It’s called dysgraphia, another ADHD comorbidity.
This might be related to dyscoordination (basal ganglia, cerebellum), being in a hurry, and trying to get a flood of ideas down on paper before we lose them.
My handwriting caused me lots of trouble. It’s only in recent years I’ve been able to improve it at all.
Finally I saw that if I wrote an L slanting over to the right, much more than seemed reasonable, it would actually look like it was supposed to. Then I found that paying extra attention to the L’s slowed me down and that improved it all. Then I found that I need to draw an R, not write it, and then the same for an S. So now my handwriting is semi legible (most of the time).
Principles of making your life better even with ADHD:
Recognize that something is problem, not just life as it is.
Assume that every problem has a solution.
Personal Note O the Day:
Now that the handwriting problem is “solved,” I use the computer all the time instead. If only I could get it to work! Traded dysgraphia for dytechnologica.
