    Here’s a couple, how often do you have to pay late fees on your bills? And how often do you get overdrawn at the bank? I find that my ADD is very expensive 😉

      Yeah, can we deduct all these ADHD expenses from our taxes or something?

    Can you talk on your phone in a place where other conversations are happening? If you are on your phone and I start talking to you, what happens?

    People with ADHD often have a very hard time ignoring those other voices and if you talk to them when they are on the phone, they lose both conversations instantly.

      Interesting, thanks for adding those!

      It makes me think of the question of having background noise (e.g., music) while you work. I’ve noticed people with ADHD tend to fall into one of two extremes in this regard: either they need the extra stimulation of some background music to help them focus, or they need absolute silence to keep from being distracted.
