    Default Are you always distracted?

    The other day I went to a pre-halloween party and what I noticed is that everyone was dancing but I was watching everyone and everything and then I notice that I wasn't dancing at all. Friends usually told me to dance but it wasn't that I didn't want to dance, It was that I was checking the place, like if I were expecting someone or something to happen.

    Have you ever had an experience like I had? if you want you can talk about anything similar, something funny, something scary, something sad, etc.

    Well, I can't stop my brain from receiving signals from the outside world, my own reaction to these signals and then processing them over and over and over again...so...yes...I am always distracted. And as I mostly have my headphones on, it doesn't help either. Ooh...shinies...wait, what were we talking about again?

    Yeh, I'm often distracted watching everything on the dance floor. Dancing is sort of boring by comparison, unless it engages me somehow in romance or stupidity.

    Some stuff similar, not exactly the same.
    I just seem to focus too much on things going on around me and then get tired and zone out. I guess it's pretty easy to get distracted when you look around yourself at other people, especially if they're active. I often find myself watching passersby and wondering what they're doing or going to do... it distracts me quite a bit.
    However, my thoughts are the most distracting thing of all ^^" when someone says something and it reminds me of something, so I think of that then realise the conversations moved off that topic >>"

    I'm the ADHD poster child. I have ZERO attention span. My brain is into so many things all the time, it is really nutty. I can't tuen my brain off. I am not kidding.

    I really can't figure out sky's Halloween avatar. What is going on with that bat? It's like boobs with bat ears and wings??? There's an obvious solution but I'm missing it somehow ... :confused: kind of funny though

    Glad to help you with never finding a cure for your distractedness here.

    I was in the middle of typing a response to this thread, when I distracted myself with my cat, who's just sitting there doing nothing.
