I Promise I’m Not Trying to Be Rude If I Interrupt You

I have a problem with… finishing others’ sentences. Interrupting them before they have a chance to finish their thought. It is something I am not proud of, and for a while, I thought I was simply self-centered.

But now I have a better understanding of why I do this. Impulsivity is the main reason. And a fear of forgetting. My struggle with interrupting others is due to my attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) — it’s a component of hyperactivity and impulsivity.

This is further amplified during my occasional episodes of hypomania and mania as a part of having bipolar disorder. I typically don’t share this with people because it sounds like an excuse for rudeness, doesn’t it?
