Now and Not Now

Now and Not Now

Everyone's experience with ADHD is different but what the book ADHD 2.0 shares is how ADHD affects individuals with a warped sense of time.

Explaining that the passage of time feels different for people with ADHD. You might need to get ready for something in the future such as getting ready for work, but as that is in the future and not "now" it can create space for a ADHD brain to search for other stimuli. Since they can become engrossed in that stimuli and the "now", the passage of time is not noticed. Leading to the classic traits of ADHD, inattention and impulsivity.
