I think as we get older we realize that our ADD is a two-edged sword. I do the same “blurting” stuff as you. Sometimes I end up castigating myself in my mind and feeling down about it. But, at other times it is a strength because sometimes issues need addressed and you have the guts to do it -and thus get the ball rolling! I suggest sitting back and taking a look…when has this behavior been a strength for you…even a gift? You could then change your profile name from “defective” to something more TRUE and positive…like, “gifted!”
