Those are fascinating insights Raging ADHD. My mom once told me that I made her feel stupid sometimes and I had no idea why. But it was the way I would say things. Like, she’d say something she believed and I’d say “Well, that’s stupid,” just meaning that whatever factual claim was being made wasn’t true. She took it as “You’re stupid” (she also has ADD).
But the idea of Garbage In/Garbage Out as a means of controlling the blurts is great. I have a hard time with negativity because of all the horrific shit going on in the world right now. But I will bear that in mind as i continue trying to manage my ADD.
