I have so many similar experiences to so many of you fellow posters! I have ADD and introvert. I enjoy social occaisions but afterward don’t know what any conversations were about as they get all jumbled. I can’t really participate as I can barely finish a thought but if I am in a comfortable place I enjoy the swirl of talk and laughter.
I think this inability to follow the words of one person is related to my inability to hear the words in songs. I tend to hear the music and can’t distinguish the words unless they are very distinct above the music.
As well, I have never been able to sleep to a radio no matter how low as when the announcer or advertising would talk I would wake up immediately as I’m unable to ignore talking.
