I'm interested especially in people with ADHD. Talking on the phone is an important way to keep connected to people and socially happy, especially as people are so mobile these days, and it seems harder than ever to stay in touch; not because of time but because I don't like to call people. I've been working hard trying to figure out why I don't love talking on the phone like I used to when I was much younger, and I think I have it figured out.
When there was an actual phone, with a cord to the wall, it felt very grounding. I could sit on my bed, or on my couch, and give my complete focus to the conversation in an environment I had intentionally created for the purpose. There was a place and time and purpose to the connection and when I was having it I felt really present and happy.
