I’ve had this “issue” for a while but now it’s getting more and more extreme. I would put on a show/tv series or a film and I need to pause it every few minutes.
Either to get another drink, another snack, use the bathroom, make a phone call, check a website, go to the other room to pet the sleeping dog, make a circle around the house, completely pointless stuff. Any excuse to pause it - I’ll take it. I’d spend about 2 to 3 hours watching a 1 hour show. I can’t sit down and just watch the damn thing like a normal person, but I don’t know why. It’s almost as if it’s “too much stimulation” for me to follow dialogues and plot twists for a long perid of time. As if I need to pause it to absorb all the information and then get mentally prepared to focus on the storyline again.
Uhm, so is this ADD? I don’t know much about ADD but I was wondering whether this may be a sign of it. Or if other people are the same.
