What do we mean by spirituality? (forget Webster). Spirituality means to me at least an acknowledgement that there is something beyond our direct recognition that has an influence in our lives and which in some way we can pay attention to and relate to. Can you come up with a better definition? Probably. I hope so.
What does that have to do with ADD or ADHD? Well, we find it hard to meditate. Prayer and or meditation are two good ways of calming ourselves (regardless of our beliefs), which we ADDer’s can certainly use. ADD or ADHD affects our relationships with others, which I consider a spiritual aspect of life (tho not included in my “definition” above).
On the more positive side, ADD/ADHD tends to make us more creative and to see a bigger picture and notice more (the upside of distractable?) so we might tend to have a more open mind and be more accessible to spiritual experience.
And if our spiritual life is a source of support to us, God knows we can use all the support we can get.
