Final installment of a four part series. Part 3 is here.

Disclaimer: Not every person with ADHD will have any or all of these. Displaying anything on this list doesn’t mean a person has ADHD. The things on this list aren’t unique to ADHD.

16. The sunny side of armageddon

Through a lifetime of negativity that is constantly bombarding us, we have developed a defense mechanism of optimism that is infectious and hard to destroy. We can see a light at the end of the tunnel, beyond the shuffling horde, and we’ll tell you about it.

17. “It’s ok. Go ahead...”

Practical and realistic is something you maybe didn’t expect, but if somebody gets bit, we won’t hesitate to do the right thing, even if it’s us. We’ll understand.

18. What you see is what you get

ADHD people are genuine and authentic. We don’t hide anything. In a situation where secrets end lives we skip the drama.

19. Canary in the coalmine

Our sensitivities mean we will sense and express a problem even before the rest of the team has realized anything is wrong. That seemingly innocent person we just took into the group? We know what that scrape really came from.

20. Maverick

Even before the apocalypse we looked for excitement everywhere. Now that works to the team’s advantage. We will be quick to take risks, volunteer first for dangerous missions, running through zombie-infested streets to rescue babies and all those other hero things. No photos, please.
