adhd - terms n conditions

well, first thing should be that I consider myself to be adhd, and that that is the ‘source’ of most of ‘my’ information.

This is in the face of that I saw an adhd specialist psychiatrist 3 weeks ago, and his assessment was that I am not adhd, but have a “processing disorder” – I think he meant an auditory one.. 121 more words

The difference between shyness and misunderstandings

I’m shy, but I also struggle with the disconnection between autistic and allistic styles of communication. I see these as separate issues, but people seem to confuse them. 701 more words
