    Looking back these can seem amusing now.
    Frantically searching the house for my glasses, give up and grab my spare pair go to put them on “CLICK” as they hit the ones I was looking for.
    Frantically looking everywhere for my car keys before noticing they’re in my hand.
    Getting some orange juice from the fridge getting a glass from the cupboard pour a glass, go watch TV enjoying my orange juice, go back into kitchen for a snack open cupboard for a plate “why is the orange juice in the cupboard? “

    Well I finally remembered this one,” Given up ” by Linkin park,it doesn’t speak to me, but it sums up all the worst parts of my A.D.D. especially the emotional dysregulation.

    The strange thing is, I’ll be burned out and exhausted when I get home but my brain will still be in overdrive.

    Hahaha! nice, we have a new bookkeeper and I had to explain “buttons aren’t toys” and “I can’t do this without my third arm” one day (Hitch hikers guide to the galaxy, one of my favorite movies).
    Ugh now you have me thinking of an episode of start trek next gen, where there was a race that only communicated in metaphors, which is fine if you know the history and context, like you and your husband and his animation quotes.
    It would be interesting to try and communicate using only movie and television quotes.

    That’s what angers me the most, their unwillingness to educate themselves and understand the hell we go through, having to live in their neurotypical world, why is it we can understand them and their problems but they can’t and won’t understand ours.

    I am agonizingly lonely, I too have had the “friends till the end ” friends, yeah the end was three of them betraying me.
    I keep people as acquaintances, I don’t let them get close enough to use, hurt or abuse me, it hurts but it hurts less than having your heart broken.

    Sometimes it’s not a specific word that’s a trigger with me, many times I’ll have a problem and need to talk it out, so who do you usually turn to? Your mother, well a lot of times she’ll chide me, and go on about how she had it so much worse.
    My whole life, my problems are nothing compared to how bad she had it.
    So I guess someones dismissive attitude is a trigger.

    Well, since they won’t let me post a link to it, I’ll just copy the description.
    Quote from ADDitude page about RSD

    “Rejection sensitive dysphoria (RSD) is an intense emotional response caused by the perception that you have disappointed others in your life and that, because of that disappointment, they have withdrawn their love, approval, or respect. The same painful reaction can occur when you fail or fall short of your rather high goals and expectations. RSD commonly occurs with ADHD, and causes extreme emotional pain that plagues both children and adults — even when no actual rejection has taken place.”

    When I stopped for some karaage curry, the restaurant was busy but the noise was mostly tolerable, until an infant started screeching, it was if someone stabbed me in the left ear with a screwdriver, my left eyelid would start twitching every time the kid screamed, so thankful I always get my food to go.

    With just ten mg, from what I’ve read it usually only lasts six to eight hours.

    What are you taking and, When do you start yawning?
    I take Concerta extended release, I usually only get like that when I miss or skip a dose, and the methylphenidate in my system has all been metabolized, then I yawn constantly, if you’re taking a low dose or fast acting it could be wearing off.

    It would be funny if I could have asystem busy icon on my glasses when I stop mid word talking to someone and a thought interrupts.

    I spend plenty of time around people, and NO! you don’t get used to it, I have learned how to avoid certain situations, so I don’t get overwhelmed.
    I hope one day someone makes an actual feature length film that shows NT’s what it’s like for us and how excruciating it is when sensory overload hits.
