Can we hit the 'block' button?

Navigating life can get a bit hectic. Technology has our minds on overdrive in general — and when you have ADHD, things can get taken to a whole new level.

Romantic relationships, relationships with kids and family, work responsibilities and just traversing through the day kicks up all kinds of thoughts — but it's those everyday discussions with ourselves that make things really hairy.

We talked to some people with ADHD and they all agreed. The conversations they have in their own heads oftentimes feel like a bad text message chain from which one cannot escape. OK, sometimes these convos are pretty entertaining but can be a tad annoying nonetheless.

If you have ADHD, these texts are probably all too relatable.
