This may seem unconventional, and some of you may disagree, but when I meet new people, I tell them that I have ADD. I believe that by explaining my “flighty-ness” up front, it thwarts misunderstandings later.
I describe how I may fidget and bounce around; and that I may appear to not be paying attention, by actually I’m trying very hard to listen and be attentive. I’ve learned that people like having friends who care and listen; something that I have a hard time doing.
