Danielle, please let me just share that you are not alone. I just found this network and read the 50 tips first, and whoaa... there it was. I too always thought that these do apply to everybody and I never could figure out why people couldn't follow whenever I tried to explain something while it was so clear to me.
My son was diagnosed as a child and it helped me recognize myself and forgive myself for my past "mistakes".

Your doodling at the meeting was NOT boredom, the error was on the side of the person criticizing you. It is just that we need to be motivated OUR way to be able to pay attention, and so often we have no interest (or motivation) when we detect (or even suspect) that a speaker at a meeting is on a very linear level, unlike us with ADD who always think in so many dimensions.

I just wish I could draw this for you in a sketch and you would perfectly understand.

For some people it may be boredom, when they doodle and drift away, but you do not need to burden yourself trying to figure it out. You have ADD and it is NOT a bad thing. Please find the positive in it, how life is so much more interesting with all of us having ADD. We are the creative ones to keep everybody else on their toes, to keep things interesting. We are the ones who can experience stronger than most people. You are in good company, enjoy it.

Please forgive that man, it was merely an uneducated response that has nothing to do with your quality as a human being. You have so much to give!
