How has ADHD benefited you?
Group, I have been reading all your discussions and replies dealing with the troubles, problems, and heartaches dealing with ADHD. I want to turn the tables around a bit and ask has your ADHD ever benefited you?
Is there something you can do with your mind that most people can’t do or find difficult doing?
Can you think up good ideas without effort?
Can you fully learn a new subject in less than a day where most people take 3 to 4 months?
Are you more creative and inventive than most people?
For me, I can resolve very complicated software glitches within a few minutes where my coworkers take several hours. I can also drive long distance for hours without getting tired.
Share with us how ADHD benefits you or puts you in an advantage over non-ADD folks.
