Many people won’t understand and there is not much you can do about it. Because of that, my ADD is very personal to me. I don’t talk about it with many people at all because I know they cannot understand. But I know. And knowing is helpful for me whether others understand or not.

But yeah, I really don’t mention it…at all…ever. And I DEFINITELY don’t blame my shortcomings on it. (Even if it is 100% ADD’s fault)
