This is a great story! I don’t have ADHD/ ADD, but my 19-year-old son does and I’m a child psychologist with a specialization in ADHD. I think it’s so important for others to know what someone with ADHD experiences. That’s why I love asking kids with ADHD to tell me what it’s like – in their heads – when they struggle to focus. So many tell me that they try to listen, but little noises, like the sound of someone writing with a pencil even, bring them off task. They say, “I want to focus, but my brain won’t let me.” Adults with ADD/ ADHD are no different.
