8 Things People Don’t Realize You’re Doing Because You Have ADHD


1. You accidentally interrupt others a lot.

When you have ADHD, you have a tendency to interrupt other people. You aren’t doing it because you aren’t interested in what they’re saying or trying to be rude, however. Frequent interruptions are a product of the impulsivity associated with the disorder, and often times when you do talk over people, you don’t realize you’re doing so until after the fact and always feel embarrassed after because it was sincerely a mistake.

2. You get frustrated easily.

ADHD does not lend a lot of patience, especially with your mind being “GO! GO! GO!” all the time. When a task takes longer than you expect it to, or if you’re having trouble learning a new skill, you feel frustrated more quickly than others who do not have ADHD.

3. You have low self esteem.

People often think that ADHD is a quirky catchall term for having a little trouble concentrating or having a bit of excess energy, but when you live with it, it’s truly difficult. Many of the symptoms associated with ADHD make navigating through school, work, and relationships much, much harder. And when these areas in your life suffer as a result of your ADHD, your self esteem does too because sometimes you attribute these issues to something wrong with you as opposed to being products of your disorder.
