was bored

anonymous asked:

I often get overwhelmingly bored to the point where it feels like I'm going to explode if I don't find something interesting to focus on. I assume this is a pretty common feeling for ADHDers, so I was wondering if there's a name for it like there is for stimming or hyperfixating

I don’t think there’s a specific term for it more than just boredom. Like you said though, feeling boredom intensely is common for ADHDers, and it’s often described as almost physically painful. I run into problems when I try to explain this to people without ADHD, because our definitions of boredom and how unpleasant we find it is different. Followers, do you experience this? If so, what do you call it or how do you describe it?
