get depressed... its a toughy.

I am more intune with other's I don't know if it's actually considered mind reading though. I've been known to leave my hubby standing alone while I go and talk to someone. lol

here is the standard discussion after:
Why didn't you introduce me?
I don't know her name
Then why did you just spend the last half hour talking to her?
Cause she needed me too

lol leaves him completly baffled: but I have a theory. When your mind is focused on a task your sense's close to outside stimuli but an ADD'ers mind is alway's open therefore so are the sense's
