To the outside world, there will always seem to be something a little bit off about me. My ADHD may never make sense to those around me. But when others ask this is how I make them see:
The activity of my mind reminds me of an orchestra of the most talented musicians; first chair worthy performers,creative and colorful lost in their own craft. The Orchestra gets it right some of the time, but for the most part there is little harmony and everyone’s playing their instrument over the others, pulling it together every now and then. The orchestra of the best musicians can’t get it right, because there is no maestro to take the lead. The most challenging symptom of my ADHD The inconsistency my brain’s Executive Functioning make it difficult for me to sort and organize the details of the big picture.
I have come to accept the fact that I will need external supports to pull together the details that others deal with naturally and with little effort.
How do you discribe your ADD/ADHD to others so they can see?
