That’s a cool analogy, and it seems a bit like ADHD creativity on your part..

Personally I’ve kind of given up trying to explain my issues to others as they never seem to understand and worse, sometimes are just judgemental or dismissive. But I guess sometimes people might not seem to understand, but actually they just need to think about it for a while, mull it over.

I have had more success in this regard by talking to people online however, so I guess it’s possible to find “real-life” people who understand.
