I worked with a client who has a few behaviors characteristic of ADD, but is not really ADD. His main issue at this point was how to spend leisure time at night after work. He works hard with no problems focusing on a task he enjoys, but gets fidgety after work regarding leisure time. Like some ADDers, he doesn’t want to spend more than an hour reading or watching TV; it’s too passive.

As is typically the case, his spouse has an opposite brain style and likes to sit and watch TV or read after work. In general, an ADDer has boundless energy, and often has to engage in a physical activity after work, such as using a treadmill. Or he can sign up for some class of great interest, perhaps a dance class, which his partner might not want to do.

If you are an ADDer and have a problem with leisure time, what do you do?

I still don't know what the difference between ADD and ADHD is. They look just the same for me. But this article makes a point on what ADD is.
