What ADHD Feels Like, #2

Thinking. I think

In honor of October, ADHD Awareness Month, I am sharing some snippets from my ADHD fantasy fiction, describing what living with ADHD actually feels like to me.

“‘Are you still thinking?’

‘Always,’ said Kay. Though she wasn’t quite sure what it was she was thinking about. There was so much to think about, so much to marvel at, everything equally urgent and important.

Or maybe not, but each new thought burst in forcefully, trying to kill all others and reign briefly, violently failing. She wondered if thinking might constitute strange behavior, too. Maybe just overthinking. Could one overthink overthinking?”

Living with ADHD can be a magical wonderland; sometimes charming, sometimes dark. This is the inspiration for the ADHD fantasy I write.
