Hi Paul,

When you say that you have a hard time minding your own biz, and try to help w/o being asked. I do the same thing when people tell something I give advice that is not asked for. I think it’s because I am afraid if I don’t, the may think I am indifferent. Your probably over think (like me and probably most of the adhd population) it’s frustrating and hard to stop. I think adhd people get frustrated because we don’t see things as others do. When you communicate with people and they are reading you wrong could be you are not relaxed in that conversation and feel is you have something to prove. ADHD can cause a lot of low self esteem. I know I feel like sometimes I have to prove that do have intellectual capability. Hope this helped some.
