I’ve been in situations of hyper focus my entire life. My parents used to yell at me if I got “engrossed “ in a TV show or movie. Or sometimes I would catch myself digging the lint out of the hair dryer!! Time was of little importance for me, and I couldn’t help myself.
It’s usually the small, insignificant things that would hold my attention. I never understood why. I was diagnosed 2 months ago, so I’m hoping that things will be a little easier for me. Hope this helps make sense to you.
