Hi Nimthiriel!

I’m so used to ‘blanking’ it’s weird!

Have to remind myself constantly to ‘be present’..when talking to others.

My ADD/HD (High Def!) friends and I have figured out it’s like having your brain or attention split into two parts. One side is looking out towards whomever you are listening/talking to. The other side is looking inwards at the ‘circus of your mind’ as we call it.

When the outside stimulii is less than the ‘circus in your mind’ then guess where your attention goes!

To The Circus! (hence ‘blanking’)

That’s the only way I can describe it for myself.

: )

When one of us goes off…we laugh and tell them they were at ‘the circus’…usually what they were thinking about was much more interesting than the conversation anyway!!
