Re: Trouble explaining things?
rheanna, yes. Writing is so simple, yet I sound like a total moron when speaking. I've always thought it would be nice if job interviews could be conducted through instant messaging, rather than face-to-face. And I really admire a good joke teller!
smz3, that's exactly it. My daughter also has ADHD, and our conversations are hilarious. We'll be on 16 different tangents, then forget what we were talking about in the first place, even if it was important. Of course, we don't get a whole lot accomplished that way, but we're very entertaining to whomever is listening. As far as trying to come up with words when you need them -- why DOES that happen, anyway? I'd feel Alzheimer's bound if I hadn't been this way my whole life.
