With ADD or ADHD, we often aren’t aware of what’s happening (tho I’m not sure this is limited to ADD/HD).
There I was, cruising down the highway at 72 mph. Listening to the radio, squeezing a cork in my free hand to build up my grip, and rehearsing a psalm in my mind.
Suddenly it hit me — “I’m multitasking!!!”
With ADD or ADHD we’re supposed to be extra good at this. Is it a good thing? Maybe it would safer to just uni-task at driving? But on the other hand (please note that this is a very subtle pun here; you’ve been alerted), but on the other hand I’m pretty sure that squeezing the cork helps me to focus better.
