ADHD in Women
The dreaded phone
Anybody have any suggestions regarding phone calls. Not sure if this is an adhd thing or just me but I absolutely HATE talking on the phone!!! I avoid it like the plague. I screen calls, only answering them if I know it will be quick and painless. This is a problem for my extended family, I think, because we have moved across the country and they wAnt to keep in touch this way. I kind of feel that this is a waste of time (I know it sounds horrible), but when I get on the phone, I can’t concentrate and multitask and do other things. I have three kids, 3,8,10, that keep me busy so I feel sitting and talking on the phone for a half an hour, I can’t spare. I feel so horrible writing this, but I really can’t stand it. I’d rather send a long email at night when I can relax and focus on what I’m saying. Any way to let friends and family in on this?
