“It’s like a room full of puppies and candies.”

ADHD infoChildren often say it best.

My child said this as he heard me speaking about ADHD.

I asked him what he meant, and he said it’s what a room seems like to him.  I asked him what an empty room seems like, and he described how he will notice the shapes, curves, and corners of the walls; bumps on the ceiling; light seeping under the door; and the texture of the floor, adding that carpet’s like a maze of threads.  He concluded, “Even an empty room is filled with so much.  It’s insane.”

  1. I understand fully what he means. Lived it my entire life. It’s weird when you find out not everyone does. My son has just been diagnosed and I hate it for him. So many challenges but so many gifts too. We’re all pretty smart. Too many thoughts at once. Sentence structure sucks….too many thoughts to worry about stopping for commas, punctuation, or paragraphs. The thoughts flow out of the structure is ignored 🙂.
