Yeah, I don’t take being interrupted very well either. Especially if I’m kind of “in the zone” with an activity or something. It’s hard for me to shift focus when I’m engaged, and I can be guilty of lashing out at my family sometimes. I always apologize and make sure I explain that breaking concentration really upsets me, and that I’m sorry for overreacting.

Now if we’re talking about interrupting conversation, then I would be more likely to be the one interrupting or speaking more than my fair share. I’m still working on improving that lol. I’ve always got a lot of ideas and thoughts to share, so I’m working on trying to hold myself back a little. I hate being rude.
